GGQ9800PW1 Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2

Thank you! When you start the dryer, do you hear several clicks or just the motor starting?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

No clicks, just the motor

Thank you! Remove the lower access panel by releasing the two clips between the bottom access panel and the door panel. Slide a putty knife between the clips and the lower panel and hinge it down. Locate the white Thermal Fuse, number 59 (pictured below) and, with the dryer unplugged, remove the wires from it and tape then together. Will the heat then activate if you start the machine?

still trying to open the panel with a butter knife


 

Take your time, I am not in a hurry at all. Make sure the dryer is unplugged, too!

Unplugged and open. Hope you are watching football and enjoying a good drink!

I opened the panel and hinged it down. The diagram you sent me does not resemble at all what I am looking at. No idea where #59 is. I can text a picture if you want

Yes, if you can post a picture to this forum, I can mark the picture for you. That part is behind the lint filter housing.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Take the 1/4" screw out that is on each side of the lint filter and the filter itself. Then, remove that metal filter housing and you will have full access!

Would this part be upside down and plugged in held down by a 1/4 inch screw? Having trouble downloading a picture

Yes, it has 2 blue wires going to it, I believe.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Found it and the wires are red. I cannot send pictures for some reason. Wires will not pull out. I'm running out of time

The part is white and rectangular, right?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

I have the correct part. It matches the picture. The red wires are plugged in at the bottom of the picture but you cannot pull them out. The only way I could get them together would be to splice the insulation but then they would be disconnected from the part. I have no idea why I was able to send you the first picture but now cannot.


 

Can you use the paper clip or tree icon? The wires should simply unplug from the terminals.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Yep, good! Use a screwdriver to pry them off and tape them together.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Where do I pry them off? At the base where it connects to the part or the top where the wires connect?


 

Top where the wires connect to the metal terminals. They are tight but are designed to just pull off. Them, tape them together and see if it then heats.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

OK, I see it. They are clamped REALLY tight and there is very little extra wire slack so I have to be very careful


 

They can be, sorry this has been not so easy, but we are almost there!
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

It is clamped down by a round metal piece with a little clip- like hook in the back, almost as if to make sure no can pull out the wires! Seems impossible without just cutting the wires and attaching them. But then I . do not know if I would have enough slack to reconnect

Place a wide flat blade screwdriver under each terminal and twist, they should pop off.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Done! Gas kicked in and had some heat. I turned it off because it smelled like something was burning (mildly)


 

Great! You need that part and make sure the vent is clear, that is why they open. GREAT JOB! The part is available below! Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

The burning odor is due to the filter housing being off and the air flow is not as designed. Once it is all reassembled with the new fuse, it will go away very quickly.
