My start button is giving us some trouble but once we get it started it runs for maybe 5 minutes and then shutsdown. In about another 5 minutes it restarts and then shutdown again by itself. Any Ideas??

Latest Questions

I have a Kenmore Elite Gas Dryer that is old enough that I can't remember when it was purchased. It dries okay but has a high pitch whine when running. Are there any bearings that can be lubricated? Any likely fixes that don't require replacing the motor? Thanks

Hi my drier is a whirlpool duet model # GEW9250PWO I put the control on and put any cycle then press start everything look normal the time is normal but the motor is not turning, next I did a bypass of sensor but still the motor not doing nothing, next I remove the plug of the motor and put my meter to check if the timer is sending the power, next I put the control on and press start and gave me 240 ac volt went I put start ok that mean that is sending the power but the motor is now turning on my opinion is the motor but what is your opinion did you want me to check something else thank you I will wait for your respond.

I replaced the motor on a whirlpool duet because it won't spin anymore. After replacing the motor and putting the dryer back together, and turning the machine on, the drum spins, but now it won't stop spinning. Pressing the cancel button turns off the control panel, but the machine keeps running. Even if the machine is spinning, there is no heat. The only way the machine can be stopped is if you open the door, or pull the plug from the wall socket. On timed dry, the minutes do not count down. The control panel was working fine before I replaced the motor. Is the control board now damaged?
