Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer
For a few months we have noticed that our dryer runs for HOURS...what would normally take an hour lasts has lasted for 3-4. The knob barely moves until it gets close to the end. The clothes are dry prior to it shutting off and sometimes are really hot.
We can't leave the house with the dryer running because we can't trust it will shut off and we don't want to burn our house down!
We had a repair a few years back because the lint trap was clogging and clothes weren't drying- they were damp. His solution was for us to crawl behind the dryer EACH WEEK, pull off the stack, clean it out and re-duct tape the seal each time....RIDICULOUS for a costly applicance!
Please help, this is wearing on our nerves and one of these days we might forget to shut it off...
On which setting are you running it. If you are running this on the timed setting then its obviously a faulty timer. Sounds to me though that you are running it on its automatic cycle. If this is the case it could be a couple of things. Somewhere on ur beast there is a moisture sensor, this is what advances the timer and tells it to stop. This may be faulty or it could be that ur vents are indeed clogged which would trap the moisture in and result in the long dry times. The simplest way to go about this one would be to clear the air flow and see if the problem persists.( this means pulling out the dryer clearing all the vents, if using the flexible ones make sure they are not binding up while setting dyer in place. Also if there is a vent that runs through the wall as well you can clear this by removing exterior vent). good luck
