GE DVLR223 Not Heating--Is there a reset?

Hello,

My GE Dryer is not heating. Had this problem before and according to my wife a service tech came and basically just reset something inside the dryer. Is this possible? Is there a reset for the thermostat or heating element? The tech stated that the ventilation was clogged a bit and this was the reason for the dryer not heating. Thank you for any input you may have.

Thanks,

There is no reset. What he did was probably replace the thermal fuse. Why did he not clean it out for ya? Anyway when the thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer or the heat won't work. If you can open the dryer up by removing the front panel, you can test your thermal fuse for continuity. If none replace it. While you have the front off undo your belt and remove the 3 screws that secure the rear of the drum (inside drum in middle at back) pull drum out and make sure heat element is not broken. Here is a site for your dryer check it out. www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-dvlr223-%3d%3d&z=100 Good Luck

1 Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
2 Remove the screws located around the edges of the back panel of the DVLR223 dryer. Move the back panel away from the cabinet.
3 Push the idler pulley away from the belt to loosen the belt tension. Remove the screws on the panel behind the dryer drum. Remove the panel.
4 Remove the four screws located on the underside of the top panel. Lift the top panel off of the cabinet.
5 Lift the drum up through the top of the cabinet and set it aside.
6 Unplug the electrical wires connected to the heating element assembly. Remove the old heating element from the DVLR223.
7 Insert the new heating element where the old one was previously located. Plug the electrical wires into the heating element assembly.
8 Replace the drum inside the dryer cabinet. Replace the top panel and the four screws that go on the underside of it.
9 Replace the panel behind the drum. Replace the screws that hold it in position.
10 Reposition the back panel onto the DVLR223. Replace the sheet metal screws around the perimeter of the back panel.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

Dryer only heats on the highest heat setting


Some electric dryers have two heating elements. You probably have one bad heater and one good heater.

Dryer is taking way longer to dry than normal


Does it feel warm to the touch? (you did not make mention of that) If not then it more than likely is not heating at all and there could be a number of reasons why it does not heat.
1. Open heating element
2. Open thermostat
3. Defectrive motor switch
4. Damaged wiring
5. Defective heat control switch
6. Defective timer.
7. One of the 2 power circuit breakers is partially tripped. (turn them off and back on again to reset them)
If it is warm to the touch then check around the lint filter for lint buildup. Also go outside and check the dryer vent flapper where it exits your home for obstructions. Aditionaally check the vent tubing itself for kinks or obstructions. You may have to remove the vent hose from the dryer to check the tubing.
