Question about GE DPSR610GGWT Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer stays hot

I used the automatic setting and dryer remains hot after it had stopped, very hot. The odd thing is it remains hot on top, not the door or below door. It did not cool down until I unplugged it. Called GE of course they say it is 3 years old so the problem is mine. I think it could be a manufacture problem.

Hello, I'm going to assume this is a Electric dryer since you did not mention :) Ok your problem is with your heating coil. Basically what has happend is the coil has broken and the end that is wired strait to the electric supply is touching the chassis of where the heater is located, You should replace the heating coil and this will solve your problem :) You have a nice day and if there is anything else i can help you with please feel free to comment again. Thanks for using Fixya!! Mike

Dryer continues to run past the preset time.

If you are not running the load on "Time Dry", the machine will automatically use the sensor dry settings. Meaning that it automatically adjusts dry time with the dampness of the load. If you look near the time window you will notice that it says "est. time remaining". If you would like to have the unit run for just 20 minutes use the time dry button you will notice the dryness level light will turn off. The means your unit does not care how wet or dry the clothes are it will just run for 20 minutes. Hope this helped explain things.

On our older model Kenmore dryer - the heat does not seem to be venting properly - the top of the dryer gets very hot to the touch, yet the exhaust vent duct is not hot. The exhaust duct is not plugged....

Ths may sound odd BUT if your using dryer sheets the lint filter will appear clean but will actually restrict air flow. Wash it with white vinegar then soap and water / rinse. Also once you have the lint filter removed take a GOOD flash light and look deep down into the lint filter area for lint build up. If you see anything you can use a folded metal coat hanger and a crevice tool for cleaning.

One other thing to try is run a small load of clothes with the vent disconnected and check the top of the dryer temp. If it is cooler than before then there is a restirction somewhere in the external to the dryer ducting. If it is still the same i.e HOT then take that flashlight and look inside the dryer duct as deep as you can for any sign of lint.

The last thing to check is the amount of exit airflow pressure there is from the dryer. The airflow should push a relaxed hand / wrist / forearm away from the exit hole. If it is not doing this then there is still a restriction inside the dryer somewhere. It could also be the blower wheel is not turning at full speed. When the hub of the blower wheel cracks it will sometimes float on the motor output shaft and not turn at normal speed.

That is about it for now... I sure would appreciate some form of feed back on what you found.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Maytag electric dryer (PYE2300AYW) does not stop on auto cycle.

Either the control board or the humidity sensor is bad.

The dryer will not stay on the hot setting for very long, it will shut itself off after about 5 mins. it will stay on for the other 2 heat setting but not the hot setting. please help

You need to check your high limit switch with it located on the vent pipe on the back of the system. The limit switch is saying that your Dryer is getting to hot when it may be or may not be. Most of the time it is not getting to hot. Just when it notices heat it will shut itself off. The other thing that i recommend is that you clean your lint trap and vent pipe all the way to outside.

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed

Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

Dryer wont stay on... it appears to have intermittent heat.

You have a broken belt. This dryer is complimacated but here goes.Remove the console screwsand flip the control panel upwards simular to what they do on washers. Remove the 3 screw in the rear that hold the top and get the top off. Pop the bottom panel and back off the screws holding the front on then remove the screws from inside the top. You can get the front off now. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Oil all 4 wheels and idler. You will note the micro switch below the idler. that stops the drum from turning when the belt breaks. You will be a pro if you can fix this one.

Dryer stays hot hours after using it

The heater has failed and/or is shorting to the case. Remove the rear panel. The heater is on the right side, attached to the heater housing with two screws.
