The Whirlpool GEW9250PW0 Duet clothes dryer helps you get your clothes ready for the closet when it's too wet to hang your laundry outside. Common problems with this appliance usually stem from the power supply, the controls or the way the appliance is used. Troubleshooting these issues helps you get your appliance back in working order without paying for a technician. This is useful when the warranty or your home insurance does not cover your dryer.
Check both of the dryer's two fuses or breakers; one might have tripped during an electrical fault. If one of the pair stops working, the dryer might spin without heating up. Always use time-delay fuses.
Ensure your dryer is hooked up to a 240-volt power supply. The standard 120-volt supply is not enough to power the GEW9250PW0. Have an electrician examine your dryer's setup if you suspect a problem.
Hold the "Start" button for three to five seconds when drying a large load; the drum won't start spinning with just a quick push. Make sure the door is tightly closed and that your chosen options are shown on the control panel. Only select "Air Only" or a delayed start if necessary for your clothes.
Hold the "END OF CYCLE SIGNAL" button for a few seconds; the child lock could be stopping from you entering instructions and this action turns it off.
Lift the lint screen out of the door frame and brush away any trapped dust. Do this at the end of every cycle; the appliance might struggle to dry your clothes if the screen is heavily clogged. Wash the screen with warm water if you find a large amount of lint in the trap.
Tips & Warnings
- Try breaking your load in half; it could be too heavy for the motor.
