My GE Dryer Model #DJXR433EG1WW will not turn on. It will not turn on and the dials don't turn right.


It sounds like your door switch is not closed. This switch has to be closed in order for power to be available at the start button. Open your door and manually push the button in and then carefully push your start button provided you have turned the timer on. If you are handy you can by pass and jumper out the door switch. The other possibility is if you can hear the motor quietly start when you push the start button your belt may have come off the pulley and the motor is just spinning.

its not the timer its your thermal fuse located in the back of the dryer behind the panel if not there it will be in the front at the bottom behind that panel. Its usually placed on the vent outlet housing.

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

Dryer won't start. Door is fully closed, I checked the circuit breaker, the lint catch is fully in place. set timer and push start, but nothing happens


You can check the door switch...its a small lever like button that the door pushes inward when closed...with the door open press it softly and listen for a click...if you have a light inside the drum it should go out when you press the switch..If its not that.. it could be a the timer switch/dial and those could cost upward of a $100...these part can found with any local repair shop/person Good Luck

Dryer wont start


http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208522243.pdf

if possible, with the door open, push the limit switch the door normally hits to let the drier know the door is shut. That switch may be bad.

Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked...


Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!
