Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II electric dryer, model no. GEQ8858JQ0. For the past couple of days it has shut off after 20-30 minutes of running. After an hour it will start again after I press the start button again. Just monkeying with it today and it sometimes just buzzes at me rather than starting back up. I assume something is overheating (and may be fried as of today) but where should I start looking?

Motor bad ..most likely your exhaust vent is blocked and lint has built up around motor frame ..motor has probably overheated and damaged either the windings or bearings

Sounds like the knob is not on correctly, or is not the correct knob, or the plate with the numbers on it has moved. When it turns off naturally, does that line up with 'off'?

Whirlpool ultimate care ii dryer, only works when continuosly pressed the start button. What can be the problem. whirlpool ultimate care ii dryer model gew9878lw0


More likely than not either the start/run switch on your motor wen't bad, or the motor windings itself. Either way you need to replace the motor #279827 around $100 on up.
Not tough to get to if you know how to gain access to the cabinet, just remember that the blower wheel and motor threads going into the blower wheel are LEFT hand thread,
have fun, and best of luck,

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
