You may need a new door switch. Check the wire connections and be sure the switch is secured.

SOURCE: GE Dryer DWSR473GV0WW periodically just hums when turning on switch

if it hums when you start it means switch is ok. problem may be the motor capacitor. to check, take off the top and give the drum a push in the normal direction of rotation. if it goes then motor capacitor is faulty - cheap part

Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim

Try this. Set the timer. Open the door, press and hold the light switch. Rotate the drum by hand then while still holding the light switch turn on the dryer. If it starts then clos the door while removing your finger quickly. If this problem persists it could be the starter on your motor.

Hello,

I have seen that in those dryers before and it has always been the motor that is causing it to start without engaging the start switch.

MI have a maytag washer the works when I slam the door repeatedly. Whats wrong ?


Hi,

I would suggest the interlock or door sensor is malfunctioning which will only become worse each time you have to slam the door.
Sorry but service engineer call ;-0)

Gas dryer runs but no heat


Those coils are probably getting hot and quitting then after a long time they cool off and work some more then quit again.62a13a2.jpg2720ab1.jpg

Dryer won't start after I slammed the door


The door switch is probably in the next room somewhere.

Look in the hole around the edge of the dryer opening. There should be a switch in there. It's most likely been pushed back so the door post/actuator does not engage it.

Switch need to be put back in place.

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!
