Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer

Whirlpool dryer does not start and beeps.......

I have a 4 year old Whirlpool Dryer and was doing several loads of laundry....and when I went to do the next load, the light went out in the dryer and the dryer is locked in a mode whereby I cannot start the dryer. It just gives a few beeps and keeps blinking. I tried to restart by clearing everything and unplugging the dryer, but it is caught in this cycle. Any suggestions?

    Almost the same problem. My dryer is 7 years old..

    My dryer just clicks when I press the start button that it will not start.

    I'm thinking that the timer has gone out. I have been reading about it and think maybe it is something called a thermal switch that gets too hot.

    if you find out anything, please let me know.

    I have the same issue. I can press the start button and all i get is a clicking noise. I was thinking it could be one of three things:



    The button that has to be pushed is broken.



    The switch on the door to actiate the dryer is broken.



    Or



    The motor is broken.



    (I do not have the same model but it is a whirlpool and it is over 20 years old)

Same problem here, however I can assist the start by rotating the drum while pushing start. May be a capacitor problem???

My 5 year old Whirlpool dryer just didn't start one day.Instead of dealing with repair,we got a used 4 year old Maytag dryer.It dried the first load,then when I pushed the start button it made a weird...


It is the motor winding shorted out which caused the smell. If you still have your old dryer the safty thermal located on the exhaust housing is blown. White plastic with 2 wires going to it. Very inexpensive repair. Hope this helps.

Dryer will not start after bulb burned out.


moch, the fact that the light is staying on when the door is closed leads me to believe that the door switch is the culprit. If that switch is not made you will not start. See if the pin is broken off. Start there and let me know. Catriver.

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
