GE Gas Dryer wont run

The dryer has been squeeking for a few weeks but other than that running fine. After drying two loads today it sudenly stopped working. Power is ok, the light is on when I open the door and when I attempt to turn the knob to "start" there is a slight buzzing that makes it sound like it wants to start but doesn't.

You had a loose belt. Now you have a broken belt. You can buy a new belt at most hardware stores including Lowes & HD.

They are fairly easy if you are handy.

Remove cover, look for diagram showing belt alighnment (if equiped, some are so simple they don't need one) remove shredded belt and install new.

Dont forget to unplug it first.

Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Taking a ge dryer apart to replace worn belt. the dryer works fine with light load but squeeks with medium to heavy load. drying time is fine.


you will need to replace the drum glides near the front of the drum,just behind the door,which will require you to remove the front panel to access the glide unit,there is a gold and a green glide,you will need to get the right one after disassembly

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My GE Dryer model DWSR483EA1ww will not stop & doesn't dry quick


first thing you should do is check the flow of your vent, a clogged vent can cause all your problems check it outside while the unit is running you should get really good flow compare it to the flow of the dryer with the vent hose off the dryer completly. they should be fairly close or just run it with out the vent hooked up to the vent if you have an electric but not with a gas dryer

GE DBXR463GB Gas Dryer is squeaking loudly when it runs


one of 2 things can be wrong. Back bearing if bad will sound like a bird chirpping, front bearing glide will be more constant squeek. both need to be fixed by experienced tech.
