Question about GE Profile Wizard DPSE592EAWW Electric Dryer

I have a GE Profile DPSQ475ETWW. It wasn't heating so I took it appart found two breaks in the heating element so I bought a re-string kit... put it back together and now it works but I'm having a problem with the drum belt slipping. not sure if the cork or rubber side of the belt should be facing the drum.

The rib side goes on the motor pulley which should have the same amount of grooves as the belt,the flat side(no grooves) goes on the idler pulley and from install is pretty much forward so the belt isn't twisted anyplace

GE profile dryer,Runs fine but no heat

need to have the heat element checked with a multimeter and visually if u can and look for burns and corrosion and breaking of the wire connections. Also have the thermostats checked, Im assuming its electric and not gas? the thermal cut off may be bad and the hi-lo thermostat, these can shut heat off from the dryer. Ive replaced the element on my G.E profile and it wasn't all that hard rather simple.

No heat in dryer, sparks coming from heater

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. The symptom you describe is typical of a broken heating element. The heating element on GE models comes as an assembly. Item 1215 of this link:

Your dryer has a single element and I do not know of a single element "re-string" element kit for the single element dryers. You may be able to contact a local appliance parts & repair source to find the roughly $40.00 element only replacement part. As far as I know the "element only" has been dis-continued. Sadly this reults in a substantial cost to the consumer to purchase the whole assembly at $160 - $172.00. There may be new old stocks still on the shelf somewhere for the element only. I would at least make a few local appliance repair parts calls before ordering the assembly.
Just doing the math as to what you may expect to have the dryer repaired by a technician.
Service call $50 - 75.00
Labor $100.00 (Average)
Part: $160.00 + shipping / tax
Your looking at nearly a $300.00 repair on the low end of costs and they only go up from there. (Just being VERY honest)
The can be additional problems that are found like a belt, idler, drum guide, or a blower fan. Often elements fail due to poor airflow that is caused by either blocked air flow or a broken blower fan.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Heating element. How about just replacing the coil?

Location of element how do i remove it from the front or back

the element is behind the drum,you must first remove the screws holding the front panel on at the floor area,then lift forward and up like a car hood,then remove top cover screws underneath top cover and lift up like a car hood and secure in upright position as not to tear wire harness,then remove the drum belt and pull drum out of unit,the element can now be accessed and you can order an element re-string kit usually about $25 and re-string the new heating coil yourself

I have a GE profile 3 years old. It won't heat

There are many things that can cause a no heat symptom in an electric dryer, here is a list of possible causes in order of likelihood or ease of access.

1. An open fuse/breaker in the house fuse panel.
There are 2 fuses or breakers for the dryer, both must be good in order for the dryer to function properly. If one is open, it is possible for the dryer to run but not generate heat. In the case of breakers, try resetting them as sometimes one of the two can open but not physically tip the mechanical lever.

2. An open thermal fuse in the dryer.
Some models use a thermal safety limiter or thermal fuse which could open the circuit to the heat element. These are used to prevent a runaway or over heat condition and are often found mounted to the blower or heater element housing (see the links below for examples). These devices are a fairly current development and may not be found on very old dryers.

Note: If this is the cause of your current problem (pardon the pun), I strongly suggest you check the vent for obstructions and ensure its length meets the manufacturers recommended limitations, the shorted the better. Failure of this part could be the first indication of a potential fire hazard in the dryer!

3. The element coil is burnt out.
Dryer elements are bare wires coiled like springs, when they fail the wire will break opening the circuit. This breakage could be intermittent, only opening as the element expands as it heats. Sometimes the element coil has to be physically checked for breakages, especially where the coil goes through ceramic insulator which could hide a breakage from plain view. Depending on the brand and style, the replacement element may be just the coiled wire that has to be mounted into the original element housing. On other models the element assembly comes already mounted on a frame that then in installed into the element housing or directly into the dryer. Whichever the case, the element coil has to be replaced not just joined together using connectors.

4. A burnt wire or wire connector. Replace the burnt wire connector and/or wire and inspect the component terminal it was attached to. If any sign of charring or discoloration are visible on the component's terminal or repeated failures occur at that same location, replace the component the terminal is part of. Such items can include the main power junction terminal block (very common), thermodiscs (thermostats), heat selector switch, centrifugal switch (on the motor) or the timer.

GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer not heating up

Check the air flow from the vent-if there is no air or very weak air flow, it is the blower motor. It is not getting up to speed or not spinning at all. Try this:
Press "Home"
Press "Help"
Simultaneously press and hold down BOTH
"My Cycles" and "Back"
After a few seconds the dryer will enter service mode and report any problems.

GE Harmony electric dryer model DPGT750EC1PL- very little heat - small rattle - takes hours to dry load of laundry... any ideas?

Check the following to address this issue.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Hello, My GE Profile dryer model DPXR47EW0WW serial TV771164A has stopped heating. What should I be checking? Thanks, Bob

open it up - take the drum out - the heating element is there - check the wire for breaks - then there are three fuses - if the heating element does not have any breaks - take the fuses to a parts store and have them checked.
