Question about GE DCSR483EA Electric Dryer
I have GE dryer DBVH512EFO ww. It appears the heating element is coming on as I can see the red glow, but the clothes are not getting dry. I am having to continually add time. I need to isolate the problem and want to test the thermostats and the heating element. I have replaced heating elements on older style dryers, but the heating element for this dryer is very expensive so I wanted to determine if it is a thermostat or element.
I am a huge DIYer and pretty good with electricity. I disassembled the dryer last weekend and did not detect any major lint build up. I will do almost anything to avoid calling a service repairman, but I am getting close...
Well the fact that hte heating elemnt is glowing tells me that all the thermstats are working, i would check for a blockage/restriction in the venting. looking at te diag, its possible that only 1 of the 2 coils for the heate are actually going on, check the coils for continuity( may be a small break that separates when gets hot)
