Dear stacey j,
Welcome to fixya,
Please send me the complete model number and year or age of your electric dryer.

All you said, was help!
Is the dryer new?
Have you ran it before?

Try this method first till you send me the info.

Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Like with an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!

Please remember to leave a appropriate rating when you are done!
Thank You
Huuum

GEW9200 electric dryer turns fine but won't heat up. I tested the thermal fuse, thermostat, heating coil and they are fine. What am I missing?


If you have 240 VAC to the dryer, the control likely has a faulty relay for the heater. Provided all the thermal fuses (especially the one on the side of the element can) are good and the voltage supply is good, the control will likely need to be replaced and is available below.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer model # GEW9200 runs fine except will not heat up


It appears your Thermal Limit Fuse has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Where is my heating element located?


Remove the access cover in the rear, and it will be right there in front.

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

Kenmore HE4 no power to control, no sound, but the drum light bulb on when door opened


Another post reported replacing the power cord. I am trying to determine if this is a factory defect. Check the power at the power cord connections inside the dryer. You could have lost power on one leg and the other 120 volt leg is letting the light work. Let me know what the model and serial number is.

Not getting any power at all from whirlpool duet dryer gew9200


When we got ours it had the same problem. A service call would have taken days so I simply unplugged the unit (safety first!), and removed the top (a number of sheet metal screws). In the front left I noticed a couple of "ribbon" cables and one was hanging loose (obviously NOT connected). I looked around and located where it was supposed to be connected and snapped it in. Plugged the unit in and Voila! all worked. Unplugged unit again, put the top back on and everything has worked since then.

ONLY DO THIS IS YOU HAVE THE TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND MAKE CERTAIN YOU UNPLUG THE UNIT BEFORE ANY ATTEMPT.
