Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer

Dryer needs multiple cycles to dry

I just bought this dryer two weeks ago and when I try to dry my clothes, it needs several cycles and a lot of condensation builds up so when I open the door, the door is wet. We have a straight connection to the exhaust and last week I took it all apart to make sure there were no clogs. But considering it's brand new, it'd be amazing if it was already clogged up. I'm so frustrated and we are using a lot of electricity to dry our clothes now.

Re: Dryer needs multiple cycles to dry

I would check on the outside of the building. anti pest screens usualy plug up with lint. from the discription you have made it is definatly having troubles venting some where. Check every thing because venting is usualy not covered under warranty.

My dryer is Tcm570 it started leaking water on the floor while clothes are drying, then not drying after circulation. But if I try to put it on now it turns all the power in the house off. What's

There are a lot of parts to this problem: First don't plug it in again or try to restart it...yet, Make sure before you reset the circuit breaker that you unplug the dryer. So now your home should be fine! The dryer is another story... I have answered this problem for others and with other dryers... Please focus on your washer, there should be very little water that remains in your clothes after the wash cycle and the clothes should Definitely not be dripping. Check to see that your spin cycle is working and if necessary run it through the spin cycle again. You may be overloading the washer. Back to the dryer...NO water should EVER drip from a dryer! If you do not wish to call a service person I would wait about 1 1/2 weeks for the dryer to dry itself and give the dryer another try after that and set it for Air dry only (no heat) if you don't have a problem at that point then stop the dryer and set it for a low heat cycle and try again. I think at that point you should be OK? If you do have problems.. you will have to call in a service person. But please remember clothes should be quite dry coming from the washer before going into the dryer.

I have a neptune dryer I bought from a used appliance store about 6 months ago. The cycle comes on but there is no hot air. Clothes are not dry after 3 full cycles. I am not even sure if its gas. Don't...

you will need to get behind the dryer and disconnect the vent tube, try drying a load of clothes with the vent tube disconnected if it drys then the tube is the problem and needs to be cleaned out. If it is not drying at all then it is a few things, I am assuming its electric here is a website that will help:

Heats up but takes several cycles to get clothes dryer

Check for a restriction in your exhaust vent. not just behind the machine but all the way to the outside vent,should have good warm airflow at outside vent. With no good air flow you have no way to get rid of the moisture. and all you will end up with is warm moist clothes. this can happen slowley happen over time and next thing you know it takes several cycles to dry the clothes .it cost a lot to dry them this way

1 week ago the dry was extremely hot and now this week the dryer is cold and the clothes are wet.

Last week your cycling thermostat went bad. This week you thermal fuse went out. This is how it happened.
You dryer cycles on a thermostat. When it goes out the dryer then cycles on the (high limit) thermal fuse. When it goes out. The dryer stops heating. You will find both after you remove the back of the dryer. They are easy to replace. There are two different thermal fuses but if you order the parts using the model number you will have no problem. These two parts are sold in a kit.
Please rate this solution.

Hi, my 6 year old kenmore dryer series 700 started not drying the clothes in a single dryer cycle a week ago. I'd just run it another cycle and the clothes would be dry. Today there is no heat at all....

First check the vent pipe going out of the house might be cloged the best way to clean it out you self is to try a leaf blower if has enough force now it is not heating is because it has blow the high-limt thermal on the tub the heating element is in at the top of the tube on the left side (this is in the back panel of the dryer ) use a ohms meter to check if it is open if it is it will need to be replaced the cloged vent will cause the long dry time and will end up blowing the high-limit on the tube good luck

Dryer takes too long to dry my clothes

My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

To make sure it is a vent problem ,Do one load without the vent hose attaching to the wall ,keep in mind that it may blow out some dust, you may want to cover the end of vent hose with a nylon stocking for just this ONE time.Now run this 1 cycle on a timed dry cycle at the highest mark...60, 70,etc.If the clothes are dry at the final stopping point than you know your vent is blocked.Or you pinched the vent hose closed.It only takes a small blockage to create alot of waiting time for dryer to end its cycle.The faster the air can get out of the dryer the faster it dries.
