Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.

Dryer was working fine. Went to start another load in the dryer last night and when I pushed start, it only clicked. All lights on the control panel are working, but the dryer does not start or sound like it is trying to start. It only clicks and the lights start flashing. I have unplugged and replugged and this did not help.
I have checked the door to make sure it is closed properly. Any more suggestions?

A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.

You may have a venting problem. Check outside to make sure vent is blowing good. It is possible that the motor may have went bad with all of the problems associated with a clogged vent.

Dryer just sits and hums


if you push the start and it just humms it is a bad dryer motor to weak to kick on,to confirm this have sombody hold the dryer door button in and turn the drum when you push the start button,if it jump starts you know it's a bad motor-mike

Another Whirlpool Cabrio Sensing issue


Hi-- none of the solutions I've read here are working. Same problem, dryer not starting, it says "Sensing..." and then "Wet" and does nothing. It worked fine on the last load, except I noticed it read 11 minutes for a very, very long time (I think it got stuck). New load? "Sensing..." etc.
