Whirlpool Duet Dryer GEW9200LW1 Won't Start

17 October 2011 - 06:32 PM

My elderly dryer has had a stroke. First, early stages of dementia were setting in - I would turn the selector knob, but lights on the other side of the dial would light up, and I couldn't get a cycle to start - other than manual. Being lazy, I decided I would just do everything on manual until I had a chance to fix it.

Unfortunately, dementia progressed to a seizure. I am still able to set times for the manual cycles, but now when I press and hold the start button, the motor doesn't start. There is the expected beep along with a small audible "click". The dryer is clearly hallucinating, as sensing light comes on as if the motor has started...but it hasn't. I'm not sure how to break the news to it that it isn't really running. :lol:

I shot a video of me putting it in diagnostic mode and going through all the tests in hopes of someone being able to quickly point me in the direction of what to check first. I did not get E1, E2 or E3. The selector lights did not respond for the video test (though they did on the first try - go figure), and the dryer did not start - I just got the thing beeping back and forth as shown at the end of the video:

Thanks in advance for your help!
