DPSR475EWOWW GE Dryer

I have a DPSR475EWOWW GE Dryer that I am working on. I took the 3 screws out of the back deflector heat and now am having trouble putting them back in. I can't find my owners manual and need help. Thank you in advance for your input.

Don, the drum on this model rotates on a bearing in back. This is most likely where the sqeeling is comming from. You will have to service this from the front. Should be 2 screws just above the door on each side. Remove them and the top will lift up. Slide the top off forward. Once the top is off, you will see a couple of screws holding the the front panel and door assy. on. One on each side inside front panel. Unplug the door harness and remove the front panel and door. Undo the belt and the drum should pull straight out. Watch out not to get the belt hung on the motor. Now you will see the rear bearing and shaft bracket that the drum rides on. It may need to be replaced or just lubed up real good. Catriver.

My GE electric dryer has been making a loud rattling and squeaking noise. Now it is taking a lot longer to dry the clothes. Model # DBSR453EB2WN

As you can see in the diagram the heating element is on the back side of the deflector plate. I would WAG that something got past the deflector and is rattling around between the heater assembly and deflector plate. OR something has come loose and is doing the same thing in that area of the machine. When you have it opened up you should also check the bearing and replace if there is any wooble in it and if not lubricate thoroughly.

Dryer is not drying the clothes


I had the same problem that I just fixed. I removed the serial cable weeks ago. Unplugged and plugged cord to reset computer glitches. If this does not work. UNPLUG cord, remove the terminal block cover for cord connections. With a AC volt meter and plastic kitchen gloves, plug in, turn on dryer and check voltage. Red to Black 240+/- 6 volts. Those terminals to center 120+/- 3 volts. UNPLUG CORD if good voltage. With dryer de-energized you won't need kitchen gloves. Next take out 4 screws that hold Back-splash, lift and tilt forward. There is a wiring diagram inside. Plug and unplug each cord one at a time. Take care to not to bend prongs. My problem was a parallel cable that had a bad connection. Unplugging it and plugging it back in was all it took to fix the problem. Good Luck.

Dryer no heating how do I get to the fuses and the heating elemet


using a wide flat screw driver pry the top up at the edges betwenn the main top and the front panel. Lay it down on it's back for this. Now look for your door switch wires and undo them. Now look inside the front panel toward the top and remove 2 attaching screws or hex screws. Lift panel at top and remove. Now undo 3 screws in middle of inside drum and pull drum out after un-doing belt. There you should find your heat element and all the thermostats and the thermal fuse should be labeled. If heat element is not broken then chances are your thermal fuse is bad replace it

Kenmore Electric Dryer Can't replace heating unit


I removed the deflector and duct from outside the house, disconnected the hose, attached the hose to the dryer, passed the hose through the wall as the dryer went back in, then reattached the hose to the duct/deflector and reinstalled the duct/deflector

DRYER TUMBLES BUT WILL NOT HEAT


If this is a gas dryer the MOST COMMON problem would be a thermal fuse usually located in the back of the dryer. you would have to remove the back panel their is only 9 screws securing it. The thermal fuse is going to be white with 2 wires and 1 screw . Unplug the dryer remove the wires from thermal fuse and put them together temporary using tape make sure metal ends make contact and they do not touch any thing else. plug dryer back in and turn on. if every thing works than replace the thermal fuse and clean out your duct

HOW TO FIX A NO HEAT ON A GE ELECTRIC DRYER OVER 10 YEAR OLD


Either one of 2 ways to get to the thermostat on a GE dryer.....

depending on your model, you will have an access point on the back of the dryer to get to the heating element which has attached to it, the thermostat.

If there isn't an access point on the rear of the unit, open the front door of the dryer and remove the 2 screws in the top of the door opening. Using a small prybar, slightly apply pressure prying up the lid. On the inside of the face of the dryer in the corners will be 2 more screws, remove those and pull the face of the dryer outwards to you to about a 45 degree angle. From there, you will be able to lift off the face. Be cautious to unplug the wires for the door switch before pulling the face all the way out. There isn't much to a 10 yr old dryer, just take your time, study the parts and put it back just as you took it apart. For the replacement thermostat or heating element look at

Good luck and let me know if there is any more trouble I can help with.
