Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
I HAVE ABOUT A 2-3 YEAR OLD WHIRLPOOL DRYER... CAME HOME FROM VACATION TRYING TO START THE DRYER , AND THE DISPLAY PANEL LIGHTS ARE VERY DIM, IS SET TO THE HEAVY SETTING AND WILL NOT TURN ON. WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR THE LIGHTS ARE ON.
I UNPLUGGED THE UNIT OVER NIGHT AND PLUGGED BACK INTO HAVING THE SAME ISSUE! HELP!
I had this same problem and read several website with complaints to this issue. people replaced the control panel and or the interface panel. I am an electronic tech. and I found the issue on mine was the ribbon cables from the control board to the interface board had excessive resistance. I unplugged all four ribbon cables from the control board and interface boards and reseated them. My dryer has been working flawless now for 5 months. P.S. alot of people replaced their interface board to fix this issue. I am thinking maybe their problem all along was the cable assembly?

I had the same problem dim lights nothing happens when buttons pushed. I went through the trouble sheet that was in the drying and it pointed me to a bad control board. After replacing the control board it work. Awsome huh. Not it did the same thing a few hours later. I was able to unplug and replug and it worked for a bit and stopped again well after a few times of that it stopped all together. I was kinda upset after spending 135 bucks on that. I didnt want to put any more money into this machine. I took the machine apart and checked all the connections and wires. Removed the front panel and took all the ribbon cables off and made sure those were good too, (didnt short out) everthing checked out. For grins i replaced the 30 amp circuit breaker. The voltage was there but maybe its not getting the amps. I put the drying togeter enough to see what it dose. I didnt want to risk the chance of messing up the control board i bought while doing this so i used the OLD ONe. ( board was sitting on the dryer tub not bolted down). Well low and behold it works. I have been testing it for about 3 hours now. turning it off and on. change the setings on the dryer and so far it is still working. Before it would have messed up already.
