They sent out a GE tech and mine had a huge dent in the bottom back side which had rubbed off a lot of that rubber 'belt'. Lowe's is replacing the dryer.

Did you know that the Harmony washer is a magnetron? The GE tech said it has a giant magnet in it that spins causing the electricity generated to spin it. Love my washer!

I was having a similar problem but my dryer was about 5 years old. There are a couple of rubbery, sticky belts that wrap around the dryer drum. One of mine had come off the drum and was balled up, wedged between the drum and the dryer wall. It wanted to spin, but this "belt" was keeping it from doing so. I'm not sure why or how it happened, but I removed the portion that was gummed up and now it works fine.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

GE DPSR483EA Electric Dryer was making a scraping sound when operating, now a felt like belt has come out on the inside of the dryer. what do i do? Kris Long


The problem is something got between the drum and the felt seal between the drum and the front of the machine. You will have to pull the front off and find out what caused the felt to come out and then put the felt back in place and put the front back on.

Dryer won't start spining the drum


The belt is the likely culprit, you have to look inside to see if it is the belt

Ge dryer started making a loud rubbing sound


Sounds Like the drum is scraping. You can remove the drum and inspect the felt bearing/gasket for damage or a coin or screw that got lodged in it. You will need to remove Top and front in order to remove drum Carefully note the routing of the belt near the moter.

ASSISTANCE WITH MY GE-DBXR463EB1WW


two possibilities come to mind. one) the drum bearing is shot! second) the drum rides on two felt and plastic "bearings" at the front of the dryer. these felts might be completely worn causing the drum to flop around.
