SOURCE: HOW TO FIX A NO HEAT ON A GE ELECTRIC DRYER OVER 10 YEAR OLD

Either one of 2 ways to get to the thermostat on a GE dryer.....

depending on your model, you will have an access point on the back of the dryer to get to the heating element which has attached to it, the thermostat.

If there isn't an access point on the rear of the unit, open the front door of the dryer and remove the 2 screws in the top of the door opening. Using a small prybar, slightly apply pressure prying up the lid. On the inside of the face of the dryer in the corners will be 2 more screws, remove those and pull the face of the dryer outwards to you to about a 45 degree angle. From there, you will be able to lift off the face. Be cautious to unplug the wires for the door switch before pulling the face all the way out. There isn't much to a 10 yr old dryer, just take your time, study the parts and put it back just as you took it apart. For the replacement thermostat or heating element look at

Good luck and let me know if there is any more trouble I can help with.

SOURCE: running but not heating up to dry

Does the Ignitor heat up? If not, the timer might not be telling the gas system to start.

If the ignitor is heating up, and there is no gas, it may be a wiring problem or a gas valve problem. Need more information to solve.

Next step if ignitor is working, is to check to see if voltage is being sent to the gas valve.

SOURCE: No heat - long time to dry clothes.

Hi, Is this an electric dryer? The model# shows that is it. If it is gas, you need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is a very common problem with the newer gas dryers. We have them for $27.95. Our # is 1 866 798-4375 Make sure and check the venting to the ouside and make sre that it is clean and has no kinks.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: dryer trips breaker after 10 minutes using low or high heat

Start at the source. See if your breaker is big enough to handel the load for extended periods of time. A dryer uses a large amount of amps and can wear out a breaker that is not big enough. A dryer breaker should be 50a or 60a or if it is it may just be worn out. If that's not it then you may have a bad element. This is the part that makes the heat. You have to pry the front top of the dryer up and tilt it back. The element is on the back of the drum. It's shaped like a disk with a small tab on each side to screw it down. Hope this helps. Good luck.

It just doesn't seem like my frigidaire gas affinity dryer is drying as fast as it should


Hey Car Guy,.. there are two factors that determine how fast the clothes will dry:
1- air temperature, Is the gas burner is lighting and heating the air? Just stop the dryer mid-cycle and feel the clothes - if they are hot, then the burner/heating part of the dryer is working ok.

2 - adequate air going through the dryer. This is usually where the problem lies. There is a lint filter at the dryer somewhere, accessed either where the door opens, or on the top of the dryer....there may be an additional lint filter somewhere on the exhaust duct. Check for that, and check your air flow where it exhausts outslde. See that the flappers of the backdraft damper aren't stuck closed etc.

If you have good heat and good air flow, then it's doing all it can.

Doesn't heat or dry


Hi! jroqqow
The simpilest sollution may be one of the breakers is tripped, if its a electric dryer. If its Natural Gas or Propane, it could become even more complex. Best to check the dryer vent and make sure there is adaquate air flow out this vent. Let me know some clarification, Model Name, Number, electric, gas?
