Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

Our dryer just stopped working. It wasn't a "monster" load, but it had a considerable amount of clothes in it when it stopped working (mid-cycle). It was working, my wife opened it to check on the clothes, and then when she closed the door it didn't start again. It's a GE model DBL333EB1WW. Thanks

I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Why does my dryer make a load bang mid cycle?


You are overloading your machine, and in mid-cycle, the clothes are becoming out of balance. Try running the dryer with smaller loads. You will find that the clothes will come out of the dryer with fewer wrinkles, and that your items will be less likely to be damp after a drying cycle. If you continue to overload your machine, you risk breaking of belts or otherwise damaging your machine. You also may decrease the life of the clothes you dry since overloading is also hard on seams and fabrics.

My dryer has been difficult to start lately especially if stopped mid cycle. The lights are all on but it won't start up. Today I only used it 2 times and it was very difficult to start after pressing many...


You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.

Dryer overheats, stops mid-cycle


Hi, Will the dryer restart right away? Sounds like a motor going bad. With a model #, I can get you part#s if you need them. Is this a whirlpool brand?
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Works on all cycles except that on the Automatic dry Miser setting the dryer stops mid cycle. All other cycles work fine and run through the complete cycle.


Inside the drum is 2 long metal trips that measure capacitance in the clothes as they get dryer. Sometimmes liquid fabric softener gets on them and stops the process. Wipe them off. They are right on the filter housing inside just below the filter.
