Q:

Duet Dryer Whirlpool Residential dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when your dryer is stuck in the sensing mode.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Whirlpool Dryer model number GEW9260PW0.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is also another component connected in a series circuit between the thermal fuse and motor called the broken belt switch. If the drum belt breaks or becomes derailed, the belt switch will open and break the electrical circuit to the motor. Make sure the belt is on and the belt switch is closed. If the belt is on and the belt switch is okay, then it could have a faulty electronic control. The only way to verify if the control board is faulty is to program the cycle and press start. Next, the voltage will need be measured across P1-4 and P1-3 and then across P1-4 and P1-2. If 120 volts is not measured across P1-4 and P1-2 and across P1-4 and P1-3, the control board is most likely faulty.

NOTE: I do not recommend measuring voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 The first thing I would check is the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter.  The thermal fuse can accessed from the front of the dryer. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the front lower access panel.

To remove the lower front access panel, remove the screws at each top corner. The thermal fuse is mounted on the upper right side of the blower wheel assembly. The thermal fuse will have two blue wires connected to it.  I added an image below showing where the thermal fuse is located.

Be sure to disconnect the two wires from the thermal fuse before measuring across the two male terminals for continuity with the Ohm meter.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Joey I checked the Thermal Fuse and it is fine, anything else I can check?

Mark: The next step will require measuring the voltage at the thermal fuse. I do not recommend measuring voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. One of the wires connected to the thermal fuse will lead up to the control board up under the top of the dryer and the other leads to the broken belt switch. The voltage can be tested from each blue wire to nuetral or ground for voltage after pressing start. If you do not measure 120 volts on the each blue wire to ground/neutral, the control board could be faulty or it could have faulty door switch. If the door switch is faulty, the dryer will not start. I added an image below of the wiring diagram. I traced the motor circuit to reference.

A:

Mark: The next thing to check is the door switch operation. Under the top is quick disconnect harness that is connected to the door switch harness. You will need to remove the top and disconnect the door switch harness connector. When the door is shut, the Ohm meter should measure continuity across the blue and white wire. If it doesn't, the door switch is likely faulty. If it does measure continuity, the control board is likely faulty. Use the wiring diagram I provide in my last response to see the circuits.
