Question about GE DVLR223 Dryers
My GE DVLR223ET1WW electric dryer takes a long time to dry my clothes. I checked the voltage at the receptacle and I was getting 120VAC, is it supposed to be 240VAC? The voltage at the end of the power cord to the dryer is 120VAC at L1, 0V at L2 and 0V at the ground wire. From what I've read L2 is also supposed to be 120VAC, but that's only possible if I'm getting 220VAC from the receptacle. Please help!
If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, you're supposed to read 120VAC at both L1 and L2. With the cord UNPLUGGED, check the voltage across L1 and l2 at the wall receptacle. You should read a cumulative of 220-240VAC. If you're only getting 120VAC, the problem is at your receptacle, which would explain why the dryer is not heating. The heating circuits and timer require 220VAC, while the drive motor only requires 120VAC. If the power at the receptacle is good, leave the dryer unplugged and check the continuity of the power cord from the end of the plug at L2 to the terminal block at the back of the dryer. You should read a short or 0 ohms. If the continuity of the plug is good, the problem may be a loose connection at the terminal block or a broken wire. If the continuity is bad (open), then it looks like you may have a bad power cord. Please post back if you have questions. I hope this helps you.
