My dryer won’t turn on, the light comes on but nothing else…

Customer Question
My dryer won’t turn...

My dryer won’t turn on, the light comes on but nothing else happens. When checking the breaker one wire to the breaker was dark but breaker checks good

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Whirlpool duet mod # gew9200lw1, about 13 yrs I think

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hopefully 🙈

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of, we’ve had no problems from dryer in past
