Hello John, Thank you for the question. Normally this is an indication the Roller Wheels, Idler or belt will need to be replaced. We suggest ordering the Maintenance Kit. The kit includes the drum belt, drum support rollers, one idler pulley, four tri-rings, and one clip. We hope this helps!

I turn the power on my dryer and it’s not working it keeps lighting up sensing what does that mean
For model number WED6200SW1

Hi Donald, Thank you for your inquiry. Although usually your control board can be the culprit for something like that. You should test the Thermal Fuse in your appliance. Sometimes that can be the cause of your machine stuck in the sensing mode. To test your fuse, you will need a multi-meter. First unplug your appliance and remove the fuse. Set the multi-meter on the lowest setting. The calibrate the needle until it lands on zero. Then you take the two probes and place them on the prongs of your fuse. If the needle stays on zero, then your part will need to be replaced. I hope this helps!

To help someone else: Issue was display would light up when powered on but would not run when pressed start and only make click sound without error code. Did diagnostic (3 sec pressing, 3x off/on, any button but power, start or pause) and received f25. Checked ohm on thermal fuse wp3392519, it was 1.25m ohms but should be close to 0. Was told by sears that f25 was thermistor wp8577274. Replaced both and it works.

my dryer is squeaking when drying sometimes not all the time
For model number WED6200SW1
PartSelect logo
Hi Danny, thank you for the question. We have found that if the drive belt becomes loose, it wraps around the outside of the dryer drum and can cause squeaking. We would recommend checking the drive belt, part number PS11746376, to fix the issue. We hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

Dryer was working, but no heat.
First I unplugged the dryer, then removed the back panel, this exposed most all of the wiring and I could see the heater coils.
Not knowing what the problem was I started looking at the coils and could not see any broken parts.
So then checked the thermal fuse for continuity I removed the two wires from it with a small pair of needle nose pliers, it was held in place by two screws, once they were removed the fuse came out easily, I checked continuity with a volt meter placing the meter on X1 Ohms and could not get a reading.
I replaced with a new one and put it all back together the way I took it apart.
Then I plugged it in and it worked first time, I now have warm dry clothes.

Dryer motor runs, but no heat
To reach the heating element you only need to open the back cover of the dryer (about 8 nut-head screws). Remember to disconnect the power.

To remove the heating element there are two small nut-head screws. Remove the two electric wires. Then you can pull the heating element away.

You can check the heating element with an ohm-meter or visually inspect it to see if the heating element spiral wire is broken.

Don't hurry to dispose the old element. My model includes a small electric safety part. You'll need to transfer it to the new heating element (that comes without it)..

Good luck.

No Heat
First tried heating element and thermal fuse with no luck. Ordered thermal cutoff and fixed problem. Had I used an ohm meter first I would have determined problem before having ordered heating element and fuse, as both had resistance. I wast just lazy and ordered the took the most common failed components first before taking dryer back off.
