I would open up the outer panel and take a look at the control area and see if there is anything out of the normal. Clean it up and see if it starts to work. Make sure you unplug it and let me know how this goes so I can suggest what other things you may try.

    Could you take a picture of the controls with the dash line showing and email it to me at bestdarntootingood@yahoo.com so I can see it for clarity.

    I'm thinking possibly a fuse needs to be replaced. Do you have an ohm meter to check connections at all?

Hmm sounds like the main controll unit is shot
it isnt any other component cause there arent any error codes, to fix this on you may need to contact a service center or a local repairman. NB:: parts are only avilable from your manufacturer you cant get the CU instrores.

Just a thought, I have an LG unit that I get the same dashed line as well. I have to take a shop vac and clean out the area where the lint filter is put, then I have to unplug the unit to reset the control board. Works for that type of unit, you may want to try it.

Good Luck.

    Darklord, found a local parts store that I have used in the past and they have a listing for the control board for Whirlpool Model GEW9200L. Here is the site for you to purchase it aftermarket or you could order it directly from Whirlpool. Here

    Same part # is listed on the Whirlpool site for the control board.

  • Thomas Van Tress
    Thomas Van Tress Jul 20, 2008

    Control board part # is 8557308 type that in the search field on upper left and it will bring it up.

    Sorry I couldn't help any further, as for the Appliance Part Company, I have yet to have them not have a part for me. I am fortunate to have them local in Tempe, AZ

Why do the Automatic cycles on my Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer not always work?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

My whirlpoolduet dryer is on control lock how do I unlock it model # gew9200lw1


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.

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?

Whirlpool duet GEW9200L control


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Whirlpool duet dryer will not start. Panel lights come on as usual and when press start machine clicks and will not start. Light on wet sensor lights and no drying action begins.


press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly. This is a secret test and reset for your dryers control, so please keep this between us. The whirlpool people would be heart broke if they see this posted on the web ;-) . If your dryer will still not start after this test, you may need a new control. If you need a part let me know and I can ship it right to you. Good luck and I hope this will fixYa and saves you the $400.00 it would cost for whirlpool to send a certified tech to come to your home.

E-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer


“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.

The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
supply connected.
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
and Start.
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time
pushbuttons.
