Can you verify the model number because I can't find anything matching what you sent. How old is the dryer?

SOURCE: Dryer stays hot hours after using it

The heater has failed and/or is shorting to the case. Remove the rear panel. The heater is on the right side, attached to the heater housing with two screws.

Dryer runs, can see burner is firing but heat setting seems stuck on ;Delicate cycle. Taking 3 hours to dry a load of towels.


gas coil condensors may not be working properly as they set the gas pressure needed to keep flame going hot. can check them with a multi meter however if flames stays on you may want to check the venting system first u might be surprised bad venting can slow down drying. check in machine and at exhaust to home. Again Each time you see the glow bar igniter come on it should ignite the gas burner. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red for a short time and then fading off without any burner ignition would indicate weak solenoid coils. The coils are mounted on top of the gas valve and they both will need to be removed and replaced. In order to access the solenoid coils will require removing the lint filter, removing the two screws which was hidden by the lint filter and raising the top and removing the front panel.

Dbsr463eg7ww no heat


First check to see that the exhaust venting line is clear (not full of lint) as well as the path in the dryer to the line. This is the most common cause of no heat.
Second set the knob to heat turn on dryer with the lights off and the door open but the "open door" switch so that it still rotates with the door open. Look at the back of the rotating drum for a orange/red glow behind the drum (the heater coils). If there is no glow the heater coils are probably broken.
As the dryers age, the amount of thermal cycles the heater elements go through until the point when the coil wire breaks. There usually two heater coils behind the rotating drum (one hotter than the other and when combined the hottest heat temperature setting. You will need to pop open the top where you see the belt that turns the drum. The belt is removed from the spring loaded tensioner pulley at the base of the dryer. Then you can lift the drum out to get to the heater coils. Since no heat, both should be broken and will require replacement.

No high heat in dryer


This type of dryer has 2 rows of elements. If one is out then you will not have high heat.


Basically to get into ge dryers your start by popping the top then removing the front. Then the drum comes out.

How to replace ge dryer heating element


you will need to remove the drum for this one.  once it is out, the element is mounted on the back of the unit.  not a hard repair, just lay out the parts as you take it apart to give you some order as you re-assemble it.

Dryer vibrates with exhaust hose attached


Doubt this has anything to do with the drum replacement. Your model has an independent variable speed blower motor (not linked to the motor which turns the drum) and speeds up when it senses a vent restriction. You may have a problem with the vent motor or blower wheel, or just a vent restriction issue.
