Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer

I have been trying to use my dryer for the last 2 days. When I push the start button it beeps once and the sensing light comes on. It is as if it is stuck in sensing mode. But there should be nothing but the dampness of the clothes too sense as each time the dryer is cool. Can you offer some assistance?

    We are experiencing the same problem. Have un plugged and re plugged unit, switched circuit breaker on and off....so far nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated.

As this issue involves multiple user's, I am going to provide a link directly to the Whirlpool Corp. so that any information provided or collected will be documented to the factory in an effort to maintain quality service.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.


Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If this doesn't help, post me back and I will do some more research to help resolve your issue.

Dryer will not start when pushing start button it just clicks once


This sounds like a problem with the thermal fuse blown which is wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is terminated when the thermal fuse blows and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite dryer problem.

Dryer won't start. I push the start button and it beeps once and then won't start. Door is closed, no error messages.


Hello- It sounds like the dryer is not sensing that the door is closed, in other words the door switch may be faulty or there is a communication error to the control board. Unfortunately you may have to have someone out to take a look. Good luck, best regards.

I am having the same problem. Dried towels last night. This morning, I loaded it, turned it on, it did not lock the door or start drying (spinning) but the timer started counting down. I pressed Cancel twice, unplugged it for a few minutes then tried again. Problem still exists. Any suggestions?
