Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
We have a whirlpool duet elctric dryer. It runs but there is no heat. We have checked the breakers and they are fine. The model number is GEW9250PWO. What are our next steps?
If the breakers are okay and you have power to the dryer the problem would be one of two issues.
The first and most likely is the thermal cut off. This is a small temperature activated fuse that will trip if the air flow through the heater is poor, this is usually due to a plugged lint filter or restricted vent pipe between the dryer and outside.
The second is the heat element itself has gone bad. You can measure it with an ohmmeter or physically inspect it for breaks. The image I have attached shows both. The T cut off is part 47 and the element is part 14 both visible with the lower panel taken off. The lower panel has 2 screws visible while laying on the floor looking straight at the panel.
The part numbers for the components are 279973 (cut off kit) and 3387747 (heater)
