Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My GE Elec. dryer just started doing this 2 days ago.

Can't believe my dryer isn't working . The darn thing is only 3 1/2 years old!!! The man at a repair shop up the road said it sounds like a burned out motor and they cost at least $300!!!! Sickening! My aunt has had the same washer and dryer for 25 years!!!!!!!

    We pulled it out and took the back panel off as well as the vent hose. Shook the hose out outside and vacuumed and wiped down the entire inside all around the drum and TADA the darn thing works!!! Don't know if it was just super dirty, the hose was cripmped something was lodged and was unstuck while moving, but I don't care I can dry again!!!!

Registration of my washer and dryer, which are the worst appliances I have ever bought in my life.

Dear Sue,
Aha! You have found out the secret!
You are correct.
However, there are a few things you can do.
Until he passed away recently, I was best friends with an appliance parts man, who shared that the time of the "turn for the worse" was about 20 years ago.
2 things happened at that time.
1) The USA seriously began to buy everything possible overseas., and
2) Companies using computers began to use those to figure how to squeeze every last penny from the manufacturing process to make more money.
This meant making parts cheaper/ making parts to last only until the warranty was up. ( 60 days?/90 days?/one year?).
Your option?
Buy reliable old machines that will still last for 20 -- 40 years, and you will need to retain the services of an honest repair man to fix them when needed service every few years.
In the mean time, the company "Consumer's Reports" ( they publish a magazine) is what I go by to see what is still marginally good.
God bless your efforts.

The dryer works fine but it randomly turns on and starts beeping. Any ideas?

I would be suspicious of a defective touch screen first. If you would like me to upload a service manual and work along with you on this then please let me know.

No heat. Elec. power OK. 12 years old


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

My dryer is not working, a repair man said that

Its sad to say. But most of the new machine's break in the first 2 to 5 years. your console probably is electronic. I did a washer today that was only 3 years old and had same problem $297.00 for the repair.

If we can help you with something. let us know. Make sure to give us the model and make of your machine.

Have a good day

Blue Haze in middle of screen progressively getting larger

This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks
