Hi.

Repair is done testing element, thermostat and timer board.

A problem cusing this is often a plugged element. That means that the element stays always on because of a contact.

If that is not the problem, then thermostat may be shorted (it reads zero Ohms when limit temperature is reached, not opening and causing overheating).

Check also the status of the thermal fuse.

If all the above is Ok, then test the control board.

The timer board rarely causes this kind of problems, the problem is likely in the heating system.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Many of your better dryers have an anti-wrinkle function. When a load is complete if you don't take care of it, every little while the dryer will turn on for a few minutes to fluff the clothes and beep to remind you.

My whirlpool duet gas dryer (model ggw9200lw1) is taking too long


There is a rare chance that the gas supply is clogged. Dealing with gas pipes is dangerous business, don't fool with it unless you are experienced with plumbing. After checking a gas pipe, do a bubble check for leaks with dish soap from a sponge or sprayer. There are small filters and traps placed here and there in the plumbing of some units. They are similar to the ones on a washing machine hose, but smaller.
