Question about GE DSXH47EGWW Electric Dryer

GE dryer, three beeps....anybody know what that means?

I have a GE DSXH47EGWW electric dryer. It's just under 2 years old. For the past month or so, I get three quick beeps several times while I'm drying. I always empty the lint filter after each use. I even washed the lint filter to see if that was the problem. It seems to be working just fine.....I'm just concerned about those three beeps.

SOURCE: dryer takes more than one cycle to dry clothes

Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Dryer stops drying and lint error message...

try cleaning the vent line. if you have a flex vent line make sure it isn't kinked in any spot. make sure the outlet outside does not have a birds nest or anything blocking it

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.

Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: GE Profile Dryer - sensor problem

When I pull up the exploded view of your model, it does not show an individual moisture sensor, but is does show disconnect plug(s) for it. I can only assume that the sensor bars are an intrical part of one of the front bulkhead components. That all being said, the most common reason for your symptoms is when people use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, the sheets leave a waxy type coating on the silver sensor bars inside the drum, near the air inlet to the lint filter. If you clean those two (usually about 4 inch long x about 1/4 inch wide) metal bars off, they will be able to detect the moisture level of the clothing again, and your dryer will work on auto dry again.

SOURCE: GE gas dryer gets hot but doesn't dry clothes like it used to

rule number one take everything off of it and never store clothes or anything that can insulate the top it overheats them. It kind of fools all your sensors when you store stuff on top

I would replace parts. It still is cheaper than a new unit. So get the new control panel and do it yourself and save money. The average life of a dyer is dependant only on when the owner gives up. I just serviced on last week that was 25 years old.

I press the start button and dryer will not start. 5 lights flash and beep but the dryer does not start


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the dryer ID doesn't mean very
much to me. Over the years, I haven't had much
trouble with my dryers. However I can refer you to
www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair information on dryers and
other appliances. I think you'll find what you need
there. If you have an error code you can probably
find the meaning of it there. Good luck with it.
If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Loud Grinding noise in Dryer


I know this prob is old, but I had the very same prob with my dryer (very loud squeaking noise). The prob was that there was a screw stuck between the rotating part and the stationary part. Meaning - look inside the dryer (main area - where the clothes go) and rotate it by hand. You may hear and see something causing the friction. Gerard
