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.

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

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.

GE DSXH43EAWW dryer stopped working mid cycle


unplug it,take it apart and check it out,you could have snapped the belt,there's a belt switch so if the belt breaks the dryer won't start,or if you haven't taken the dryer apart and cleaned it out and also the vent line you could have popped one of the t-stats,only way to tell is by checking them with a meter.the dyer should be cleaned out once a year ,if not the air can't move freely and one of the t-stats will pop as a safety,the dryer will run to hot and take out the thermal fuse or the high limit t-stat,if it's been taking longer to dry the clothes or if you see lint stuck to the bottom of the dryer door these are signs of bad air movement and the dryer and vent line needs to be cleaned out.

My dryer is taking too many times to dry my clothes!


hello tmivie,
When you say you took the dryer apart and cleaned out all the lint, did you also check the vent system all the way to the outside and at the end where the duct exits your house? If you are getting heat and limited or restrictive air flow, your drying time will be excessive.. There may be other problems such as the blower itself isn't functioning properly to move the air out.. Since your dryer is electric, you can detach the vent line from the dryed and turn it on.. feel the exhaust flow to make sure it is pretty robust then reattach the vent and check for about the same flow at the exit point of your duct system. Let me know if that solves your problem or not so we can look at other ideas..
Regards,
Rick

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...
