Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
First, go back and check the power cord configuration. There is a difference between how a 3 and 4 prong power cord is connected. Copy and paste the following link to your browser:
If you connected the power cord wrong, you may have simply blown the thermal fuse. This is a small plastic looking component (usually white in color) with two wires attached to it. Its located on the air blower housing inside the dryer.
If the model number is correct, you can access the thermal fuse by following these steps:
1. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the door, by locating the screws under the bottom front edge. You can gain better access to the screws by propping up the two front feet of the dryer (a 2 x 4 works well for this).
2. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.
The thermal fuse should be located on the air blower housing directly below the drum in the front. A resistance check should read something close to zero ohms (short) if good. If you have no continuity, the fuse is blown.
NOTE: Make sure you have the dryer UNPLUGGED and the wires disconnected from the fuse, when taking resistance checks.
If you have questions, or need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
