    Dryer is making awlful noise, sounds like it coming from the back. I have the top off and sounds like a bearing is out. Don't think it spins on a bearing though.

    mechanical noise during drum revolotion. Sort of grinding but not during the entire revolution and seems to come from beneath the drum. No squeals or sqweaks. It happens primarily when loaded with clothes.

Dryer covers are attached with both screws and locking tabs. these tabs are designed as bent metal that creates a spring effect to mate to the next cover. either pull the cover off in an upward direction or away from the dryer in rapid motion to unlock the tabs.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

unplug it,open the door and look up,you'll see two phillips screws,take them out and remove the top panel,if you want to remove the front panel just remove the two phillips screws one on each side of the panel around 4 inches down from the top.

I have a ge profile and when it is starting it makes a gringing noise but the belt seems ok. When I turn the setting to air dry the grinding sound stops. Could it be something with the heater/gas line...

I have a GE Profile Harmony Dryer DPGT750. The machine makes a loud, almost grinding noise when the dryer is operating. It also sounds almost as though the drum is out of balance. It is more noticeable...

GE dryer won't start up - sounds like the drum is stuck.


unplug it,open the door and look up.you'll see two screws,take them out and remove the top panel,then look around three or four inches down from the top and removetwo more screws,one on each side,this is harder than most dryers to work on,not much room to reach under the drum to remove and reinstall the belt,there's also one more screw down on the right hand side below the drum that has to come out also, just remember how you took it apart,if you start it and hear a loud humming sound that's the motor,hope this helps you

How do you remove the back plate of a GE profile Harmony. I have the screws out, the top off. Does the back plate slide up? Do the sides have to come off with the back? Or what?Please. Thanks


the back plate does not come off.
to get to the motors, belt, sensors...
remove the screws to the inner top cover(under outer cover) and the plastic strips- slide strips front or back to remove.
remove the screws to the front panel- 2 top front, 4 inside door.
as you pull the front off, unhook the light and the door switch
remove the scres to the front drum plate.
reach under drum and unhook belt-take note how it goes around motor and tensioner.
lift drum out and observe everything else.

Plastic box with wire on back of ge profile harmoney DPGt750


It's hard to tell for certain from your post, but it sounds like you broke the wire to a thermistor (part # WE04X10111). It is a little temp sensor which extends into the dryer about a inch with two same colored wires coming out of the exterior end. Easy to replace. remove cover, remove one screw holding thermistor. unplug white disconnect block. install new part. very simple, saved the $118, only cost ya the price of the part. (maybe about $35 or so) A FixYa rating would be appreciated. Thanks.
