Whirlpool Duet dryer no run

Subject dryer model GEW9250PW1 will not run, only the control locked light will work. Checked everything, suspect a bad
control board 8546219. Hope I'm right, rather expensive.

This may be a dumb question, but if the control locked light is on. Have you tried to unlock the control?

For dab147315 I checked the thermistor, reads 10 Kohm at room temperature, but the button test is valuable. If the cancel button is bad, the control cancel
status cannot be canceled, is this correct.
 For Lowsl2, I am guessing the control cancel can be canceled with the cancel button.

Will do some more testing of the panel buttons and check earth ground. Oh, there is no control lock release on this model.

I think LowSL2, is saying that the control lock is on why the light is on..


Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately five seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off. The control panel is now unlocked
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!

I alway tell people 5 sec because I had one customer that tried some 20 times .. but never held it for a full 3 sec.. Or tell them to hold it until the light goes out....some people count faster then others...  also printed on the control panel  but have see it rubbed off..
