Question about GE DBL333EA Electric Dryer

1 Answer

GE dryer has trouble starting.

GE DBL333EA Electric Dryer: The dryer will start once after a long period of rest, but have to hold down the start switch like priming. If it doesn't start it will grind till there is no sound on the start, then dead untill another long period of rest. The dryer does not run each time the start switch is turned. If the dryer runs, everything works just fine.

    Sounds like the overload switch is cutting out , my gues will be that the motor is going bad. Just replaced mine was doing the same thing.

Slip the belt on the motor pulley with ribs touching pulley. Now let the idler pulley rest againdt the back side of the belt.
I hope this helps you.

Dryer doesnt start up at all


You must clean the dryer. Remove all lint from it and the vent and look for the FUSE here.

GE dryer DDE5300 runs only if you hold start lever- burnin smell from motor, Is there a start switch on motor?


Broken belt. The safety switch will not allow the motor to stay running if the belt is broken. Open the door and look up at the 12 oclock position and their will either be 2 or 4 screws holding down the top. These must be removed and then you can get the top to come up(or off on newer models). Once you have the top up you can get to the screws which hold the front on (2). Then you simply remove the front and get it out of your way. On some these dryers there is a friendly rear hatch to help you replace the idler.

Need some assistance with a DDE7200SBLWW/model ge dryer


If the dryer is getting hot but not turning, you most likely need a new drum belt. If the belt is ok then you will need a new motor.

Creda tumble dryer


It is probably the electric heater coil. How old is the machine? If a couple of years or more, the coil is probably burnt out. It is accessible through the back. Good luck!
