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.

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.


Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

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.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Where is my heating element located?


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

Lights on at the power supply but display doesn't light up and no stair resistance.


Remove the cover on the side where the power cable goes in. There is a connector on the inside there. Inspect the wires going from the inside cover to the alternator. Sometimes the wire pulls out of the connectors. Other than that you will need to troubleshoot all the wires with a meter and see where your power is getting lost.
A good tech support line is National Gym Sypply if you know how to use a meter, know the names of the parts, these guys can help.

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.

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.
