Question and Answers

Q:

WHIRLPOOL DUET DRYER GEW9200LW1

A:

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I am sorry you are having this issue with your dryer.

The most likely cause of this issue is a bad door switch. Check to see if the light turns on properly when the door is opened and turns off when the door is closed. If the light stays on when the door is closed, then you have a problem with the door switch on the dryer. Even if the light turns off, you could still have a problem with the door switch if it is not closing a contact to indicate to the control board that it is closed. The diagnostic test to check the door switch is provided in the image below. This can help you check this component. If the door switch is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the door switch is not the issue I am also including the other checks for a no start issue below. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please perform the diagnostic testing I have included here and report back with your findings.

Q:

Why won't my Whirlpool dryer model GEW9200LW1 run?

A:

If your dryer will not start, it may detect that the dryer door is still open (even though it isn't). Check to see if the light turns on properly when the door is opened and turns off when the door is closed. If the light stays on when the door is closed, then you have a problem with the door switch on the dryer.

Even if the light turns off, you could still have a problem with the door switch if it is not closing a contact to indicate to the control board that it is closed. The diagnostic test to check the door switch is provided in the image below. This can help you check this component. If the door switch is bad, it will need to be replaced.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details. We will be glad to help you further if needed.

Q:

Why is my dryer GEW9200LW1 not completely drying in sensor dry but it will dry fine on time dry?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

First, In order for the sensor dry feature to dry properly, you do not want to mix loads (fabrics) and you also need to have a fairly full load and not just a few items. The dryer must also be level or just a little lower in the front in order to insure the clothes the clothes will touch the two moisture sensor bars on a regular basis. The two metal sensor strips/bars could also have a coating of fabric softener on then preventing them from sensing moisture correctly. Locate the two metal strips located inside the dryer below the lint filter grill and wipe them clean with a clean cloth with some alcohol on it.

I also added an image below showing how to test the moisture sensor and how to access the thermistor for testing. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel.

A:

Pedro: Based on your additional details one of the wires has likely come disconnected from one of the moisture sensor strips. You can remove the lint filter grill from inside the drum by removing the two screws. It should have two wires connected to it and one has likely come off. Note: Disconnect the power cord before removing the lint filter grill.
