Re: GE Prodigy gas dryer will not start

The buzz you are hearing is most likely be caused by the motor. The motor may be stuck from a restriction or it may be faulty.

Shutting off before cycle end ? Check the vent line. It may be partially clogged.

Won't run at all ? Something may still be wrong with the wiring. Check the breakers and make sure you have 220V at the recepticle.

EuroTech EWC177 washer/dryer combo reset

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, ..well this is a solution.....
my roommate unplugged the machine while it was drying. the start and spin lights were both flashing. I called the company and they told me to reset it, but the weren't sure how, lol.
I unplugged it and waiting, nothing. I flipped the breaker, nothing. I finally turned it to a setting, and turned on nob on the dry, and it started clicking.
I turned off the dry, and hit the start button, and it started right up...

If the next time you use it and it's fine then you did succeed in resetting the system and will be alright!
Let me know that we were successful!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Why wont my machine start drying?

I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!

1) Most GE appliances have service manuals. By the manual because it will save you the repair services for the life of the machine. 2) I am not familiar with the GE Profile, so I don't know if it has dial knobs, or control panels. Any way, your problems seem like the timer unit is the problem. If it has dial knobs, the timer costs about US$100 - $150. The control panel circuit probably costs that much. You can buy the service manual and parts from Sears or parts services
