Question about GE DBXR463EDWW Electric Dryer
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.
