Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer
Our GE dryer is a year old and we moved from one house to another and now there is no heat. We did have to install the electric plug in the new house because it was set up for gas but my husband has checked the fuse box and that is not the problem. Someone told us it was the heating element but can this be? Isn't it too new to have this problem? Do you have any other ideas we could check before we buy a new heating element?
Thanks for your attention!
From the info you've given, I'd suggest confirming whether the electrical circuit breaker arrangement for the dryer is single-pole (one wire and handle, 120V) or two-pole (2 wires and handles, 240V). The heating element requires 240V. Also, you mentioned a "fuse box". Hopefully you meant circuit breaker panel. The wiring in any house old enough to have fuses instead of breakers would be a major concern unless you're into indoor barbeques in the middle of the night.
