G. E. Electric Dryer - on drying rotation making noise

I have a general electric electric dryer (spacesaver 120 volt) it is now making noise when in dryer rotation. I took the rtop off and saw the drum to be in tact and there was ONE (1) thin rubber gasket surrounding the drum. Is something stuck somewhere or is the dryer some how off balance or need to be tightened and if so how to tighten >

I have a imperial whirlpool dryer. I thought it was electric, it has gas hook up and a electric plug as well , can it be bothZ?

Yes, it will be both. A straight electrical dryer is hooked up to 220 volts of electricity and uses that voltage to run both the motor and the heater. In a gas dryer, you only need 120 volts to run the motor and run the igniter for the gas, which provides the heat to dry your clothes. Hope this helps!

Do they make 110v dryers?

all gas dryers are 120 volt,and some electric dryers too,i've worked on two elecric 120 volt dryers and they take forever to dry clothes,any lint buildup slows down drying time even more,you'd be better off just to have an electrician come in and run a 240 line for the dryer and it should have it's own line anyway

How do you know if it is a gas or an electric dryer

A gas dryer has a small, round, gas inlet port located in the lower rear of the machine, adjacent to the exhaust port. Most electric dryers have a large, 3 prong, 240 volt, electric plug, as the source
of power, although some lower scale units use 120 volts to dry and have no gas inlet port located
in the rear of the dryer..
I hope I was able to answer your question satisfactorially if so, please provide some feedback.

My dryer still rotates but it does not blow hot air and it contineously rotates. The only way it will stop is if I open the door.

first check for 240 volts at the dryer if it has an electric heating element,if you lose 1 leg of the 240 volts that leaves you with only 120 volts and with both your problems this is what it sounds like your problem is,because the motor is on one leg(120volts) the timer is on the other(120volt)leg and the element is on both legs at 240volts,so you lose 1 leg your timer or motor would qwuit and the heating element wont heat either

My electric Whirlpool clothes dryer (model #LER 5636EQ3) about 9 years old, will not dry a load of clothes in just one cycle. I have to dry some things 2 or 3 times before the clothes are dry. I clean out...

Check your electrical power going to the dryer at where you plug the plug in at the receptical. and make sure you have 120 volts on each leg, it sounds like you may have one leg with 120 volt and the other leg with no voltage. I hope this helped. Please rate me, Thanks

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.

Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!

My dryer doesn't run

If the dryer doesn't start or make any noise: 1) Be sure it is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don?t plug into standard 120-volt receptacles?they operate on 240 volts. Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected. 2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord. 4) Open the door and check the door switch. Press and release it: it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service. 5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic parts may be faulty. Call a service person.
