Question about GE Dryers
Is there an internal fuse or something. It is about 15 years old and is the heavy duty front loading model. End of cycle buzzer will sound but nothing else happens. Dryer doesn't get a lot of use.
Soubnds like the Start capasitor or start winding inside of the motor if it has no capasitor are going out .Replace capasitor , if it has one or replace motor if it does not. The other , less likely posibility is that the starter switch is going out. you can carefully jump out the switch with a wire from the back, when it is not working to see if it is the switch. If it has that start capasitor i talked of they can be tested with an ohm meter. The values are printed on them. The mortor itself can also be tested with an ohm meter,but if you look at it closely or try to spin it by hand I am fairly sure you will see that it has a problem already.
