Question about General Electric GE DBVH520EJWW Electric Dryer
1 year old, DBVH520E. Panel will come on, hear a click, nothing else. No tumble no heat.
Your dryer should have a service manual taped to the inside of the rear panel or behind the front kickplate.
It will give you the locations you are looking for, and well as the testing values of sensors etc.
Absent of any error codes - I would suggest your Main Controller board to be failing. It is really the Timer - however it is on-board the controller and not seperately serviceable. A new controller is required.
CLICK HERE to see it.
The thermal fuse would not be the problem here - as the dryer would still tumble - but not heat up.
There is no internal circuit breaker - that is located in your main circuit breaker panel of your house.
The CLICK indicates the relay for the motor engaging.
To rule out the MOTOR being bad, you would need to access the motor, and take readings at the motor after the click is heard.
No voltage after the click means the controller is bad... voltage at motor, but no spin = bad motor.
You can try a hard reset if you havent already by simply unplugging the machine for 10 minutes and re-trying. However that rarely rectifies the problem.
If you require additional assistance, please use the "Continue with this expert" option so we are connected in the future.

Check the thermal fuse, the clicking noise usually indicates a faulty control timer board.
You will probably need to replace the control timer assembly.
The part must be tested before replacement.
You find diagrams and replacements here.
It sounds like it is coming from behind the knob for the settings.could this be a timer issue
Most Electric dryers work on 240 Volts. And have their own seperate circuit breaker, usually marked as "Dryer."
So resetting just the main cuircuit breaker might not be enough.
Thank You for contacting Fixya
