SOURCE: touch screen

As a thought you may want to re-initiate the electronics. Don't know if this can help but it might:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.
This takes you through a processes of initializing the touch screen. I have a different problem on my Harmony dryer but I've used this to check diagnositcs.

Regards,

Robert...

SOURCE: front felt drum seal on ge came off---hard to repair?

Open the dryer door. At the top of the door opening, there should be two screws holding the top of the dryer down. Remove those screws and the top will rotate up, giving you access to the drum.

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the screws from the control panel top rear.
Lift the control panel aside.
Pull the top lid forward to remove it.
Reach inside the right and left front corners to remove the screws holding the front panel to the cabinet.
Remove the door switch wires and set the front panel aside.
Your model may or may not have 2 screws holding the top lid down located inside the door opening. Open the door,get down on your knees and look up at the door opening for 2 screws.

Take off the front panel and use a little rubber cement glue to glue the arm back on. Regular glue won't work because it's not flexible and the arm will snap. Good luck!

My husband just fix my GE Dryer GFDN240WW "Start Button broke" issue. Here is what he did; He removed the control knob to access the phillp screw. Unscrewed screw and lift up on control to remove panel and unhook power supply. Then set control panel on face. Unscrewed 5 larger screws to removed black plastic panel w/ mother board attached. Set board aside and located power button which was broke off. Compare button to all other buttons on panel to see how they are attached to panel. My husband used Plumbers Goop from Lowes store to attached power button like the others. Then he reassembled the dryer and presto! It works!

Blower motor access


You cant you have to remove the control panel, dryer top, top heat shield, dryer front, front drum support, belt, and then the drum in that order to get to the heater. I have been working on these since they have been out and have never changed a heater in one, They just dont burn out. Unplug the dryer and take the access cover off where the power cord attaches to the dryer and make sure the wires are not loose or burnt.
