Broken belt. The safety switch will not allow the motor to stay running if the belt is broken. Open the door and look up at the 12 oclock position and their will either be 2 or 4 screws holding down the top. These must be removed and then you can get the top to come up(or off on newer models). Once you have the top up you can get to the screws which hold the front on (2). Then you simply remove the front and get it out of your way. On some these dryers there is a friendly rear hatch to help you replace the idler.

The dryer has a diagram on the machine. The centrifugal switch is on the end of the motor and they close when the motor is running. This contact is in the element circuit.

SOURCE: Dryer blower motor runs slow and makes loud humming noise.

It will almost certainly be the capacitor. Instead of buying the $60 part thru parts suppliers, I went to a local engine repair shop and bought one for $8.50 and installed it. It worked fine.

You can order the part from Beidlers motor repair, just as I did. Their number is (304) 263-9995

I have a GE Electric Dryer model DPVH880EJMV. It stopped working and displays error code E12 - "Motor is not rotating or centrifugal switch is bad". Anyone run into this issue before or have a fix?


Jeff,
If your centrifugal switch is bad, more than likely you are going to need a new motor because those are built into the motor. The only other thing to check is to find out if you are actually getting power down to the motor. If you are, then motor problem, if not, then something else is bad that is not letting the current get to the motor. If you can find your wiring diagram, you should be able to find which wires deliver the current to the motor and you can back track to see where you lose the current. Hope this helps!

Why doesn't the dryer stay running when I let go of the start switch?


Hi, There is only one reason I can see the dryer stops after you let off on the start switch is the motor because GE motors has start switches either built inside the motor which is non removable or built outside the motor which can be replaced .
Its called a motor start switch and the way to locate it is to remove the front panel on the dryer and remove the drum and belt and then write down the motor model number and look at all the wires that go into the motor which is your motor start switch that is held in by two screws but before you remove it don't forget to copy the wire down on piece of paper of how you remove them .
If you don't see a black switch to the motor then its built in and the motor needs to be replaced.

Dryer vibrates with exhaust hose attached


Doubt this has anything to do with the drum replacement. Your model has an independent variable speed blower motor (not linked to the motor which turns the drum) and speeds up when it senses a vent restriction. You may have a problem with the vent motor or blower wheel, or just a vent restriction issue.

Blower motor access


You cant you have to remove the control panel, dryer top, top heat shield, dryer front, front drum support, belt, and then the drum in that order to get to the heater. I have been working on these since they have been out and have never changed a heater in one, They just dont burn out. Unplug the dryer and take the access cover off where the power cord attaches to the dryer and make sure the wires are not loose or burnt.

Dryer intermitantly drys.


I have replaced several blower motors on these units for that problem. If the board doesn't read the blower motor speed it won't turn the heater on.

Ge Commercial Coin-Op Dryer.


When you replaced the motor, did you replace the relay? It sounds like you have done everything reasonable. I would try bypassing the coin operation part and see if that changes anything. Go back to the motor relay. It may be incorrect application. the part guys only know what the computer tells them. it may need a different one. I am assuming that when the unit shuts off you checked for power from the timer to the next place, according to the diagram.

GE Profile Electric Dryer, Blower nt getting up to speed


On all the ones I've seen with this problem, they've needed a new blower motor. Don't take that as the golden answer because even G.E. tech support doesn't know. It could be the control board, but I haven't seen that yet. G.E. always recommends replacing the inlet thermister, which is accessed through a little cover on the back. Good luck & welcome to the wonderful world of complex electronic appliances.
