First of all, you will need to UNPLUG the dryer before any attempts to service the inside of the unit. High voltage is still present with the unit turned off.

On this model, there are two retaining clips under the top panel where it meets the front of the dryer. Look along the seam about an inch or so from each side. Place a putty knife in the seam where the clip is located and push straight in while lifting up. The dryer top lifts up, exposing the retaining screws that hold the front panel and door in place. The screws remove from the INSIDE of the dryer. You will need to disconnect the door switch wires and remove the lint screen BEFORE removing the front panel. Once the panel is removed, you should have access to the blower assembly and cabinet interior.

If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number you provided, all the drawings are there on how the dryer is assembled. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Testimonial: "The You Tube video you suggested was excellent. I had already muddled through the repair before I got your response, but the video showed me something I didn't do right. (so that's where that extra clip went!) So I have to tear into it again. But this time with more knowledge. Thanks very much."

I want to clean the inside of my DLG0452W. Hasn't been done in 10-11 years. This is all part of venting. It properly. Can I take the bottom panel off?


i looked up your model and it looks like you haave to remove the top panel and then the front panel to get to the inside cabinet,if on the front you do have an access panel on the bottom then yes you want to remove the bottom front panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that,then with a shop vac vac out the cabinet,then set the shop vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and blow off the motor,this way you don't have to pull the belt and drum.when that's done go to the back and remove the vent line from the dryer,if it's a long run to the outside,go outside and make sure the duct is open,no cage or screen blocking it,go back inside,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.do this once a year and your dryer will run better and last longer but mostly you won't have a fire.hope this helps.

My GE dryer model dpsb613ed1ww. Clothes won't dry as usual and I have a 1H in the display. What should I do?


1H= 1 hour delay. press the cancel button and then run the dryer with the vent tube off as if it is not drying like it use to then the vent is restricted, note this has nothing to do with the 1H. You will need to clean the vent tube out and you may want to clean the dryer out,also. You will be amazed how much lint is inside the dryer. Good Luck Tim

Have a Ge Heavy duty super capacity electric dryer, can't find model number, It's not heating well


Make sure the vent pipe is clean and with the dryer cool, clean out as much as you can from the inside the vent port. There are at least two relays on the inside of the cabinet that may have gone bad also.

How do I clean the lint from the dryer past the lint trap?


you need to unplug the dryer,then with a putty knife stick it in between the top panel and the front panel and there are clips one on each side that you release with the putty knife and remove the front panel or you could have two 5/16 inch screws on the bottom of the front panel but i believe your model has the clips,when you remove the front panel you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside cabinet where the motor is,put it back together then pull out the dryer and remove the vent line from the rear,if it's a long run to the outside you can stick a leaf blower inside the vent line and blow all the lint out to the outside hood,before you blow it out go outside and make sure the hood is clear then blow out the line,

Ge DRYER dpgt750EC2PL back wall of drum gets very hot. Occassional smell as if something starting to burn. How do I open the top lid to get inside to find out problem


This may sound a bit over simplified but when a dryer starts to get hot inside it is a sign of an airflow problem.

Start with the outside vent flapper. Check to see if there is lint build up on the flapper / louvers.

Pull off the vent hose and check for lint build up. If the vent hose is a flexible plastic hose they have a tendancy to clog with lint in the sprials and then the lint contines to build up until airflow is restricted.

After checking external vents and ducts next remove the lint filter. If you use dryer sheets wash the filter with white vinegar to remove the build up. It may appear clean but the material from the dryer sheets clogs the filters.

In the area around the lint filter check the ducting / air passages for lint build up and clean it.

In the process of all the cleaning do NOT use anything sharp. A vacuum crevice tool and a Looped metal coat hanger do wonders for cleaning assistance.

Before you reconnect the dryer vent try running the dryer with a light load of anything wet to see if it drys properly with the vent disconnected. After that reconnect the vent and repeat the same drying test to see if the drying times are close to the same.

This should solve your hot dryer problem.. If it does not then respond here and we can talk about taking your dryer apart.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i change the heating fuse for a ge spacemaker microwave


unplug first, take three screws out of top vent cover and there may even be some on the top cabinet holding vent cover on front, then you might see fuse holder just behind vent cover, if not remove screw(s) holding touch pad on, then slide touch panel up and out. it will rest on hinge, then you should see fuse holder inside behind touch panel. BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST AS ELECTRICITY CAL KILL YOU.

I need to change from a side vent to a back vent on my GE dryer


depending on model, the top gets lifted with a few screws under the main top,( after opening the door), lift the top then there should be a few screws holding the front panel to the sides, disconnect the light/door switch, and the front panel will release, reach around the lower portion of drum and disconnect the belt, remove the tub, from there youll see the vent pipe exiting ou though the side, simply reomve andrelocate out through theback, reassemble the unit and you all set!

Want to vent dryer from bottom. How do I remove the bottom/side


Unplug the dryer.
Open the dryer door.
Get on your knees and look up.
You will see 2 phillips head screws that must be removed from inside the door cavity.
Remove these screws, then the top of the dryer.
Then remove 2 screws on the right and left inside of the dryer.
Unhook the door wires and remove the front panel.

Condensation betwejn the front door glass


This would require disassembly of the door panels, which is not recommended unless really required.

You can download the installation guide to help you troubleshoot and correct your venting issues. That should be priority one.

It may be a clogged filter, a bird's nest in the outlet, etc. etc. Failure to vent can cause control panel and keypad trouble if it continues.
