Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
Hello, The dryer will not start, acts as though not pulgged in. The dryer is 2 yrs old. began operating erraticly, wife said it ran for 2 mins. was hot, then shut off. Checked the vent...clean, the exhaust vent was clogged due to lint getting past the screen unit. replaced vent hose. jumpered two of the thermostats, still didn't run. Will not start, nothing happens. Did not check the third thermostat/fuse because it has 4 wires. Not sure what to do. 2 blue and 2 white on the thermostat. How do I check this and is there anything else to check? I think it is associated with the over heating due to a restricted vent, but what to do? House circuit breaker is set, never tripped. I will check for curent at the 240 volt plug. That's the end of my knowledge. Thanks,
You may have a bad timer: Also, there may be a separate thermal fuse for the motor, usually an inch long white plastic one attached to the blower housing.

These dryers are bad for burning off wires at the motor - visual check there, as well as the door switch will stop the dryer from running. The thermostats you are looking at only control the heat - not the motor. Also like to burn off wires at the main terminal block where the main 240 volt cable attaches to the dryer.
