Whirlpool Duet Dryer (or KitchenAid or Roper) Not Tumbling Repair Instructions

  • There is a line of Whirlpool Duet Dryers (front load)  that are starting to fail. The problem is that they will not start tumbling or doing anything when you push the button to start drying...the readout displays information and all appears as it normally would, but the dryer is not tumbling (nor drying anything, obviously). The "sensing" light may light up, but nothing happens.  Or,  your dryer light is staying on even though the door is closed and the dryer won't start up.


Figure 1 - Typical Whirlpool Duet Dryer with Problem of Not Tumbling

This particular problematic dryer is a Whirlpool Duet model number GEW9250PW0.  This same dryer is sold under the brand names of KitchenAid (Kitchen Aid) & Roper.  This dryer was about 4 years old when the problem just appeared, so I would suspect others are seeing it around this same time frame or so (after about 4 years of service).  This repair steps you through the thermal fuse replacement, step by step, with detailed pictures of the entire process and has the repair of replacing the door switch (in case the problem isn't the thermal switch).


Figure 2 Tools Required for Repair

Tools Required:
1. Needle Nose Pliers (this is optional, but will make part of the task super easier than using your bare hands).
2. 1/4" Socket Wrench or Nut Driver (if using a socket wrench, an extension of approximately 3" is suggested...as shown in Figure 0.2 above)

Part  Required:
There is a part required to complete this repair.  That part should cost approximately $15 from your local appliance parts store (or even cheaper if purchased from the internet).  I will show you within the instructions where and how to get the proper part.

Time For Repair:
Mechanically Inclined - 15 minutes
First Timer - 30 minutes

This is an  Easy Repair / Low Challenge Repair...anyone with the ability to use the tools shown in Figure 0.2 and with the instructions should be able to repair their dryer quickly and cheaply.

Cost to do it yourself (if you already have the tools):  About $34.99 ($15 for the part + $19.99 for the instructions).

Cost to Repair by Repairman:  $220 as quoted by a repair service.

Savings: $185.01

What People are Saying about this Repair:

A Life Saver (Dryer Not Tumbling)...

Dear Duane,

I'm in communications ... and that's a business where if you're doing your job right, you DON'T hear back from people. But every once in a while, it's nice to get compliments, and I want to share one with you.

Yesterday, my dryer stopped tumbling. I am in the midst of potty-training my son, and let's just say this is not the time when you want your dryer to stop working. What's more, it was Memorial Day, so there was no one to call for an urgent repair. I googled the problem, ran across your site, and voila --- step-by-step instructions! We got lucky and found an appliance store that was open and carried the part. The hardest part about the repair was getting the screws off the front of our dryer, but we had it back up and running in less than 45 minutes.

Not only did you save us from a very "messy" pile of laundry, but also the expense of a repairman! We got the problem fixed for under $40. Plus, my husband, who is ordinarily not one to take on a problem himself, got the credit. I'm thankful I found your site. And hopefully I won't need you very much in the future, but if something else breaks down, you can bet I'll be back.

Best,
Lauren -

Stop the Harrassment...

Hi Duane
Let's just say, I love you man! You hit it right on the nose. My wife is very happy with me and the harassment has stopped. I really appreciate your help. I will definitely be referring your site to my friends. The dryer works as new.
Thanks Again
