Re: Whirlpool GW9200L Gas dryer

The first thing to check is the door switch. It is a pretty common failure I am running into lately.
Post back with any questions.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.

First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

The dryer will not operate. you can press the buttons , all the lights come on, but as soon as you press start you hear a clicking sound and then nothing happens. I seems the dryer is on but nothing is...

go to the back of dryer,remove the back panel,look at blower housing and you see a white thermostat like part with 2 cables. that's the thermofuse. use a multimeter on continuity(beep sound) and disconnect one wire and put leads at the 2 connector of fuse. if no sound then replace it. this is the most common problem. after replacing part check vent at wall that is clean of obstructions.

unplug dryer, remove back panel, look for a white part with 2 connectors on the blower housing and remove one, using a continuity or ohm meter put across the leads and if you hear no sound or see no reading in meter replace that part. is the thermal fuse. this is the most common problem for that failure.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp

The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer won't start

Did you take the shipping blocks out? They are inside the machine. You will need to remove the access cover on the back and look in, you cant miss them. Good luck

Whirlpool LER5644EQ2 Electric Dryer that won't start

Regarding model LER5644EQ2, here is a link to a parts website complete with an assembly drawing and parts list. In all probability,you have a blown thermal fuse and that will need replacing
Item #23 on the drawing .. a quick test would be to ( with power removed or disabled) measure the resistance across the two terminals and it should not be an open circuit or it is blown. The drawing shows exactly where it is and the parts list shows the item number/ cost and where to buy a replacement. Hope this helps..

Regarding model number is YLEQ5000PW1, you may have the same problem with your thermal fuse.. the parts website does not show a detailed darwing of your model but it should be similar to the other one I've cited in the location and thermal fuse.. The link I am sending is for the parts list for your washer and the thermal fuse..

Let me know if that isn't the problem and we can look at other ways to zero in on a solution..
Hope this helps...
