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.

My controls locked button light is on, pressing cycle button for 3 seconds does not turn it off. any other suggestions? thanks

Unplug the unit from the wall for 2 min's then plug back in and depress the lock button and hold until the beep or light shuts off. Sometimes it will take more than just 3 sec's and sometimes as long a 20 sec's,

Front loader dryer control lock is on how do i get it off

The control lock is a feature you can turn on so someone can't change your settings after you start a wash, or a child can't start up the washer on their own if the lock is on. There is a subscript under one the option buttons on the dryer that says Control Lock Hold for 3 seconds. Hold the button in for 3 seconds or so and the lock should turn off. This is a common issue because most do not use this feature therefore do not know about it. If this doesn't do the trick the dryer has a control problem. Good luck.
Thank you
