Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Time skips from 18 minutes to 6 minutes on automatic mode

Our Duet Dryer is about 2 years old. It is indoors at house temperature.
We start the dryer at 22 minutes in automatic mode. It runs to 18 minutes then drops to 6 minutes. It runs down to 1 minute then shuts off. The clothes are not dry.
The machine can be run in manual mode.

It is the moisture sensor system, it is not sensing the wet clothes. Open the door, inside you should see a part with 2 metal bars that is around 3 inches long, clean these bars with a mult purpose cleaner. Sometimes fabric softner sheets and detergent builds up on this so that the machine cannot sense the moisture. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Duet dryer time skips mins.


clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

Duet dryer is getting too hot in both automatic and manual modes.


Check you venting. Sounds like it it stopped up with lint, etc. The vent starts at the connection in back of the dryer where the 4" flex hose connects to the dryer all the way to the outside of the house. Hope this helps you.

The clothes simply won't dry. I know it is producing heat because the clothes are warm and the heating element is hot to the touch, but the air that is coming out the back is not hot at all. I have...


The valve resistance is 1995 ohms and the ignitor is 185.
*******************************************************************
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When the dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
*****************************************

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
*******************************************

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.
***************************************************************
Hold down on the 'More Time' and 'Less Time' buttons and press the 'Power' button. if it comes up with tE1 or tE2 you have a thermistor error.

This is a problem I've seen before, or something similar. I think you've got a bad connection on the neutral wire. Either in the plug or at the panel. Have electrician check the neutral wire back to the panel from the plug.

E-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer


“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.

The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
supply connected.
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
and Start.
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time
pushbuttons.
