Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I don't understand..

Ck for a button with hold to lock under it hold button 3-5 sec

do you mean "Hold to Start" (instead of hold to lock)? or is there something else on the circuit board itself that you are referring to (open unit, look inside)? Just trying to clarify...

    I did manage to get "general" control back, however it still "does it's own thing". Many of the settings from the selector knob don't work, sometimes turning the knob to a slelection will cause the dryer to randomly start, and sometimes the only way to get the unit to stop is open the dryer door (although turning to the HD option and holding start/cancel for 3-4 seconds generally works). Not sure what to do at this point.

When I push the start button on my dishwasher, the "hold 3 sec" light blinks but nothing happens and no other buttons work.


It sounds like the control panel is locked. See if one of the buttons says lock and hold it down for at lest 3 seconds. If the control is locked, that should unlock it. Its a child safety feature.

Error message on a whirlpool microwave of LOCK


Look carefully for a button which has small print under it that says something like "Lock - hold 3 sec". Press and hold that key for 3 or more seconds to unlock the keyboard. It's a child-lock feature.

My refrigerator keeps beeping as if I left a door open. on the panel it says "dispensor and button" 3 secs Things in the freezer are starting to thaw out.


http://us.lge.com/download/product/file/1000000180/LRSC26980owners.pdf

I looked and looked in the manuals and the only thing that I found for dispensor and button was the lock and unlock of the dispensor - if you hold the lock button down for 3 secs it will either lock or unlock the buttons. So you need to check to see whether the controls are locked or not. If they are then unlock and set the temperature for the refrigerator and freezer on your control panel.

http://www.ajmadison.com/ajmadison/itemdocs/8645A_Eng.pdf

I don't understand why your food is thawing unless there was a power surge that changed all your settings.

If this isn't the problem, let me know and I will look further. Troubleshooting a problem without being able to see what the indications are, is something that takes a lot of trial and error.

The only button that will respond is


with controls unlocked, you can not power on or start? ck to see if you can get to diagnostic mode.
old duet(red leds) -select drain/spin cycle, no spin (modifier), press prewash 4 times in 5 secs. all lights come on then displays codes, f code are faults
new duet/sports(green leds) - press and hold any one modifier button 4 sec on 4 sec off 4 times.
