WHIRLPOOL Dryer Won't Start
« on: December 02, 2014, 03:07:49 PM »
Hi, I am working on a Whirlpool Dryer Model # GEW9868KQ2 - No matter what cycle you select it just comes on sensing and does not start, I wet the sensors and tried it again and now it says wet but does nothing but the time goes down. I checked the start fuse(thermal fuse) and it's OK. Is it the board or maybe the sensor? How would I check the sensor? or what else do you think it might be! Thanks in advance for any help!!

I find quite a few of these with a burned solder connection on the motor relay.  Whirlpool says the board should be replaced, but if a customer is unable/unwilling to spend that much it can be resoldered, but I always make sure they understand it's probably a temporary fix. (NO WARRANTY)

I come up with this as your part number.http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-electronic-board-8566150-ap3841286.html
Repair clinic says it has to be rebuild so do does two other major appliance sites.Wonder wants going on with a lot of whirlpool appliances that are not that old that the boards have to be rebuilt?
