Question about GE Dryers

No heat in dryer

I repaced the guides and the drum bearing in my GE front loading dryer Model # DJSR473ET2WW. It doesn't squeak anymore but now there is no heat. The heat was fine before and I was careful not to damage the the element. I did have to dicconnect two yellow wires to get to the rear of the element housing to repace the bearing. Any thoughts?

Make sure all the wires were replaced correctly and check the circuit breaker two control an electric dryer one for go one for heat. if all the wires were not replaced correctly you may have tripped one or it may have caused the prolem without tripping one . I'd start with the wires.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Well ya never mention in your question what brand you have but a GE or Hotpoint dryer has a small plastic insert that wears thin over time. It begins to do a squeak squeak squeak type of noise.And that noise is intermittent, on a Frigidaire model the noise would start out low and gradually get worse. The bearing sometimes gets so bad it gets chopped off and the tub falls into the heating element.

The squeak is actually the rear bearing WE3X75.

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

Front load dryer make a horrid squeaking sound as it goes around. Heat's great - it just squeaks!


There are nylon or cloth type guide bushings(bearings) at the front of the drum which may be worn. The drum rides on these to keep it suppurted. You can replace from retailer and or try to lubricate with silicone spray.

Dryer drum causing squeak


Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

GE Profile Dryer Model # DPSR473EWOWW SQUEAKING


If the squeaking has been going on for only a short time, you may be able to get by with only replacing the rear drum bearing, but if it has been going on for some time you should replace the drum bearing kit part # WE25M40. Also be sure to check that the front drum slides are ok, especially the one on the left side of the front drum support, as this one wears out faster. Drum slides #
WE1M481 and
WE1M333 and if front support frame is worn so that there is nothing left to hook the slides into you would need a
WE3M26.

Dryer squeak


Your issue is as follows;
"My G. E. dryer make squeaking noise when the drum is turning. However, it only during so, when load with cloths."

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to access my database to provide you with exacting information. You did not provide a valid model number, however, I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search.

My Solution is:
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Following the link below will provide some information on G.E. dryers.
http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=784658&PPStack=1

Following the link below shows disassembly procedures for most G.E. models.
http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_20.asp

Rear drum bearing: Most common failure Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
