    i need to know how to access the lint "tunnel" inside the dryer. there is a tunnel that starts under the removable lint filter. this tunnel seems to lead under the dryer drum, toward the back of the dryer. i want to clean it out and need some help, either to snake it, or remove the outside panel and vacume it. i tried to remove the panel, but the screws that seem to hold it in place will not budge. any idea how to clean the lint tunnel?

SOURCE: dryer takes more than one cycle to dry clothes

Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.

The sensor in the filter "PATH" is actually located past the screen. It measures the amount of air flow passing through the exhaust cavity going outside. My suggestion is to clean the airflow duct from right past the lint filter all the way out side. It is recommended that this be done once a year for optimal performance. If this doesn't work, let me know.

SOURCE: GE Profile Dryer - sensor problem

When I pull up the exploded view of your model, it does not show an individual moisture sensor, but is does show disconnect plug(s) for it. I can only assume that the sensor bars are an intrical part of one of the front bulkhead components. That all being said, the most common reason for your symptoms is when people use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, the sheets leave a waxy type coating on the silver sensor bars inside the drum, near the air inlet to the lint filter. If you clean those two (usually about 4 inch long x about 1/4 inch wide) metal bars off, they will be able to detect the moisture level of the clothing again, and your dryer will work on auto dry again.

SOURCE: How to get the front panel off GE Profile Harmony

Here's a simple overview of what you have to do:

You actually don't remove the back sir, but that's okay, that's a common misconception for this model dryer. The proper way to disassemble this particular dryer is you start with the top. You have to start with the removal of the control panel, then the top of the dryer. What I would consider the top cover. Then you'll have to remove two plastic brackets. Then you have to remove the front. There's two aluminum brackets in each corner, remove those. Open the door and there'll be two more screws to remove on each side. You have to lift the front just a little and then pull towards you. I forgot to mention, before that part, you'll need to ensure you are disconnecting the electrical wiring. There's almost no chance of connecting the wrong ones even if you forget. GE made this part novice proof. Once you get the front removed, you'll see the lint/trap. There's a couple of screws on either side of the aluminum housing. Not much to it. Let me know if there's anything I can clarify further. Have fun!

You robably have a lot of stuff that is smoked. For your own safety and piece of mind, you should have this vehicle looked at by a professional. You do want these air bags to work if necessary, right?

I'm sorry ou have this problem. Please have a pro take a look see.

Window won't roll up or down


The internet is a great place to get stuff like that cheap -(Google Search "Honda parts") -- Most Later model Hondas have power windows, so I bet it is hard to find -- Advance and AutoZone both have a section of replacement parts that are called "Oops" - (Red and white boxes, w/black letters) and they supply alot of the easily broken parts that are harder to find... - Lastly if no other choice, a Honda dealer would have it for sure (In the correct color as well - the "Oops" parts usually come only in black), but, Honda is usually really proud of their stuff - they either have it or can get it - That's what I'd recommend...Hope that helps...DD
