Question about GE DBLR333EE Electric Dryer
I have a ge dryer model dbl333b1ww serial ad734801w, that stopped heating . it doesen't heat still runs but now u could hear a chirping noise when turned on then it fades away after a minute, what could be the problem, how does one remove the back panel to see what might be wrong, or does one remove the front and if so how i am totally clueless about this stuff so any advise would help. thanks does anyone know of a website with a virtual manual or something that i can check out
The most likely cause for the dryer having stopped heating is the heating element has stopped working and probably needs to be replaced. The "chirping" you are hearing is probably the nylon bearing the drum runs on. This is located in the back of the machine and goes right along with the replacement of the heating element. To disasemble the machine, you will need to loosen the two phillips head screws located at the bottom corners of the control panel as you face the machine. You will then need to carefully pry up the top assembly so that it is free of the front door panel. This will allow you enough room to reach down inide the machine and remove the screws holding the door panel to the rest of the frame. You should know the drum will need to be supported once the door assembly is removed. I usually lay the machine on its back at this point and reach inside the drum to remove the 4 screws holding it in place. Once this is done, remove the drum and set it aside. At this point you will be able to see the heating element and the drum bearing. You will have to stand the machine back up right in order to remove the screws holding the bearing in place. Reassemble in reverse order. You can find sites that have drawings by searching the web for appliance parts.

I have a GE dryer that stopped heating several months ago. Mine I had to lift the top up to see the heating element. It was under the top on the back right hand side. Looks like a ceramic box with a spring looking coil in it. I could see that it was not heating up.
Mine was 4 screws to take off and I took the numbers off the element and called a local dryer repair shop and they had the part. Cost a little over $40
It was easy to install , even for a skirt LOL
Hope this helps you and others!
