Customer Question
I have a Whirlpool Duet...
I have a Whirlpool Duet GEW9250PWO that will start sometimes and sometimes not. You can kill power and it may start after pressing the start button several times.
Alos, it will run for a few minutes then stop.
Any ideas?

Understood. I have used this service before and have always been pleased.Take your time. I have the dryer top off and have a multi-meter on standby.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Please stop. I believe I have found the problem. I have a burned solider joint on the motor relay on the power supply board.
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

ya it's either the motor which I was writing up how to do the test or a bad motor relay on main board

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,

would you like me to tell you how to determine for sure which it is?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I pulled the board and looked at the back side. A big ol' black burned joint on the relay. I cleaned off the carbon and it the lead is just floating in the socket.Let me solider this and we can go from there if needed.
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

here I will just tell you:

measure the resistance across P1-3 and P1-4. If resistance across P1-3 and P1-4 is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, replace the board.

Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,

refer to the schematic for locations of p1-3 and p1-4 on the board:

I already had the info pulled up so might as well give it to you in case you need it.

I see the last person has opted out of your question!

My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Ok the bad connection on the motor control board .

would NOT cause the unit to some times start and other times not to start.

and when you say (Start) do you mean for the unit to power up or that it does power up and fills but that the drive motor stops

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The unit powers up and all lights/buttons are operational. It will sometimes start running and other times won't. It always heats up.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok so your saying that it heats up even if the drum drive motor is not running?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

and when it powers up but will not run does the time display still count down?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When you get it to start, motor runs, drum turns and it heats up. You may have to push the button and reset it about 10 times before it starts.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok you said (It will sometimes start running and other times won't. It always heats up.)

#1 My question is when it Always heats up is it heating when it is not running?

And have you opened up the interface to see if you have any thing wrong with the start button lever?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It only heats when running.Start button appears to be ok.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok how can you say the start button is ok if you have to push it over and over to get the unit to start?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I hear a relay clicking and it sometimes bumps the motor. Plus, I ran the diagnostic test and it worked.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok so you press the start button and can hear a relay on the main control click and or the motor starts then stops.

You have a faulty relay on the main control board.

You need to replace the main control board.
