Here you get exploded view, so that you can locate the thermostat. There are two thermostats at the back of the drum, they are numbered 505 and 507 in diagram.

Here is the diagram

To access the thermostats, remove the back panel (see diagram), and undo the belt routing.

How do you take the front panel off of a GE Profile Prodigy Dryer DPSR483 GAWW? There is a squeeking noise inside.


Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears. You have to remove the top and take 2 screws off that hold the front panel on but this is a gas appliance which requires a gas technician to legally work on it.

My GE Profile Dryer is still operating but produces loud intermitent noise as the drum rotates. What can I do to eliminate the noise?


It sounds like you may have a bad bearing in the back of the drum. That model rotates on a sort of ball and socket type mechanism. You may be able to lubricate it if the noise is just squealing/squeaking. If it is more than that, you'll probably need to replace the bearing mechanism. If you lube it, use a heavy weight lube that is rated for high heat (I've used brake caliper grease.)

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
