Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My GEW9200LW1 Dryer has the following problem. the power lights all come on, but after I set the type of cycle and press start, it clicks once and then it hangs up with the sensing light on. I pulled the lint filer screen, replace the two senors, but that did not solve the problem. I need help as I cannot afford service, and I'm technically capable with the right info.

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Dryer needs to be reset


If the dryer needs to be reset simply because the cycle needs to be changed, stopped or altered, press "Power/Cancel" once to cancel the current cycle. Select the new desired cycle, followed by any modifiers and cycle options. Then press "Start/Pause" to begin the new cycle.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet however, your whirlpool duet needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE/CYCLE SIGNAL button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool GEW9200LW1 won't run


Could be that the belt has broken and triped the belt safty switch. If you reach into the dryer and rotate the drum in a clock wise rotation and it moves extreamly freely. It is probably the belt.

Dryer will not start after bulb burned out.


moch, the fact that the light is staying on when the door is closed leads me to believe that the door switch is the culprit. If that switch is not made you will not start. See if the pin is broken off. Start there and let me know. Catriver.

Installation


okay, you may have DSl or cable as your ISP, let me post both for other's use

better if you start off with a clear router.

locate and press the reset button on the router for 20-25 seconds, then let it go, after so unplug the power, then plug it back in after 15 seconds. this router's reset may be hidden, use a paper clip or a pen to do this, it will be tagged "reset" eitherway.

once that is done follow these:

check your PC's IP.
XP
click start>run>CMD> then click "OK"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

vista
click start(orb)>on start search type in CMD then press "enter"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

if your IP address shows 192.168.1.xx (xx being a number from 2 to 253), you may close the window and proceed to the next step.

if your IP starts with 169.254.xx.xx please repeat resetting the device, then the power cycle.

okay so you got a good IP, follow these then.
for DSL ISP (that uses PPPoE)

1.open IE
2.on the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 then hit go
3.it will as you for a username and a password, leave the UN blank and the PW is admin, if that did not work try putting admin on both username and password.

when a linksys window shows up, you will see tabs like:

Setup
Wireless
Security
Applications and Gaming
Administrator
etc

*on the setup tab, look for a line or an item sayiong "Internet connection type" click the drop-down menu then set your connection to PPPoE. you will then see a space for your username and password, type in the UN and PW from your DSL ISP, then click on "save settings" on the bottom part of the page.

-after this go to the Status tab and you will see your internet IP address, if not you should have a "Connect" button on the middle of the Status page.

for Cable ISP

1.open IE
2.on the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 then hit go
3.it will as you for a username and a password, leave the UN blank and the PW is admin, if that did not work try putting admin on both username and password.

when a linksys window shows up, you will see tabs like:

Setup
Wireless
Security
Applications and Gaming
Administrator
etc

on the "Setup" tab, look for a subtab that says "Mac Address Clone" then:
1. enable the clone service
2. click on the "clone your PCs MAC"
3. click on "Save Settings"

once saved, we do a power cycle including the modem.

1.turn the modem and the router off
2.after about 10 seconds, turn the mdoem and wait for the light infront of it to be stable. (like the "online" light should be solid)
3.once it is solid, turn the router back on, then let it sit there for about 15 seconds or modem until the power light is solid

once both devices are on, go back to your Linksys setup page, click on the status tab and you should be able to see an IP address on the internet section, once you have it, you're now online.

Cannot connect to internet


best way to check if your ethernet is working (internet port) is by looping. get an ethernet cable, connect one end to either one of the local ports (1,2,3,4) at the back of the linksys router, the other end of that will then be connected to the Internet port or the WAN port. if the internet light goes on upfront, that will mean your internet port is working.

okay about making this work with your modem, it is still best if you start with ground zero on the router.

locate and press the reset button on the router for 20-25 seconds, then let it go, after so unplug the power, then plug it back in after 15 seconds.

once that is done follow these:

check your PC's IP.
XP
click start>run>CMD> then click "OK"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

vista
click start(orb)>on start search type in CMD then press "enter"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

if your IP address shows 192.168.1.xx (xx being a number from 2 to 253), you may close the window and proceed to the next step.

if your IP starts with 169.254.xx.xx please repeat resetting the device, then the power cycle.
