Dryers either heat or they don't. If you have heat but clothes take a long time to dry, it will always be an issue with your venting system. That could be anything from a clog in the hose or at the outside exit, a smashed vent hose or a very long run of hose which will cut down on effective evacuation of the moist air, to name a few.

The door switch is a 3 way switch. Though the light comes on when the door is open the other part of the switch may be out for the dryer to start.

My general electric dryer DDE5300 is no longer warm so clothes don't dry, though it runs. How can I tell if its the heating element or the thermostat?


You Will have to use an ohm meter and the tub has to be taken out. You can on a GE open the door and push in on the door switch and starte it with the door open and look straight in and see the heater come on but if either the heat element of thermostat is out the element wont come on. If you live in ahouse with fuses instead of circuit breakes or a fuse box between the dryer and main circut box check the fuses an electric dryer will run on one fuse but not heat if this is the case switch the fuses and see if it runs if not one fuse is bad.

The light will not turn off and dryer wont run


CK,
There's a switch behind the dryer door. Push it in and out with your finger, you should here it "click, click, click" and the light should go on and off. If it doesn't, you'll need to replace the door switch.

If that's the case, I'll need the full model number. It's on a sticker on the front panel behind the door. (it should be like three digits, decimal point and about 7 more numbers... 110.*******) With that number, I'll be able to look up parts for you and guide you through this easy repair.

Gas Dryer does not run, light comes on in drum, everything else is dead.


do you mean it doesn't heat or does not run at all. i would check the door switch, if its not running at all. try opening the door and push the door switch closed by hand, if the light doesn't go out replace the switch
