Ge dryer dde7100 nbl

I have an older GE clothes dryer that keeps burning the wire that feeds the heating element where it attaches to the motor switch. unfortunately the wiring diagram on the back of the dryer is no longer readable. My local appliance parts store says the switch is no longer available so I need to buy a motor. I would like to make sure that the switch is the only problem before I replace the motor. For that I need a wiring diagram. Is there one available?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Candy CMD146 Washer Dryer drum spins but does not heat

Yes it could be the heating element. However, it could be the thermal overload switch. This is located under the top of the machine. Bypass it to see if works. If it does, then it is the switch. If not, check the element. It sounds like this is the element with the 2 yellow wires.You will need to pull it to visually check to see if it is burned in 2.Check the element first since you have easier access to it. Let me know how this works.

there's a broken belt switch connected to the belt idler pulley,(when this belt breaks the switch opens) located down by the motor and it kills the power to the dryer when the belt breaks so the heating element cant get the clothes too hot to burn the clothes when the drum cannot rotate properly

MY OLD GE ELECTRIC DRYER TURNS ON BUT WILL NOT HEAT


Hi,


Make sure you check these to fix the problem.
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

  • Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

  • A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.


Thank you

GE Front loader doesn't dry clothes completely.


Hello there:
f yourdryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied withthe proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is gettingto your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, checkthe circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are inthe correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in yourfuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is notgetting to your dryer.

dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.
dryer_thermostat.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could bethe reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinetand test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replacethem.
dryer_timer.jpg Timer motor

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up.Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as itshould, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

Dryer back over plug is too hot, smells like its burning, burns to touch, what's up? Just started, nothing unusual with the loads of clothes or anything...just when it heats up, it is way too hot...


Sorry to hear that. Your Dryer is now a fire hazard. Somehow it is using a lot of current (perhaps a faulty motor or the heat element have a short circuit). I do recommend you stop using the dryer immediately and request a technician to determine why the appliance is taking a lot of current.

I have seen a similar problem before, it was caused by a wire that came off from a bra and stuck in the heating element.

Don't wait for an accident just to save some bucks.

Good luck.

Holes in Clothes


You'll need a drill with a wire brush attachment and take that to the front of the heating element. The heating element gets a lot of crud built up on it and yes it'll put holes on clothes.

Sounds like your heating element is burned out (acually burned threw) when you moved it if the element was weak it may have broke in two along the coil wires.

Ge dryer not heating


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
