It appears your thermal fuse has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Dryer will not start when pushing start button it just clicks once


This sounds like a problem with the thermal fuse blown which is wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is terminated when the thermal fuse blows and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite dryer problem.

My Whirlpool duet dryer was moved by the painters and when moved back makes a thundering noise when turned on coincident with the drum roation (ta...THUMP, ta...THMUP). Any ideas?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


After reading your question, it seems that the belt has come loose causing this thumping sound. You'll have to get the belt back in place so that it works. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Whirlpool Duet dryer is making a loud squeeling noise when drying.


Hello, the squelling noise from your dryer may be coming from the drum rollers. May need to be opened up and lubed. It can also be the idler pulley, also can be lubed. Disconnect power, remove lower panel, and see if you can isolate the noise. Oil where necessary. If you can't get to it, the drum wil need to be removed. If something is locked up or damaged, it will need to be replaced. Caution: Don't stick fingers near moving parts when running :-> Hope this helps, Rich

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.
