Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Good Morning out there, I have a GE front loaded dryer and the dryer was working fine and now it will not get going, The drum will not turn, I opened the door, pressed the light button, turned on the machine and helped the drum along. Is there something stuck in the drum? or is there anything I can do to fix this. My laundry pile is quite high, is it safe to use the dryer with the assistance method?

You don't say how old the unit is or how heavily loaded it is? Check the belt first. You can't adjust the tension, all you can do is replace it.

Why will my dryer not start, but makes a clicking sound?


If the motor runs and the drum doesn't turn the belt may be worn or broken...or you may have a faulty idler

No high heat in dryer


This type of dryer has 2 rows of elements. If one is out then you will not have high heat.


Basically to get into ge dryers your start by popping the top then removing the front. Then the drum comes out.

I have a DBXR453EA dryer which I cannot find on your list. When the dryer is in use it sounds like a bearing might be going bad or t roler is going bad. I tried to open the side up, but I cannot figure...


This dryer uses nylon slides to support the drum in the front. These are very cheap ($5) and not too difficult to replace.

The side panels do not come off on a front-loading GE.

Unplug the dryer.

Remove the screws along the top of the door opening and lift the top upward. Old machines have clips.

Remove the screws on the sides that are about 6" from the floor When these are removed, the panel is loose and may fall, so hold on to it). The front panel (door and all) should be free. You may find it easier to disconnect the wiring to free the panel entirely; be careful not to damage the connectors.

You should now be looking at the drum. Under the drum, in the front, are two little pieces of nylon. These are the slides. If your dryer doesn't have these, it uses a drum support bearing, a large white plastic piece that is about $25.

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

Taking a ge dryer apart to replace worn belt. the dryer works fine with light load but squeeks with medium to heavy load. drying time is fine.


you will need to replace the drum glides near the front of the drum,just behind the door,which will require you to remove the front panel to access the glide unit,there is a gold and a green glide,you will need to get the right one after disassembly

I have a loud squeaking noise from a GE electric dryer drum..


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
I am not sure what plastic part you have, but there should be no small plastic parts in your dryer drum or at least not the ones I have worked on before.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
