Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
Here's one for the history books!! I replaced the rear bearing since the dryer was making an awful squeaking noise. Unfortunately, I unplugged the washer instead of the dryer before working on it. I actually got zapped when I accidentally touched the element, then for some reason, perhaps I hit the element again, but a few sparks flew and one side of the element glowed orange for several seconds then stopped. I went on and finished the work and fixed the noise problem, but now the dryer is not heating. Is it likely I trashed the element? I guess that's why the manuals say to call a trained professional. Basic safety tip....unplug the appliance before digging into it!!! Anyway, thanks for the help!!
Hello coylejm, Thank goodness, 220v has a BAD reputation. Your hunch is correct. To confirm use a DVM to check the heating elements conductivity. Open one terminal of the element and measure ohms of the terminal. A very unlickley chance you damaged the control box. Merry Christmas.
