Whirlpool Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Dryer are pretty simple. The thing they need most is air flow. Remove the hose from the back, open the windows, and try a load of washing. If it works, airflow is the issue, blocked hose, turns to tight, vent not opening properly. Those are the three main reasons. If you google 'make model parts schematic', you may find that there are three or 4 heat regulating devices, cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat and thermal fuse being three common ones. https://www.partselect.ca/Whirlpool-Dryer-Thermostats.htm ..

Remove the attaching screws at the bottom and swing the cap up.

Whirlpool Dryers • Answered on Jan 10, 2021

The sound comes from a tiny element on the control board. Its volume is fixed and can't be adjusted.

Whirlpool Dryers • Answered on Jan 10, 2021

Doesn't make sense does it! The pipes and vents might be blocked at the back, but then it would get very hot and trip out on the hi limit thermostat.

Whirlpool Dryers • Answered on Jan 01, 2021

Checking the switch would be a good idea - doesn't matter how much continuity you have, it isn't going to work if the power can't get in there, go round and around and then get out again. Continuity checks are the most use when it finds something wrong but it isn't unusual to find ohm meter checks misleading when elements or other things are wired in parallel circuits. Continuity checks really need each part of a circuit to be isolated or disconnected from the others - the ohm meter is a good way to check components but sometimes not a good way to check out a circuit. Clearly for the sake of safety the ohm meter is the first device to reach for but when those checks are exhausted without finding a definite fault it is time to use the voltmeter and chase the power through the circuit to find where it stops... If you don't like the idea of that very much, sometimes the most useful tool is the mains tester screwdriver - a small screwdriver with a neon bulb and a high value resistor in the handle and a metal cap - the working voltage is always engraved on the handle so don't get it mixed up with a similar looking screwdriver for testing car electrics. When a terminal is live and the screwdriver blade touches it and your thumb or a finger touches the metal cap the neon will glow. These gadgets are safe, cheap and indispensable in the handy person's toolbox...

Found the culprit. The thermal fuse was blown. Had no conductivity with ohm meter so I placed a jumper around it and presto dryer runs. Cleaned the exhaust and fan but found no blockage and really was not that bad. Hoping maybe just a weak part. The model on the Whirlpool Duet electric dryer is GEW9250PWL I believe the the last three are just the color. The part number on the Thermal Fuse is #3392519. This is easy to get to through the front panel just below the load door. Hope this helps some else out.

Sounds like the heating element is bad saying it's electric dryer.
