Question about Whirlpool Dryers

Open Question

Whirlpool Duet Electronic Gas Dryer drum won't turn. The drum on my Whirlpool dryer model GGW9250PW3 stopped turning during a cycle when a hard item (a child's soccer shin guard) got wedged between on of the blades and the cover to the light. The dryer stopped trying to turn within 5 seconds. When I tried to start a new load, all indicators seem to work properly, but the drum does not turn. I did unplug the dryer for 5 minutes before trying again. Any ideas? Thanks!

Elsewhere on this forum a fix was given that is rather easy. Someone in your home has activated the child safety switch. On the lower right hand side of the control panel, hold the bottom button in for 3 seconds until the light goes out.(safety control lock switch)

SOURCE: Control Panel in my whirlpool duet dryer model

First check for 220 volts incoming power to the dryer at the terminal block on the rear of the dryer.
If you have 220 volts,check continuity on part number 59(thermal fuse) in the attached diagram. No continuity is a bad part.

cut and paste this link to your dryer diagram.

How do I turn on bell on my dryer


From the Whirlpool user manual:
(OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an End Of Cycle Signal. The
signal is helpful when drying items that should be removed
from the dryer as soon as it stops.
?
On some models, the End of Cycle Signal is fixed.
?
On other models, the End of Cycle signal is part of the
Start button and is selectable. Turn the PUSH TO START
button to ON or OFF. The signal will sound only if the
selector is set to On.

My whirlpool duet electric dryer electrical systems and heat work fine, but drum won't turn and belt is in tact.


Check the motor capacitor,sometimes the capacitor could be faulty or the motor is faulty or check if the motor is receiving power,if it's receiving power try to replace the capacitor if the is any in the system,if still it's not working then the motor could be burnt.

Also check weather the timer is perfecty.
