Question about GE Profile Wizard DPSE592EAWW Electric Dryer

GE profile model # DPSQ475ETWW or ET0WW drum belt slipping

Yesterday I took my dryer appart because it was not heating. I found the heating coil was broken. I bought a re-string kit, put it back together and now it works but sometimes when starting up with medium sized load of wet close the belt slips. I'm not sure if the cork or rubber side of the belt should be facing the drum.

Dryer doesn't spin unless assisted by hand .element does work. belt problem? model profile 6 cycle dpxh46eaiww


in most cases its the motor as the dryer has such a heavy load to tumble over time 5-7 yrs it starts to burn the coil on the motor leaving it too weak to rotate the barrel if you replace the motor it will work fine. i dont beleve its the belt as they have very strong tension arms and will break before they atart to slip


best of luck

How to replace ge dryer heating element


you will need to remove the drum for this one.  once it is out, the element is mounted on the back of the unit.  not a hard repair, just lay out the parts as you take it apart to give you some order as you re-assemble it.

GE washer squeaking


Make sure the felt on the rim of the drum is secure and the plastic glides that the drum sits on are not worn down.

How do i oil the belts? The dryer squeaks every time its turned on?


You don't oil the belts on a dryer. This will cause the belt to slip on the motor shaft and/or drum. Oil permiated into the metal of the dryer drum can ruin it causing any replacement belt to slip as well.

If the dryer is squealing, you probably need to lubricate the idler pulley wheel at the axle point (also known as a tension pulley). If this is a GE model they usually have drum slides and a drum bearing that support the front of the dryer drum as well. When they wear down, they begin to make noise. The drum slides are made of teflon and not only help support the drum, but ensures it turns smoothy. You may need to replace both the drum slides and the drum bearing.

If the model number is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Drum Bearing - WE3M26
Drum Slide - WE1M481 (Blue), WE1M333 (White)

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Squeeks loadly when running


The drum belt is slipping or a support wheel bearing is worn.  Spray some belt dressing on the belt or replace the belt.  Lubricate the wheel bearing or replace it.  It is also possible that the seal between the drum and the housing (at the back) is worn and the drum is rubbing metal-to-metal on the housing.

GE Profile Dryer (Not a Harmony)


Procedure is much the same, just easier. Don't take belt off. Pull drum straight forward six inches or so and replace the hat shaped teflon drum bearing.
