Dryer not drying after 1st load

I have a GE dryer (DDE720SBLWW) that is not working after 1st load. A little frustrating, but I'm hoping this is an easy fix. I don't want to buy a new dryer.....at least yet. Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: dryer makes loud squeaking noise when spinning

there are two possibilities for this question. 1) there is an idler roller that give the belt the correct tension . unplug dryer and remove idler roller see if it spins freely if not replace it @0 there are two drum rollers in back of machine thatdrum rides on remove drum it's self explanitory how to remove drum and very easy also. you can roll these wheels and check for free movement visually check them ,one or both should be worn out or the bearing in the wheel has failed before putting old or new wheels back sand the wheel shafts to get any gunk off them and that's about the only thing that can make a dryer squeek

SOURCE: My GE Dryer model DWSR483EA1ww will not stop & doesn't dry quick

first thing you should do is check the flow of your vent, a clogged vent can cause all your problems check it outside while the unit is running you should get really good flow compare it to the flow of the dryer with the vent hose off the dryer completly. they should be fairly close or just run it with out the vent hooked up to the vent if you have an electric but not with a gas dryer

Hi and Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You already have discovered the problem. Lint has built up in the vent / exhaust ducting. Most of the time the through the wall vent flapper gets lint build up on it outside the house and then as that restricts airflow you get condensation in the ducting. The condensation causes the lint to form a cake like paste inside the ducting. THOROUGHLY Clean out your vent ducting from the dryer connection all the way thru the outside wall and your dryer will be fine. If you need to replace the ducting please do so. Ducting is cheaper than the electricity you waste on clogged ducting. You proved your dryer will work correctly when you dried a load of clothes with the ducting removed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

My GE dryer cuts off around 10 minutes into most loads...


You have a bad motor. Could possibly be caused by lint buildup on the motor itself a loose belt or clogged external vent line.

Dryer takes a very long time to dry a load.


Some dryers have more than one heating elliment..

A way to check is -- take the exaust hose off.. Put a mirror so you can see into the hole & hopefully see the heating elliment(s).. When running they should glow like a stove burner..
If it is not gloing its not working & needs to be replaced..

I suspect that one may have went out..

I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

GE Harmony electric dryer model DPGT750EC1PL- very little heat - small rattle - takes hours to dry load of laundry... any ideas?


Check the following to address this issue.


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

You have one of 2 things wrong. 1st, there is a thermal fuse that is in the back of the dryer. It is a disk with a fuse inside. Or the overload that is attached to the housing of the element. If you got a new one with your element then its the 1st. Cheap parts..can be found at www.Repairclinic.com or any appliance parts store. Good luck.

Ge profile harmony dryer


You most likely have a clogged venting system going to the oustside.. Try this pull the dryer away from the wall remove the flex venting pipe.
Run a load now yes i know the heat and moisture will come in the house but it is just one load(open a window) if it works ok then you will need to get someone out to clean your vent and your money back from the repairman who came out .....any technician worth anything should have told you this.....98% of long dry time calls are a plugged venting..just and FYI...Hope this fix ya if so plz rate
