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: Clothes do not get dry when using the sensor dry setting on GE dryer.

Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.

SOURCE: whirlpool ultimate care II dryer: dry clothes sensor

Make sure that the vents are cleaned to include outside. Where it hook on to the dryer make sure that the housing is cleaned also. That should take care of the problem. Thankyou and if you need more help let us know.

SOURCE: GE Front loader doesn't dry clothes completely.

Hello there:
f yourdryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied withthe proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is gettingto your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, checkthe circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are inthe correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in yourfuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is notgetting to your dryer.

dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.
dryer_thermostat.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could bethe reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinetand test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replacethem.
dryer_timer.jpg Timer motor

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up.Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as itshould, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

SOURCE: my GE Profile Harmony dryer wont dry clothes

I finally had a GE authorized tech come to our house, because we've had the same problem on and off for about 2 yrs. Our's is 5 1/2 yrs old, and the problem was the blower motor, which is hard to get to, and the nut holding the fan in place is also put on going the "opposite" direction. (So lefty loosey, righty tighty doesn't work for this one) The Tech told me in all his years he has never replaced a heater in any of these, and it has 2. The usual problem is the blower motor has gone bad. It's working great now, and it was $470 to fix, but still cheaper than a new one....

Clothes get caught


Instructions

1

Remove the lint screen from the GE electric clothes dryer.
2

Roll the lint from the screen with your hand. If the lint screen is clogged with fabric softener, fill a sink with hot water and add 1 to 2 tsp. dish soap.

3

Scrub the lint screen with a soft-bristle brush and soapy water. Rinse the lint screen thoroughly and shake off any excess water. Set the lint screen aside to air dry while you clean the dryer exterior.
4

Dampen a cloth with warm water and wring it out. Wipe over the GE electric dryer exterior to remove any lint, dust or product residue. If the dryer is very dirty, dip the cloth in the soapy water and wipe away any spots.
5

Wipe the GE clothes dryer with a towel to dry. Replace the lint screen when it's completely dry.

Your dryer has a double set of heating elements
themobilian_2122.jpg
1 side of the coils is probably broken and you are getting half the heat.
This is making the dryer take longer to dry them clothes.
themobilian_2123.jpg
themobilian_2124.jpg
Air restrictions in the dryer and vent can cause the heater control to shut down quickly also.
If you have a bad breaker the power will sometimes work and sometimes not.
themobilian_2125.jpg
If all of these are good you might have a problem with the timer.

Most of the GE timers have leaf switches in the that get a burr on the contacts. The come apart simple enough.

I have a GE washer/dryer Model WSM2700RAWWH stack type and the dryer is taking very long time to dry the clothes. Please advise if it can be fixed. If not what will be best alternate washer/dryer stack...


first things first. if any dryer regardless of brand takes 2-3 hours to dry cloths 90% of the time it is your exhaust duct. take the exhaust duct off the back of the dryer and dry some clothes if the clothes dry fast then you need to have your exhaust duct cleaned. either DIY or call a professional
if it still takes a long time to dry then it could be the thermostats or the thermistor.
but in my experience its normally the exhaust duct.

The dryer starts without using the start knob when you open and close the dryer door during a cycle. The dial is also not advancing during the dry cycle and the clothes are taking a long time to dry.


Assuming that you have GE dryer DBXR463ED0WW,
Sounds like there is a couple of problems there:
  1. The start switch is stuck and needs replacement/repair, part number WE4X881
  2. The clothes taking too long to dry may be due to a) clogged dryer vent; b) one or both heater coils burnt out; part numbers: WE11X10007 for restring coils only or WE11M23 for whole heater assembly c) problem with temperature selector switch, part number WE4M407
  3. There might be a problem with timer (WE4M271), but before replacing it I'd suggest taking care of the long dry problem first. In some models, timers are wired that way so the timer advances only when there is heat, so check the schematic.
There should be a schematic diagram inside the control panel, use it to for diagnosing the problems you described.

Good luck,
Vlad

Will not dry clothes.


Your heater element may be burnt or you may have to many bends in the vent pipe. also try a smaller load if you still have trouble let me know and I can give you a diagram and tell you things to check in order. You will need a volt meter to do the test and understand the dangers of operating voltage. Also Just for the heck of it try resetting you circuit Breaker for the dryer.

Dryer must run two complete cycles to dry clothes


the first thing to checkis the duct venting and make sure it is not clogged or blocked. when the dryer is running go to the outside of the house where the dryer venting is and look at or feelthe amount of air flow coming out.if the air flow is weak there is a restriction somewhere.if the air flow is good and strong then check the heating element. also the washer may not be spinning out the clothes properly

Dryer is taking forever to dry clothes.


you better not use the dryer again until you can clean the entire vent system-----not just the lint filter , but the back of the dryer and the complete exhaust duct all the way to the outside. It is probably plugged. Also check to make sure nothing is blocking the air intake. I know a co worker who had a house fire due to a blocked vent. After the vent is clear, make sure you can feel a good stream of air coming out at the outsde of the vent.
