Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer

Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer Model Gew9200

My dryer just quit working today, it isn't getting any power to the control panel , but the inside the dryer itself works. I have been reading all of the troubleshooting help sections, and it seem this is quite common with this dryer. Im guessing (from what I have read...that its the computer in the control panel. My first question is how do I tell if this is actually the problem.... I cant afford a service call right now, my son has leukemia and money is tight, I had a warranty the expired Feb. 08 go figure. Is there anyway that is cheap to fix this , or am I better off buying a used dryer for now. There was lint on the comp. board, Im sure this probably assisted with causing what ever is wrong with it, I just assumed the repair man that came out 2 times a year to work on it while it was under warranty would have noticed the lint on it and at least mentioned it to us, so now that its no longer under warrranty and we have fallen on hard times it goes out, Please tell me there is an easy fix, or at least a way to tell for sure that the control panel is the problem. About how much does it cost to repair something of this nature...
Thanks for all of your help

    Same damn thing!! Warranty expired in Feb 08 and control panel went out.

    It cost me $380.00 from the service repair center. $200 for the part and $180.00 for installation, about 20 minutes of work. Never again will I buy a Whirlpool product.

I can understand how important it is to have your dryer working properly. However, without the model number, I can only provide some general information on the issue. There are several components that can cause a dryer to stop heating. These depend on the source of power that the dryer uses. If the dryer is electric the problem could be caused by a failed thermal fuse, hi limit thermostat, control thermostat, thermal cut-off, or heating element. This could also be cause by a blown household breaker (there are two for this type of dryer, and one can blow or pop without the other one), or a failed timer. Some of these will also cause a gas dryer to stop heating, such as the thermostats, the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-off depending on your model. However, there is also the ignitor, the burner, the safety valve, or the coils that can cause it as well. In order to determine which part is causing the problem you will need to test the different components. If you could reply with your model number and any additional details about this, I can then provide a more detailed answer.

Control panel not working


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the dryer you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. If still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Gas dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms you may experience with your dryer.

It won't start
The light doesn't work

Not getting any power at all from whirlpool duet dryer gew9200


When we got ours it had the same problem. A service call would have taken days so I simply unplugged the unit (safety first!), and removed the top (a number of sheet metal screws). In the front left I noticed a couple of "ribbon" cables and one was hanging loose (obviously NOT connected). I looked around and located where it was supposed to be connected and snapped it in. Plugged the unit in and Voila! all worked. Unplugged unit again, put the top back on and everything has worked since then.

ONLY DO THIS IS YOU HAVE THE TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND MAKE CERTAIN YOU UNPLUG THE UNIT BEFORE ANY ATTEMPT.
