Whirlpool Duet GEW 9200. HAs run for 5 yrs w/ no problems. Now it does not dry the clothes completly, it leaves them very damp and requires 2 or more cycles. I've run the troubleshoot diagnostics and no codes were given. I've replaced the thermistor, problem still continues. Any suggestions?

    I forgot to mention the first thing I did was clear all of the lint from the pipe in the machine to the vent on the exterior. I went so far as to disconnect the duct in the basement so I could get to to the exterior vent.

Clean out the vent . the air flow will slow drying . and no codes will be given . this is very common .. also ck the tubing in back for any kinks . and if kinked think of this a 3in vent will add 50 % to dry time so make sure your 4 in vent is clear and no kinks .. mm

Do this next....disconnect the exhaust vent tubing from the back of the dryer. Turn it on and see if it gets really hot running for a few minutes. If it does reconnect the exhaust vent tubing and run the dyer again for the same amount of time provinding the inside drum has cooled down first. If it ran the same amount of time as it did with the vent disconnected and not so hot inside the vent tubes ore clogged up with lint build up. A moister semsor detects that and puts the burner into the check mode. It was divised this way 20 years ago to prevent house fires which was common with dryers back in those days

Leaving a white film on everything


Hi, what you are currently experiencing is as a result of dishwasher detergent, combined with mineral deposits from hard water, which in yurn can leave a white film on the inside of the dishwasher.
You have to clean the dishwasher by sprinkling baking soda onto a damp cloth. Scrub the inside of the dishwasher to remove soap scum, grime and mineral deposits.
Pour 2 cups white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher on and run it on a full cycle. Stop the dishwasher halfway through the wash cycle and allow the vinegar and steam to work on the remaining mineral deposits for 20 minutes before resuming the cycle.
Open the dishwasher and dry the interior with clean, dry cloths. Keep the door propped open for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the dishwasher to dry completely.

Hope it helps....

Whirlpool duet dryer - when using the settings that automatically sense if the clothing is dry the dryer is saying the clothes are dry but the clothing is still damp


Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...


This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

My Whirlpool Duet gas dryer doesn't seem to be drying my clothes. The clothes are staying damp.


If the load is extremely large or heavy it may require more time. If you are using the auto cycle and the clothes are not drying try setting the sensor to a "more dry" setting. Make sure the lint filter is clean and that the exhaust vent duct is not clogged. Check all the way to the outlet. If all is clear then the thermostat may need to be replaced if it is not calling for heat as often as it should. Also check to make sure there is air flow from the vent. If not then the fan/blower may be broken or disconnected from the motor shaft.

Hello, I have a whirlpool Duet dryer model number GEW-9200LQ0. The problem I am experiencing is when the dryer is turned on and you go to start either an automatic or manual cycle the sensing light turns...


You must have a bad thermistor. The program aint getting any signal from it and dont know the temp inside the dryer.
When you call for drying the control checks with the thermistor mounted on the blower housing inside the machine. The reading informs the control the ambient air temp. The dryer kicks in and does another check after a moment to see if everythang is kosher. If it determines dampness then it continues onward till the desired resistance reading indicating the clothes is all dry and she goes into cooldown no heat to allow the clothes to keep from wrinkling. You either have a bad thermistor a bad control or a bad connection between the 2. Look for Dan Webster youtube appliancejunk repair manuals and find your free manual i have in there. Thanks good luck.

Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck
