GE spacemaker dryer won't start

My GE spacemaker dryer won't start. I don't think it is the belt because it does not have a burning smell.

    Mine will start for 1 second and then stop. The lights then start to flash and it turns off.  Any recommendations?

Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

Burned rubber smell after replacing motor coupler, otherwise runs


The most common cause for the coupler failing is a bad gearcase. The machine should go through a neutral drain before the spin if it doesn't drain the water first it over works the motor trying to spin a full tub. No belt on this one, odor could be from the motor or the coupler starting to shred again.

I have a used GE DCLR333ETOAA model and last time was used it work for few mins. but smell like burn and then stop working. What you think it is?


If the machine quit and won't restart, I would be looking at the drum belt. Some machines will not start if the belt is broken. If the smell you are getting is more electrtical than a rubber smell you need to be checking the thermostats and make sure the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside is not full of lint because the safety thermostat will shut the dryer down so it doesn't overheat.

My ge stackable smells like it is burning. How do I fix this?


Well, you do not mention which machine causes the smell. My concern is fire hazzard, be sure to check the dryer hose system, and DO NOT USE plactic vent hose, major fire hazzard, they make the same thing in metal and it works better....

hello if the belt is broken quite easy to put back on .take the back off you should see the belt if it has snaped or just come off .at the bottom of the washer you should see the motor at the back of the motor you should see 2 nuts this holds the motor on get a felt tip pen and mark the 2 nuts where they are fixed so you know where to tighten back on . get spanner and loosen the 2 nuts the motor should drop down put the belt back on and tighten up good luck
