Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer - DOES NOT START
« on: September 24, 2014, 06:52:23 AM »

Just came across a Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer - Model#GGW9250PT0 last night that when plugged in will not start. It powers on with LED's lite but when you press the start button the motor does not activate. Here is what I found - pulled the top off the Dryer and went looking for the control board. After removing the control board (top left of dryer) under the top lid I dismantled the control board and removed all the wires connected to the board. Took board out of mounting bracket and found a BURN'T COLD SOLDER JOINT that supplies power to the Motor on the Board. So if your in a pinch and don't have a replacement board I pulled out my Dremel and cleaned the contacts then plugged in my soldering iron pencil point and resolder the joint. Re-installed the Board - plugged wires back in and GUESS WHAT ? BINGO ! EVERYTHING WORKING PERFECTLY !!

I'll see if I can take an "AFTER REPAIR" Photo but it will look just like a clean Solder joint. I'll See what I can do.
