Check the thermal fuse mounted on the exhaust duct of the dryer. Rear panel must be removed. Thermal fuse has 2 wires and is white.
If you connect the wires together and the drywer runs then you will need to replace the fuse which is non resettable. Part number is 3392519.

Dryer runs but does not heat. It runs continually


If your dryer never quits on its own, then your main selection switch may be bad. Even if the clothes don't dry, the timer should still only run to the end of the cycle and then stop. The problem with the lack of heat could also be caused by a bad timer switch, but that is rare. Usually it is caused by a bad igniter/heat sensor unit. Sometimes you can use a piece of sandpaper and clean the carbon off of the sensor and then it will sense heat when the pilot flame starts, then it will let the gas valve send gas to the main burner. The heat sensor it the part that is in the flame of the pilot light.

Dryer will not start. I have power because the inside light comes on . The timer works .


Make sure the motor is not running when you try to turn the dryer on, they are very quite.
If the motor is running then your problem is a broken belt, or the belt has slippled off the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
If the motor is not running then the problem could be the start switch or the timer switch even tho it is running they can have bad contacts.

GE Profile dpsr473ewoww timer doesn't work and heat level is low


We should address the heat problem first. If your dryer complaint is "heat seems low" or taking "too long to heat", this is commonly confused for other problems. When in fact, you may really have a "ventillation problem". Do you feel (with hand) alot of hot air pressure coming out the back of the dryer or house vent-line (for dryer)?

I would disconnect and clean the dryer exhaust vent/duct (at wall and machine). Then, while leaving the vent-line disconnected temporaily, test and run your dryer. You may see an signficant improvement.

Does it heat up better?
Do you feel alot of hot air and pressure coming out the back of the dryer?
When connected; do you feel alot of hot air pressure coming out of your house dryer vent?
