If the knob does not go down all the way, it wont turn. Try removing the knob and adding a tiny ball of aluminum foil inside the knob (this will allow you to push the knob a little bit further down). Good luck!

What can cause an electric GE dryer to not start? Model number DCVH680EJ1WW. cogtinuity with motor switch, door switch, high limit fuse, thermistor & no cogn. with the thermodisc or heating element.


As a repair technician, just came across this crazy situation with GE / Hot Point / Moffat machines several times. It is all made by GE corporation.



The Dryer is not starting because your cycle selector knob is broken inside and it is just turning without turning the timer selector.



GE corporation machines are good. But those damn chinese plastic knobs break from inside. I have driven 50 km to find out the knob is broken. I had to charge the poor customer.

Starter knob on GE dryer came off. Dryer won't turn on.


If it turns hard, the timer may need replaced. But if you can turn the shaft with a pair of pliers and the dryer works, just get a new knob.

We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to replace the knob. However, replacing it turns out to be easy.

Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.

Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.

Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!
