Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer stopped drying.

I have taken the dryer apart to get to the hardware. I have applied power to it and turned it on now I can see that the blower is not running and also the heating element dosn't seem to be warming up. 1st, how do I check the fuses and where are they? 2nd, if the heater is not working will that cause the blower not to run and vise versa? I could also hear a sound that sounded like a quiet little beep intermitten down near the motors.

    Thanks for that info. It seems to be somthing in the blower motor because somtimes it works and then after a little while the blower tops woking. The heater also stops when the blower stops. Must be a saftey thing.

    my dryer will run but it will not heat but the heting element is still good i dont know were to look for the fuses.

    My GE Profile Harmony dryer heats at random. It seems like it gets hot then overheats and shuts down but the drum still turns. Once things cool down everything is back to normal again. I'm lucky to get 2 loads dried at a time.



    Please send any info to amerithai444@yahoo.com that may help me solve this without a repairman. Thanks in advance!

Electric dryers are equipped with a thermal fuse or thermal cut-out. They are usually located near the heating element next to the thermostat, and typically blow when there is an overheat condition (usually caused by poor air flow attributed to clogged ducting and/or lint build-up in the dryer). The thermal fuse (or cut-out) is a one-shot type of fuse. Once it blows it is non-resettable and must be replaced. In some model dryers when the fuse trips it will only disable the heating element and the dryer drum will still rotate. However, in some dryers when the fuse trips it will also disable the drive motor. I hope this helps.

The diagnostics say there is nothing wrong with my dryer but...


Michelle, So the drum turns but no venting out the back? This model has a DC motor for the vent, but if it failed, Im surprised that you did not receive an error message. Did you run the service mode? Power on, then press the home key, then help key. Then press the my cycles and back together for 3 seconds. Any error codes should now be displayed. The more icon will be displayed if there are more than 1 error. If you still are not getting an error you can ohm out the blower motor. There should be a 10 pin harness on the inverter board under the consol. The blower motor has the approx. resistance value of 14 ohms between yellow to yellow, red to red and blue to blue. The next step would to be to do some tests on the inverter board. Let me know if you are up to that. Catriver.

Dryer won't start


Either one or 2 things happened. The move cause the lint to shift around inside the dryer and it overheated blowing the fuse. OR the new apartment's vent is blocked and caused the dryer to overheat. All maytag dryers are not the same but they all have a non resetable fuse mounted on the blower housing. When the temp exceeds 350f it melts and kills power to the motor. If the motor is not running the heat does not get power. The motor must be turning to make the cent switch power up the heater. Dryer manuals

Samsung dryer will not start. I have a Samsung DV209AE dryer. Yesterday, I turned the drum to find an item in the clothing and heard a pop. When I later tried to start the dryer, it would not start


you have to get in there the belt could have broke,if so there's a belt switch that won't let the dryer start if the belt breaks,also if the dryer hasn't been taken apart and cleaned out should be done once a year also the vent line,i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,if it's a long run remove the vent line from the back of dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,stick it into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,you'll have to read out all the t-stats to see if one of them popped,if the dryer runs to hot one of the t-stats will pop as a safety,if it's blocked with lint this will happen.

My dryer runs and heats but seems like no air is being blown. It should have some sort of a blower correct? Taking 2 cycles to get dry and vent is not clogged, but not sure about lint trap slot.


First, of course, make sure ALL the airways are clear, including the area around the lint filter, and the outside vent - lint likes to stick to the outside vent flap, so make sure you clean that off too, and that it opens and closes freely.

Here's how to get the dryer apart
http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/03/22/appliance-tip-of-the-day-encore-dryer-disassembly/

There is a blower wheel, but it's powered by the same motor and belt which turns the drum. So if your drum is turning, the blower wheel should be turning, too. If not, you may have to replace the blower wheel. Here a link showing how to do so:

I dried one load and the clothes seemed to be a little damp but try enough, when my daughter put clothes in it and pressed the button, it made a humming sound and did not want to turn, I waited a while and...


when it hums and won't start that's usually the motor,when was the last time you took the dryer apart and cleaned it?alot of people don't know that the dryer should be unplugged,taken apart and cleaned out,the vent line too,i bet if you open it up your motor is covered in lint,if the vent line is a long run you can remove it from the back of dryer and stick a leaf blower in it and blow it out to the outside,if it hasn't been done in a long time after you blow it run the dryer on air fluff and go outside and check to make sure the air is blowing out,sometimes blowing it could push all the lint up to the opening and block it,if it does you have to pull it out or get a brush and stick it into the pipe and clean the opening out,but you could have something stuck in the blower wheel if the dryer was started with clothes in it without the lint filter in it and a piece of clothing went down into the blower wheel stopping the motor from turning or the motor is bad,the dryer should be cleaned out at least once a year.

Dryer runs but no air circulating


love2fix,

First use the dryers service mode and make sure that you are getting the same information as you suspect:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

There's a 95% chance that it is your blower and your dryer should confirm that.

I just recently replaced the blower in my GE Profile Harmony as well. While I had my dryer apart, I also cleaned the heck out of it. Excellent opportunity to take your vaccum cleaner and get all of those dust bunnies out!

I purchased the blower from www.applicancepartpros.com for about $146 S&H included.

Best of luck!

Runs but there is no air flow in tub


No air flow correlates to the Blower not turning on..With power disabled, can you gain access to the blower and make sure it doesn't have anything inside it that would keep it from rotating to move air? If the blower is able to spin freely, then I would reapply power to see if the blower is getting AC to it ( Use extreme caution while working inside the dryer when you have AC applied to it) You may have a defective blower/motor assembly.

Blower fan has fluff on stuck to it. It may even be disstorted. If you are really unlucky then it's done the blower fan motor bearings as well.
