Just the motor itself is pricey. Around $175 when I last looked. But the motors are pretty decent and hardly go out. You most likely have a blown fuse or bad door switch.

How it works: Late model Ge top loading washer


The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.

I have a GE Sensor dry Profile dryer. Model # DPSQ475ET5WW. It makes a loud screeching noise when drying. It drys the clothes fine. Please help!!


Could be one of 5 problems:
  1. Worn or loose drum drive belt (Looks like a large fan belt) (New belt cost $12)
  2. The rear bearing is bad and needs replacing (part cost $40)
  3. The front bearing guide(Sleeve) is worn (Part cost 2@$6.00
  4. Total front bearing failure (Part cost $30 plus new guides2@$6)
  5. Possible that the fan is loose from the motor and hitting housing.
All of the above are easy do at home repairs if you re handy. You should be able to get a good idea of what is wrong just by turning the dryer drum by hand. If the problem is the front bearing or guides, you will hear a grinding noise in the front at the top of the door.
Below is a link to diagrams and parts for your dryer. - J

GE electric dryer; when start knob turned, dryer hums but will not run.


It is probably a faulty capacitor. This component energises the motor on start-up. It is a small white cylinder, usually located next to the motor. it has 4 or 2 connections. Easy to replace it, cost about $30 for the part.

GE Front loader doesn't dry clothes completely.


Hello there:
f yourdryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied withthe proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is gettingto your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, checkthe circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are inthe correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in yourfuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is notgetting to your dryer.

dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.

Dryer making noise and quits running


You may need to replace the drum rollers and front drum glides. The motor definitely is bad and should be replaced.
A Maytag dryer is worth investing the repair cost.

The dryer makes a loud noise and also a rubber smell develops after a 1/2 hour of use


My dryer did the same thing. I had to replace the front support glide assembly and needed 4 teflon glides.
The front part of the dryer runs over this plastic piece seen here upside down.
00087335.jpg
this part is about $50 CAN there are 4 plastic or teflon glides that fit into this.
My dryer had worn through the teflon glides and start wearing away this piece.
My dryer is a GE front load dryer. And I did get a burning smell because the dryer was wearing away the plastic. After the teflon strips wore down.
Hope this helps
