WHIRLPOOL DUET DRY MOD#WED9400STO

I BOUGHT THIS FROM THE STORE (LOWES) AS A FLOOR MODEL "AS IS". IT NEVER STAYED ON. WHEN I TURN IT ON, IT SHUTS OFF AFTER A FEW SECONDS. NO ERROR CODE - JUST TURNS OFF. I HAVE THE EXTRA AMPS PUT IN BY AN ELECTRICIAN AS REQUIRED. BEFORE THROWING GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD, IS IT WORTH HAVING A REPAIR MAN COME?

EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR ANY HELP.
THANK YOU,
MARY

SOURCE: Duet dryer mod YGEW9200LW1 wont throw heat

coul be a fuse pn: 279973 or heater pn:3387747
I don't believe that is a heater because its a new machine.
You can get the parts at sears . com and search for parts.
If you open the botton plate of your dryer you gonna see at the right side the heater and screwed into the heater is a thermostat and a fuse.
Before replace the heater , make sure that your vent is cleaning otherwise its gonna blow again

SOURCE: Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

Whirlpool Duet dryer not drying like it used to


If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

Duet gas dryer shuts off after 15 min


I cleaned out the vent that was clogged pretty good, put dryer back together (a solution I read in this blog), and now it is working fine. I was testing with bottom open.

My Whirlpool Duet Dryer is not heating up. Unit is only Two year


If it is a gas dryer. Sounds like thermal fuse. It costs about $12.95. Most appliance part stores carry it all the time. Very easy to replace. Also can be ignition switch (also cheap). If you know someone who is mechancally inclined, after removing fuse,they can run an electrical jumper cord to the two open ends. If the dryer begins drying, then it is definitely the fuse.
Go to Whirpool site and get part number and diagram to fix. Maytag repair can help at a costly figure after they order part since Whirpool bought Maytag.

Whirlpool Duet Sports unbalanced...


be sure the 4 screws that hold pedistal to bottom are tight ..next lower washer all the way down run all 4 feet up as far as possible next adj front legs until washer is firm on floor and has no motion when manually rocked ..tighten lock nuts to upper limit of legs to keep them from backing out if still have excess motion try adj 1 leg at a time while in spin ..also possible weak floor ..these machines are quite heavy and need solid flooring..also machine may rock some at low rpm but usually steady at max
