Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

GE Profile Harmony Dryer Drum will not turn

I have a GE Profile Harmony 7.3 cubic ft electric dryer that is approximately 4 years old. The dryer heats well but after every few loads of clothes dried, the dryer drum will not automatically turn. If I turn the drum clockwise (usually just a couple of rotations) until I hear light click and then close the door and push the start button, it works fine. I suspect there is some internal switch that is faulty or going bad as the problem isn't consistent (i.e. occurs every time) but is occurring between every 2-3 loads.

I would greatly appreciate anyone with knowledge on how to appropriately diagnose and correct this problem.

Dryer won't heat. GE profile. approximately 5 years old. Tumbles just fine. Vent is not plugged. Would like to fix myself. Thanks


Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
You can also check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the saftey of overheat from the machine.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps
