I would first unplug the unit and remove the top cover. There are 3 screws towards the back of it. Push the cover back towards the wall and pull off. To the left you will see a control panel (usually black metal case), remove the 3 screws and flip over so you can see the control. Make sure there are no loose connections. I have ran into quite a few that had relay connection wires loose. If everything is ok. The next thing you would want to do is remove the front lower access panel (kick plat panel) and blower chamber. There is a thermal fuse and a thermistor located behind it. If you have a meter then take the proper continuity tests that are displayed on schematic. Both the thermal fuse and thermistor are fairly cheap.

Sounds like a problem with the control panel wiring (wire(s) connected to wrong place(s)), although the control panel could be faulty. I would first carefully check all the wires at the back of the control panel against the dryer wiring schematic.

GE DCXR463EA1WW that has stopped heating.

Probably a bad heating element. Sometimes one side will burn out before the other, so it takes a lot longer to dry. Then the other side burns out and it won't dry at all. Usually thermostats last longer than elements.

I have a whirlpool duet

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200L always at "Wet" step - skips "Sensing"

Hello. To test properly, the dryer must be put in diag mode--a key dance of pressing "more dry, less dry--more dry, less dry" within 5 seconds with the door closed and dryer off. All lights will be illuminated and "88" will be in the display. If you open the door and a tone is heard, along with seeing a software revision number in the display, this means that the moisture circuit is shorted. *If this does not happen*, then open the door and, using a wet cloth or finger, bridge the moisture sensor bars located on the filter holder(metal strips approx 1/2 apart and several inches long). If you do this and a tone is heard and the software revision number is seen, THE SENSOR PASSES THE TEST. If it doesn't, you're going to have to troubleshoot further with a voltage/ohm VOM meter, or better, call for service because, unless you've done this before and know what to expect, you are gonna be INVOLVED in disconnecting sensor wires and checking electrical resistances and so on. You'll have to remove the toe panel(bottom panel on front of unit) to access the sensor wires. To exit diag mode, simply unplug the dryer for about 30 seconds. One thing though, if there is a lot of lint build-up, the sensor bars could be shorted by a bunch of lint crammed between the contacts--have seen that one on occasion.

How to find thermal fuse

Remove the top of the fryer and you will see wiring all along the underside. You should see the a small disc shape about 3/4 inch high. That would be the thermal fuse. They are fairly cheap or you can bypass it for the time being until you get another fuse.

Control locked is on

First try to unplug the dryer for 30 seconds, I then plug back in and see if it resets itself. Next, you will need to locate the wires that lead to the licking device and disconnect them and wrap electrical tape around the ends.you will have to disassemble the control panel to access it. It would help if you have the wiring diagram handy to make it quicker. It should be located on the back panel of the dryer which gives you access to the motor, wiring, etc.
