Whirlpool Duet Dryer GEW9200LL1

7 posts in this topic

Hello repair gurus, I have an electric whirlpool duet dryer model GEW9200LL1 that I am having a little problem with. The controls come on and they seem to be working fine but when I attempt to start it I hear a click and then the sensing light comes on and the timer counts down but that's about all it does. After reading several possible reasons why it may be doing this I replaced the thermal fuse but that didn't work. I also checked for broken belt but the belt seems to be intact. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

- Unplug unit.

- Take top off (3 screws at the back top)

- remove the electronic control cover - left side top - 3 screws

- access plug P1

- Check for resistance between P1-4 and P1-3 on the board. If the resistance is anywhere between 1 and 6 ohms, then replace that control board.

That will likely be the problem. There is further testing that can be done, but it has to be done live ... big ouch if you touch the wrong thing! So do this procedure first.

Update. Right after I posted this, i searched the site for similar post and another user fixed the same exact problem by fixing the sensor connection. I attempted to so just this and it lead to me to taking off the top cover, control panel, door and frame... disconnected the sensor strip and reconnected... put it all back and started it. This time it was a little different, I thought I was seeing things but the drum moved just enough for me to notice it. I manually turn the drum a couple of time closed the door and started it... it worked! I had to leave for couple hrs and my son was very happy he can now do his laundry after the wash he dried this clothes but it stopped working again half way through... back to the same problem. I am not comfortable with testing live electricity so I will call a repair guy to come check it out but besides testing live wires does anyone have any more suggestions on what might be the cause of this.

thanks in advance.

I was more worried it might be the board/control that is bad that thing cost about $250. When I run the diagnostic the display shows 88 before try to start it... after start it displays shows 06. Any idea what 06 means? I tried look it up but couldn't find it.

Remove the lower access panel and retrieve the technical documents within (don't forget to put 'em back) - tech sheet will explain diagnostic codes, by your description of the problem, you've got a motor that's about to crap the bed

Or a bad / intermittant solder connection on the motor relay on the control board.
