Resolved Question:

My whirlpool dryer (model number GEW9250PW0 will not run a cycle. It will turn on and allow me to choose my cycle (bulky items) but then when I push start it comes up as 'sensing'. It will not engage. Anything I can do to reset my dryer or correct this without needing a service call?

Hi I,m John I will help you with the dryer not starting .
Before this happened was it taking longer to dry a load of clothes .

No, I had actually just finished a 15 minute quick dry (timed) for some sheets. My daughter put the next load into the dryer and this is what we got.

I'm not sure what the drum light is exactly but there is no light that comes on when I open the door.

If no drum light the problem could be the door switch,open this link for the lid switch and instructions on how to replace the switch.Let me know how you make out please .
