Dryer Keeps Shutting Off
« on: April 21, 2012, 12:46:58 PM »
Model Number GEW9200LW0
Dryer runs for a little while then shuts off and will not start.
Sounds like it's trying to start again, but won't.

My guess would be that your motor is probably going out.

Common problem, replace the motor and clean the lint out of the dryer and duct.

Your model dryer uses WHIRLPOOL Motor Part # 279787

just a side note, most will have a burnt cooper or electrical smell when that happens. Its usually a dead giveaway.
