Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
More than likely if you say you had problems with the switch before than you might have a bad starting switch, but check to see if the start switch is getting power from the timer if is getting power from the timer check the "safety fuse" located in the heater area. This "safety fuse" is designed to cut power off to the motor if the dryer overheats above a "safe" level (On dryers made after January 1, 1996 in accordance with U.L. and C.P.S.C. standards). If the "safety-fuse" is good than check the "start" circut of the motor.If there IS POWER (115 volts) going into the "start" circut of the motor ,but the motor won't "run" than the motor needs to be replaced.
Plus check to see if the timer hasn't "shorted out" as well.
