SOURCE: Taking the back off a GE dryer

You typically don't remove the back of a GE dryer. The Top comes off with 2 screws located in the top of the door opening and then the front has 2 screws that are located on the inside wall. Remove those screws and pull the front of the dryer out towards you from the top to expose the door switch and wires, disconnect those, lift up on the front and you have access to the entire inside of the shell.

SOURCE: dryer doesn't dry clothes thoroughly

Turn off your breakers, then back on to insure a good reset. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug and then to the back of the dryer. You are getting some heat which tells me that one leg of power is out. I don't think it is your element, because you get some heat. Let me know how you do.

SOURCE: G.E. electric dryer terminal block and wires are

you did not say how old? but I find that all it takes is one wire to get old, and starts to heat up because electric cant flow through it, then it gets worse and worse fast, then heats up the whole block, till the whole thing gets melted...bad thing is its happens slow enough that the standard 30 amp breaker won't trip during this slow melt down!

Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting, but I can narrow it down to two probabilities based on your description.

To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention the most likely and what to do about it.

**Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here first**

There is an auto shut off or emergency kill switch next to the motor which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped for whatever reason.

It will look like this image below and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back )...



If you`ve already taken the back of the dryer off to gain access you should have no problem.

Either Scenario I alluded to ( the other would be resetting the hi-limit cut out you already referred to, you can see through the back vent opening when the vent is removed and then by pushing the red button in...shown below ) will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.


Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

My GE dryer GFDN110EL0WW when turned on runs for 5 sec. Then cuts out after about 15 secs. It will automatically start again. And will continue this cycle until I turn the unit off.

Dear Kevin.
I surely hope you do not already know this!
Dryers today have a whole bunch of shut-offs.
Specifically, a fuse or two and several thermostats, any of which will cause your symptoms.
The most likely cause is air tubes clogged with lint, which the lint trap does not catch.
The fix should be to take the whole machine apart and clean the whole thing.
You may find as much as a shoe-box full of lint inside.
That lint has caused one of the fuses or thermostats to shut off the machine before it catches fire.
God bless your efforts.

How is the vent discharge air flow out the back of dryer? If not very strong check out lint trap cavity for blockage or obstuction causing lint to build up, blocking air flow from drum cavity. Once found a pocket comb that had got into lint trap housing and created a lint dam blocking air flow.

My dryer is a kenmore 110.61082000 and it wont start. it keeps displaying check lint screen even though it is completely clean and the sensor bar is clean. what is wrong?

The thermal fuse located on the blower housing is blown and since it is wired in series with the motor, power to the motor is terminated, the motor will not run and no dryer function works. Disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to expose the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the thermistor if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards. Let us know if you need further advice.

This is dued to lint build up in the dryers venting tubes. If you completely tear the vents off and clean them inside thoroughly it will run like ne again. It will be better to replace accordian stle tubes than to clean them if that is what you have on yours

A moister sensor detects the build up and keeps the heat in check

My ge dryer takes 5hrs to dry a load of clothes, it seems hot enough inside when i open it but the clothes used to dry in 90mins or so now its hours

Have you checked your lint filter? Do you empty your lint filter after every load? If it is hot inside the dryer then the most likely suspect is a clogged exhaust vent. Check the lint filter, if it is clean pull the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the exhaust hose. You may have to clear out the exhaust hose...compressed air usually does the trick. After you have done this, put everything back together and your problem should be gone.

Whirlpool Model LE7010XSNO. No Heat After Lint Cleaned Out

Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.
