Question about GE DBXR463GB Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer won't stay hot....

I have a GE DBXR463GD1WW that is about 4-1/2 years old. I have never had a problem until now. When the dryer first starts up it gets hot for about 2-4 minutes. After that it cools down and does not heat up again unless you restart it. Any ideas or help will be much appreciated!!

GE dryer dwsr463eg7ww timer isn't working and doesnt heat up

The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

The igniter heats the thermocouple which, in turn, opens the gas valve. The igniter could be on its way to failure because it is not staying energized long enough to heat the thermocouple. The thermocouple could be defective as well.

My dryer stays hot

Hello, I'm going to assume this is a Electric dryer since you did not mention :) Ok your problem is with your heating coil. Basically what has happend is the coil has broken and the end that is wired strait to the electric supply is touching the chassis of where the heater is located, You should replace the heating coil and this will solve your problem :) You have a nice day and if there is anything else i can help you with please feel free to comment again. Thanks for using Fixya!! Mike

Ge dryer staying hot even when it's off

This could be a stuck main timer control or thermostat. I recommend you un-plug the dryer until the problem is located. You don't want to start a fire or do more damage.
