Question about Whirlpool GEW9250P Electric Dryer
My Whirlpool duet dryer (stacked on top of washer although detached) is plugged in and was working just fine. But now the light will turn on when you open the door, but the numbers do not appear on the top so I can't press any buttons to make it work. The guy who lives in the apartment below is a handyman and thinks I need a more flexible hose and a longer cord. He advised to get assistance first.
If your control panel display isn't working, a longer cord and more flexible hose won't fix it. You either have a control panel that has failed, or the wire harness that leads from the main control board to the control panel has an open or short, or has come loose. In addition, flexible dryer hoses (like the plastic ones) are not recommended because they tear easily, crimp or crush easily, and mice love to chew right through them to find a place to nest. It is highly recommended to stay with a semi-rigid duct hose, because they resist crushing, crimping and clogging. I hope this info helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.
