Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
My dryer takes a long time to dry the clothes. It doesn't heat up very well at all and goes through the cycle, stops as it should and beeps telling me the clothes are dry. The clothes are still very damp. Can you tell me how to fix this problem? We have cleaned out the venting pipes (plastic with wires in it) and checked the outside vent. Also cleaned out the inside venting system. A service call costs $75.00 and I want to avoid that. This is a GE 7 cycle electronic sensor dryer. Heavy duty super capacity, Model DDSR475ET5WW
Thank you in advance.
Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.
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.
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.
NOTE***(This unit is equipped with a dryness control board. if all points above check out ok, replace this board).
