I have a whirlpool dryer model. # GEW9250PW0. Control panel

Customer Question

I have a whirlpool dryer model. # GEW9250PW0. Control panel is totally dead but drum light comes on. Can you tell me what is wrong. I can't waste mony since i am retired.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: About 13 years to 15 years
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I always do my own unless under warranty.Yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Recently the minute display flashed back and forth between timed dry and touch up timed. Occasionally the dryer beeped which I believed was associated with airflow not enough so I cleaned it thoroughly as I did about once a year. It helped but seemed to continue less frequently. I lowered the temp setting which helped a lot. Do you need serial numbers to help with the model number?

Unplug the machine for 5 full minutes to reset the control. Does the behavior change when powered back up?

The main control will need to be replaced. The video at the link below shows how it is accessed for replacement.

I tapped on the buttons and it started working. It doesn't appear the control board is bad. Thanks anyway.
