I just came back from vacation, and my Whirlpool Duet dryer (model #GEW9200LL1) was beeping. The lights for softer & louder tone were flashing intermittently and it said '51 minutes' left in cycle.

When I left, the dryer was empty, dry, and in working order.

When I came back and opened the dryer door, the inside of the dryer was **wet** - there was even moisture between the panes of glass in the door. Granted, I live in Alabama where humidity is always a problem, but inside my dryer? How did that happen? I'm guessing that this moisture came up from the vent, entered the dryer chamber, and fried the electronics somehow. Does that make sense?

I turned off the breaker to eliminate the beeping, and now the dryer is completely dead - no lights on the panel (although the interior light is working, so I know it's getting juice). Can somebody help?

I bow to your all-knowing. Thanks

DO what you can to totally dry out the machine, you could have a bunch of moisture in the user interface. It's possible that it may work if totally dried out. Fans and dehumidifiers would help. Or drag it out side and let it bake in the sun for a day. It's a small chance of getting fixed this way, but you need it dried out anyway, all that moisture will cause problems.

Sounds like living in a sauna.

Maybe take the top panel off, and the front lower panel. Also leave the door open, and set up a few fans. That moisture has to go.

Nick, it is like living in a sauna. Went to the store yesterday,it had just rained. Miserable. I almost wilted like a mess of lettuce with bacon grease poured on it( a southern delicacy). any ways you're right  that moisture has got to go.
