Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer is driving me out of the house!!!

I have a GE Profile Dryer that is about 9 years old and lately it has been making this horrible sound when drying clothes. It is a high pitched squeel. I think it is the belt, Can anyone tell me how to change it myself? and guide me thru it, Is it really that hard?

It's most likely not the belt. It's either the tension pulley whereas the bearing has gone bad. Or it's the rear drum bearing. The drum sits in this saddle type bearing and when it goes bad it can drop the drum and you can be rubbing metal on metal.
I would let a service tech take care of it. Should be about $100.00 for service call and parts. He could do it in about an hour or less.
Chances are you won't get anyone to sell you the parts either. They got the market cornered. Most places only sell to techs.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again
