Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Plastic box with wire on back of ge profile harmoney DPGt750

A blue wire was sticking through a plastic plate on the back of my dryer. This plastic piece is on with a screw and on this piece it says "up". Once you take this off there is a blue wire connected to the dryer.

I was cleaning the back of my dryer and my vac cleaner got hooked to it and blue broke the wire.

I've looked at my manual and called GE with no help on what this wire does and if it can be repaired cheaply. They want $118 just to come look at it.

HELP?

It's hard to tell for certain from your post, but it sounds like you broke the wire to a thermistor (part # WE04X10111). It is a little temp sensor which extends into the dryer about a inch with two same colored wires coming out of the exterior end. Easy to replace. remove cover, remove one screw holding thermistor. unplug white disconnect block. install new part. very simple, saved the $118, only cost ya the price of the part. (maybe about $35 or so) A FixYa rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

My GE dpgt750 dryer will not power up sometimes, but if I unplug the unit for a period of time it will come back on.


I replaced my thermistor heat sensor in the back and it began to work immediately, then after 4 or 5 loads it repeated the same problem. The next time I got it to run I made sure to run it only at 3/4 temperature or lower and was able to keep running all day. Is there something I am missing with this fix? David

I have a GE Profile Harmony Dryer DPGT750. The machine makes a loud, almost grinding noise when the dryer is operating. It also sounds almost as though the drum is out of balance. It is more noticeable...

Marty, you need to remove the front cover on these and most dryers by removing lower front kick panel screws, then remove the front cover and then you access the top cover screws to remove top cover then you can access th drum belt

How do you remove the back plate of a GE profile Harmony. I have the screws out, the top off. Does the back plate slide up? Do the sides have to come off with the back? Or what?Please. Thanks


the back plate does not come off.
to get to the motors, belt, sensors...
remove the screws to the inner top cover(under outer cover) and the plastic strips- slide strips front or back to remove.
remove the screws to the front panel- 2 top front, 4 inside door.
as you pull the front off, unhook the light and the door switch
remove the scres to the front drum plate.
reach under drum and unhook belt-take note how it goes around motor and tensioner.
lift drum out and observe everything else.

Dryer not heating


Your heating element is probably blown. It's not easy to replace it, but give it a try and stick with it. You can do it. Open the dryer door and look upward. You should see the screws holding the top front in place. The back usually slides out,or has two screws, one on each side on a piece of metal sort of like a hinge. Take off top and front, and then remove the drum. You will see the long round element in the rear. It looks like a long spring. Do not take the spring loose from the housing. The element comes with a new spring assembled to the new housing.. There are also several small thermistors in there that look about the size of a quarter. They should all be "closed" so that current can pass thru. Some thermistors look different. They look like the sharpened end of a pencil and are about an inch or less long. Pointed at one end and a wire coming out of each end. Replace this before replacing element. Or if you have a small volt/ohm meter, measure the ohms of the element. They should be quite low-----------300 ohms or less--------probablyi much less. If "open", then the element is bad. keever
