Whirlpool Duet GEW9250 Dryer; Only Running in Delicate Cycle

Just purchased a Duet dryer from a friend who's moving (it's two years old). The dryer works fine but I can't get the large cycle knob to work on any cycle but "delicate". The "delicate" light is flashing. I called Whirlpool and, after trying to "clear" the system by unplugging for a period and also pushing the "pause cancel" button twice, the problem remains. Anyone have the same issue and have suggestions? Thanks much!

    Thanks for the reply. Is there no way of opening up and checking out the cycle control switch to see if it can be repaired without replacing the whole thing? If I need to replace it, what's the easiest way of getting the part number? Thanks.

    Do you mean replacing the "control board" or the user interface "control panel"?

I suggest that you replace the whole part of the knob. It is called CYCLE KNOB.

Hi you can actually open that with a few screw drivers and stuff, the problem comes in where you need to identify the part and from there you will need to find a replacement of that specific part.

however, if you ask some service shops about the control switch part, they might actually have this.

hope this helps.

That knob is actually a switch. fixing it will be much easier, if you replace the whole switch unit..
good luck..

Whirlpool Duet Dryer not heating


The first thing to do would be to check if the element is broken. Most dryers have a couple of screws that hold the top, and it opens like the hood of a car. The next step is to remove the drum, usually a couple of screws holding the front.
