Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer won't turn on all of a sudden. confirmed power is okay.

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.

Vibration


With the age of the machine, although Speed Queen's are built like a tank, the suspension systems are one of the most worked systems on a clothes washer,so, that being said, I would check all related parts of the suspension system, springs,pivot,etc,.these parts do get tired, think of the amount of loads of clothes that you have run through the washer over those 15 years.

Good Luck !

Error E1


dear customer,
most of the time the timers of dryers aren't faulty even though the dryer doesn't run properly in timmed mode. dryer timers have small motors on the back. The motor rotates gears and cams that open and close switch contacts that control the loads in your dryer. A load is something that does work like a motor, heater, light bulb or end of the cycle buzzer. When the timer is manufactured the amount of time each set of contacts will be closed is built in by the timer cams and gears.so i recommend yu to check the follwoing
  • Test the moisture sensor
  • Test the thermostats
  • Test the heating element
  • and finally the timer device.
hope you find this useful. thank you.

Turn off buzzer


Assuming you mean the end of cycle alert. The only way to do this is to follow the wiring diagram and install a switch to cut it off.
