The problem was that the dryer did not work when the start button was pushed.
The cause was the paddle that controls the door switch. I fixed it but thanks to those who gave suggestions.

    Ok, lets first check your thermal fuse.

    You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #11 screws as shown in your parts diagram here: Bulkhead parts for Whirlpool GEW9250PW1

    Unplug or turn the breaker off to your dryer first before opening it up and ohm testing.

    Then you will need a multimeter to ohm your thermal fuse. Its #59 in that parts diagram, take both wires off the thermal fuse first.

    Here's the thermal fuse for your model you can order here if needed:
    Thermal Fuse WP3392519

    This video shows how to test it:

    Let us know what you find.

    If the thermal fuse tests good, We've had a few members report door switch problems.

    You can check it for continuity with a multimeter to make sure.

    Here's that door switch you can order:
    Door Switch WP8283288

    It shows on Page 4-6 in your repair manual I posted a link to below how to access it to check/change it. Make sure your dryer is unplugged!

    Push the button in on the door switch with one meter probe on COM and the other meter probe on NO and see if it reads. Normal ohms is 0-1.

    If the thermal fuse and door switch check fine, then its the control board.

    Here's the control board for your model you can order here:
    Main Control Board WP8546219

    I'm attaching the repair manual pdf for the Whirlpool Duet dryer below.

    It shows how to get access to the control board on page 4-2 through 4-4.

    Unplug or turn the breaker off to your dryer first.

    below is a link to the manual

Dryer is coming on for 3 mins and stops

I have a Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer that I purchased in Jan 2009. It does the same thing. I have had 4 whirlpool service out ot repair it and none of them could. Now I am being given a hassle from Whirlpool about replacing the unit. I am reporting them to the better business bureau. If your dryer is still under warranty you can try to get them to fix it like I did. But I can't promise that you will get anywhere. I used to think that Whirlpool was the best as mistake. I will never buy another Whirlpool appliance.

Control panel

I was able to fix our problem by running through the control panel diagnostics as outlined in the repair manual, which I found here:

All the diagnostic steps were successful and after I had worked through the list I was able to use the Automatic Cycles. Hope this helps!
