Hot Point Dryer wont start

I've had my hot point dryer for 7 years with no problem...then today after taking one load out and putting another in (small load) the dryer will not start. It makes a sound like it is going to start but the drum does not start moving.

I've checked to make sure it is plugged in and the circuit did not blow (I don't think it would make any sound if this were the case). Lint filter is clean. Any help would be appreciated, I live in an area where there are no GE service people.

Might be the capacitor that starts the motor. if the drum can be push started to get it going this will be the proof. you would need to get a cap. of the same rating.

Hot Point Dryer won't dry, gets hot on top.

An educated guess would be either the lint tube or the tube that exhausts the air outside is blocked with lint----no airflow or greatly reduced flow will cause this symptom.

Dryer hot but not drying quickly.

Sounds like you have a clogged vent. Hopefully you've gotten this repaired.

My hot point will not fill with water the supply is ok

The screens where the hoses connect to the washer are clogged with mineral deposits, which is not allowing the water to flow into the washer. I've had the same problem.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes

Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.

Hot Point electric dryer squeaking when in use.

It could be one of the pulleys on the bottom of the drum. Take the top and front panels off of the dryer. Get some WD-40. Now the hard part, there is no easy way, but put your right arm in underneath the drum (the right side of the drum)and spray the pulley the best you can. This is the hardest, but the easiest way to fix this problem, without having to take the entire dryer and drum apart. I had the similar problem. I didn't completely fix the problem, but the squeak has been significantly quieted.

Hot point dryer

Three problems
  1. :Heater thermal fuse is blown, not a repairable/resettable item, replace the thermal fuse.
  2. the controller that turns on the heater, is fubar
    it is a relay with 120v solenoid coil and 120v terminals for the motor and 240v terminals for the heater. the 240v side has fused closed so does not turn off. not a repairable item replace the relay
  3. The scraping noise could be from drum bearings/rollers Check the roller bearings under the rear of the drum, to make sure they still turn freely and have not dropped, check the felt ring at the front of the drum to see if it is worn out

  1. as soon as you started the motor a rush of very overtemperature air travelled down the exhaust duct and melted the thermal cutout screwed on the side of the duct, inside the dryer. These items are between $7-$13, and every washer/dryer parts store has them, there are only 4 or five different ones in all the makes of dryer.
  2. Locate the run relay, and remove it, test with a ohmmeter or battery and bulb, across the load terminals, ALL load terminals should have, no light on the lamp, infinity ohms on the meter,
    solenoid coil terminals should have about 100ohm on the meter, faint glow on the lamp
    relays are $18 -$90 (rippoff but some have to use OEM parts)
  3. roller kits are $9+, felts between $12-$30
