    Default Whirlpool Duet WED9200SQ0 Not powering up

    Model Number: WED9200SQ0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Jake, Thank you for this site. It has given me a starting point to work from. I did not find an answer to question yet and will still look while I wait for a reply.


    Problem: I press the power button and the dryer will not power on.

    Troubleshooting:

    With what I have read so far, I have taken the dryer apart and cleaned it out. It is amazing how much lint gets caught up in there. I put it back together and still nothing.

    I do have a light on inside the dryer when I open the door.

    I have reset the breaker that the dryer is on at the house electrical panel.

    I was also able to get the dryer into maintenance mode but do not have any codes. I will insert a pic of the buttons and lights in maintenance mode.

    In maintenance mode I can press the wrinkle button and the dryer will go through what seems to be a cycle. (about 2 min)

    Out of maintenance mode, nothing.

    I am not sure ware to go from here.

    Thanks for all of the help you have provided so far.

    Unplug the dryer and remove the cover plate over the terminal block. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the center terminal of the plug and the center contact on the terminal block. Determine which terminal of the plug is connected to the left-most contact of the terminal block or black wires. This will be L1. Access the machine control electronics without disconnecting any wires to the control board. With an ohmmeter check for continuity between the L1 terminal of the plug and P9-2 (black wire) on the machine control board. Check for continuity between the Neutral terminal of the plug and P8-3 (white wire) on the machine control board. Visually check the P5 connector is inserted all the way into the machine control electronics.

    Thanks for the reply. I see on other posts that sometimes there is a video reference for an explanation. Is there a visual for this?

    Not that I'm aware of. What problem do you have? If you need me to explain something better, I'll try.

    That's fine. I do better with visual then reading. Not a problem. I know what the terminal block is and will start there.

    How did you get it into maintenance mode? Did you get it back out of that mode?

    in one of the service manuals on this site it said:

    Press a button and hold for 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Repeat this action to get into maintenance mode.

    In this case I pressed the start button. On the display there was the word "yes". I then used this button to get into what I thought to be a maintenance mode.
    All of the lights seemed to go into a test pattern and then stay on as in the picture that was attached. I pressed the up and down arrow keys to see if I could get an error code. All that did was display 88 instead of 8:88. If the "Wrinkle Shield" button is pressed the dryer seems to go through a cycle. The drum spins and air comes out of the vent. 2 min is displayed and then stops. I can get out of this mode by pressing the cancel button.

    I think you activated the manual load test. Let's do it again. Make sure the dryer is in stand by mode, plugged in, and all the indicators off. Select any button except pause/cancel. Press and hold for 2 seconds-release for 2 seconds-press and hold for 2 seconds-release for two seconds- Press and hold for 2 seconds. If the diagnostic mode was entered successfully, all the indicators on the console will illuminate for 5 seconds and 8:88 will be shown in the display. If there are no stored fault codes or active fault codes all the indicators will momentarily turn off then stay on and 8:88 will be shown in the display.

    If there are active fault codes they will be flashing in the display. If there are stored fault codes F will be displayed and the number will be flashing.
