    Whirlpool Duet GEW9250PW1 Wont Heat

    Model Number: GEW9250PW1
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hello all... I have a Whirlpool Duet electric dryer (MOD GEW9250PW1) that will not heat. Thermal Fuse was blown, replaced with new one but it did not fix the problem. I also replaced the Thermistor but it still won't heat.

    I checked for continuity on the heating element and both thermostats and they appear to be fine.

    I checked to make sure that I have 240v on the terminal block and that checks out.

    Dryer will run, just won't heat. I checked for voltage on the leads that go to the heating coil while the dryer was running and have no voltage to the heating element.

    All vents clear, no lint blocking airflow.

    Would appreciate any help you can provide.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am assuming that you have the tech sheet/wiring diagram.

    With the dryer running measure across the heater relay contacts at the control board (should be a red wire and a black wire)

    On air only it should measure 240 volts.
    On a high heat setting it should be 0 volts.

    If you see 240 volts across the contacts when the unit should be heating then you probably have a control board problem since you say that the thermistor is good.

    Thank you for the reply denman. I checked the heater relay contacts as you described and have 240 volts for both the "air only" and the "high heat" settings.

    I'm assuming that the Thermistor is good since I replaced it with a new one. I tried to check the new one with my analog meter and am not sure.

    Sounds like it's time to find a new control board.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Which thermal fuse was originally blown? It isn't very likely that the thermistor would be causing this type of problem.
