Question about GE DBLR333EE Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Runs for 5 minutes then shuts off.

I changed the heating element on my dryer, started great and worked great. After 5 minutes it shuts off. I do have heat and there is no blockage on the exhaust. Any idea what may cause this?

Dryer starts and about 5 minutes later stops and lights start flashing


DRYER OVERHEATING: Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Dryer runs then shuts down wont start up for an hour:
Bad motor windings

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Kenmore dryer model 417.84252500 runs but does not heat


Disconnect the plug. Disconnect the wires to the heater element. Using an ohm meter or test light,test the heater element to see if it is open. If it is open the meter needle will not move If a test light , it will not light.  If true then replace element.
