I have a GEW9878LW0 Whirlpool Gold dryer. It will not start when I push the start button. I did all troubleshooting ideas in manual but have had no luck.
When you open the door does the inside light go on?
Yes it does. I’m getting power and it makes a clicking noise when I push the start button.
Can you open the console and do you have a Volt-Ohm meter so you can check components?
No I can’t I don’t have one. Sorry.
Okay, you could have a bad motor control, a bad control, motor even a bad door switch
as you can see there are several different items that it could be.
Without a way to test I could only guess what the issue NORMALLY is which would be the control.
Okay, now I have a continuity tester what do I do now?
