I have A ge DBXR463ED2WW .it takes about 80 minutes to dry A load.dryer seems to only have A fourth to half heat.


This could be the clothes are coming out of the washer wetter than normal, or poor air flow. 80 min in a little long but a lot depends on the wetness and amount of clothes. If the vent system is clear then I would try smaller loads and checking the washer.

Just replaces heating element in GE dryer. Dried one load but does not work, now. Light works, so it has power. Suggestions?


I would check the thermal fuse or thermostat. If the thermal fuse is blown check for obstructions in your vent then replace. For a video on testing these components go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html scroll down to troubleshooting an electric dryer.

GE DWSR463EGWW electric dryer takes forever to dry clothes. Heating element comes on but then goes off. Where do I locate the thermal fuse if that is the problem.


The thermal fuse only shuts off the elements if the proper air flow isn't acheived. If the clothes are hot but still damp after the drying cycle then you have a blockage in the dryer exhaust either at the hose at the back of the machine or in the lint filter area. Check both and clean and your problem should be solved.

Hope this helped you

Ge dryer #DBXR463ED2WW does not start and power is going to dryer


You said, GE dryer #DBXR463ED2WW does not start and power is going to dryer

Here are the 5 most common reasons for your Electric dryer not to start.

Door Switch
The door switch must be operative before the dryer will start. Ensure the door switch strike is properly actuating the switch and if so, check the door switch for continuity with an ohmmeter for proper operation.

Faulty Drive Motor
If the motor will not start, it is possible it is defective. The wiring of the motor is different for each brand and you will need to refer to the wiring diagram of your dryer for the specific terminal locations. You will need to use a volt/ohm meter to check for resistance between the run winding and common (may be referred to a neutral). If there is no resistance, the motor is open and will need to be replaced.

The motor bearings can also go bad. A dryer with a motor in this condition can sometimes be started by hand and it will run. However when the motor gets hot the bearings begin to seize and the motor will stop. In this condition you must also replace the motor.

Electric Dryers:
On Electric dryers you will need to check the heat element for resistance. With the power disconnected, remove the two wires connecting to the heat element and check the resistance of the heat element by using a volt/ohm meter. The resistance should be between 5 and 50 ohms of resistance. If there is no reading the element is defective and will need to be replaced.

Heating Source
If the element is not receiving power it is likely that one of the thermostats is defective.

Thermal Fuse
The thermal fuse is in series with one leg of power to the motor. If the fuse is open (no continuity) the motor will not run.

Location:
The thermal fuse is located in different locations according to the model and brand of dryer.

Solution:
Check the thermal fuse for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. If it is open, it will need to be replaced.

Timer
The timer is the source for power to the motor and if the timer contacts are defective, there will be no power getting to the motor. Since the wiring is different between brands and models, you will need to refer to your wiring diagram for terminal locations. Once you have located the correct terminal for the motor operation, you will need to turn on the dryer and check for 110v from the timer terminal for motor operation and the chassis ground. If you have the voltage, the timer is most likely okay and the problem is elsewhere. If there is no voltage, the timer is defective and must be replaced.
