Question about GE DBXR463EDWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Clothes not drying but back panel of dryer extremely hot

Recently my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is not able to dry a load on the first run. I have cleaned the dryer vent as well as completely disconnecting the hose and making sure it is clean throughout and checking to sinure the connection to the outside is clear. However it still doesn't thoroughly dry clothes in a single run. I attempted to touch the back of the panel when preparing to move it out for another check and when I touched the back panel it felt like my hand was about to get burnt. Also a previous issue with this dryer that has been ongoing for sometime has been a loud squealing noise when the dryer runs. Sometimes it is worse than others but as is always the case lately it is only getting louder.

Disconnect power. Next, you will have to remove the screws passing through the front panel into the front edge of the top so the top can be swung back. Remove the screw on each side near the top which are holding the front panel onto each side panel. Set the front panel off to the side. (most times you do not have to remove any wires to do this) Use your long thin arms to reach under the left side of the drum to unhook the drive belt. Now, you can remove the drum out the front of the dryer. Inspect the heating coils for breakage. Replace them with a new element set WE11x10007. (includes instructions, but don't stretch them as much as they say, so that you can leave a little tension on them as you install them. You don't want them too long) Replace the rear drum bearing WE3X75 to get rid of the squeak. Inspect the front drum slides (which support the drum at the top of the front panel) to see if they need replacement also.

Hi, my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is LOUD!


Roaring could be an over firing burner or fan related. Squeak or rumbles are bearings. Is the noise all the time or only when the burner is on? Eric

Dryer turns on, gets hot, but knob does not move with timer.


could be your operating thermostat on your heater or your timer if it runs on timed dry but not auto dry then it is a thermostat issue if it just does not run at all then it is a timer issue also make sure your vent is clear check by removing vent hose from back of unit and running a load if it works properly clean your vent.

DBXR463ED1WW GE Dryer Runs for Hours


on which setting are you running it. If you are running this on the timed setting then its obviously a faulty timer. Sounds to me though that you are running it on its automatic cycle. If this is the case it could be a couple of things. Somewhere on ur beast there is a moisture sensor, this is what advances the timer and tells it to stop. This may be faulty or it could be that ur vents are indeed clogged which would trap the moisture in and result in the long dry times. The simplest way to go about this one would be to clear the air flow and see if the problem persists.( this means pulling out the dryer clearing all the vents, if using the flexible ones make sure they are not binding up while setting dyer in place. Also if there is a vent that runs through the wall as well you can clear this by removing exterior vent). good luck

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.
