I would check the connections at the terminal block (where the dryer cord is installed on the machine, there will be a small access panel). The dryer cord is installed by the delivery guys, and those connections are frequently left too loose. That loose connection will eventually fail.

SOURCE: Dryer takes a very long time to dry a load.

Some dryers have more than one heating elliment..

A way to check is -- take the exaust hose off.. Put a mirror so you can see into the hole & hopefully see the heating elliment(s).. When running they should glow like a stove burner..
If it is not gloing its not working & needs to be replaced..

I suspect that one may have went out..

I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

SOURCE: GE dryer will not dry towels

How warm is "warm"? If the clothes are warm to hot after 15 minutes of running but not gettign dry, you do not have a heating element problem. Sounds like you still have an air flow problem. Does the heating element cycle often? You may have lint clogged at he entrance to the blower. This would be out of sight from the exhaust. Try removing the exhuast hose and running it in air-only and feel the amount of air leaving. It should feel like a lot of air coming out. If not, you will need to check the condition of the blower. I had this same issue and ended up pulling the blower cover off and pulled out a very large amount of lint..it was almost completely clogged. Afterwards it drys really fast! Good-Luck.

PS If you do not feel comfortable accessing the blower, you should have a professional do it for you.

Clean Lint Filter Light Keeps Dryer from starting


Evidently the fuse blew for some reason.
Keep the dryer unplugged from power for one hour or so. If it still does start, you will have to take apart the dryer, check the fuse, check the thermal fuse, and test the wirings inside.
If you need to call arepairman use the number listed on the owner manual.

Take the cover off where the power enters the dryer and confirm that you have 240 volts there and the connections are tight. If yes, check for a broken belt or a drum safety thermostat. The last time I saw this, I found incorrect voltage present at the dryer. Checked the breaker and found that there was a bad connection from the breaker to the main buss bar in the circuit breaker panel.

GE Dryer PBSR353ET5WW.. I believe this unit is manufactured in Canada.. unit works, but does not heat up..


Check and clear the lint filters, and reset the circuit breaker. If your dryer still does not heat up, it is likely that the SWITCH controlling the heating element, OR the HEATING ELEMENT ITSELF is faulty and needs to be replaced.

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

GE DVLR223 Not Heating--Is there a reset?


There is no reset. What he did was probably replace the thermal fuse. Why did he not clean it out for ya? Anyway when the thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer or the heat won't work. If you can open the dryer up by removing the front panel, you can test your thermal fuse for continuity. If none replace it. While you have the front off undo your belt and remove the 3 screws that secure the rear of the drum (inside drum in middle at back) pull drum out and make sure heat element is not broken. Here is a site for your dryer check it out. www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-dvlr223-%3d%3d&z=100 Good Luck

Loud Pop, blown Breaker


Pull the unit away from the wall and inspect from rear. However, if all is fine, perhaps you simply overloaded the circuit that once. Were you running any other appliances (overhead microwave) at the same time?
