GE DPGT750GC Gas Dryer Problem

I recently moved, and I connected my washer and dryer in my new home. Washer works great. Dryer, connections are good, I have power, but the screen says" Notice there is a problem with this unit. Please call..." Is there a reset button on this model? why does this message usually come on? and what can i do or check on to make this message dissappear? Thanks!

Re: GE DPGT750GC Gas Dryer Problem

I made the 'Guest' post last night, and have since found more info.

You can enter service mode by:
1. Power on (press 'POWER')
2. Press (and release) 'HOME' (will beep twice I think but doesn't matter)
3. Press (and release) 'HELP' (again with the beeps)
4. Press (and hold) 'MY CYCLES' and 'BACK' together (hold for ~3 seconds)

It will then give you more detailed info as to the specific problem, plus suggestions for what to check. When you exit service mode (via on-screen 'EXIT' touchbutton), it will tell you that you have to unplug the dryer to reset it. After replugging, it will run a setup/diagnostic which tests the door switch, panel buttons, touchscreen, beeper, motors, heating, etc.

Good luck!

Replaced rollers and not getting message that door is not closed and wont work

This has happened to me before.?? To replace the rollers you most likely had to disassemble the whole dryer. Now the first thing I would check is to see if you connected the door switch back or if you connected it wrong.

Are you having problems with your GE Profile Harmony but don't know where to start to troubleshoot? Let the dryer do it for you, here's how:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

The system will give you a description of possible hardware failure and troublecode.

Replace the failed piece of hardware and plug your system back in. It will go through a boot-up sequence and verify that your machine is working once again.

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

I have a GE profile harmony gas dryer that says "a problem has been detected call 1-800-GE-Cares' on the display. I just finished putting in the new dryer drum that fell apart. Any suggestions? Reset...

If there were no problems before replacing drum I would go back and make sure all 3 wiring connections are made behind the door panel. From there this machine is too complex to diagnose over the phone.

GE Profile Harmony Gas dryer blower fan comes on intermittently

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

Screen says a problem was detected, call service. can this be bypassed to allow the dryer to be run at all? right now none of the buttons allow me to do anything.

I went to GE's website and found the solution there. Just enter "problem detected service" in the search bar and use the result for the washer - it's the same diagnostic tool. Follow the instructions and you're good to go.

Converting back to nat gas from propane

Typically, conversion from natural to propane and visa-versa is just a simple connection behind the appliance. Look in the box of the conversion kit (or on the back of the packaging,) and you should see the conversion instructions. Since you are dealing with gas, you need to make sure the shut-off valve is... shut off so no gas can leak while do the exchange. Also, make sure there are not open flames anywhere near the work area. Take your time and follow the directions...

Dryer is acting up. so, it hasnt been used in about 2 months.  it sat out in a cold garage.  but was back up to 'room temp' when we hooked it up.  the gas line is secure.  the venting is proper.  the dryer's level.   after turning it on, not much has happened.  a faint 'beeping' signal comes out of it every few seconds or so, and signal lasts about 2 secs.  the dryer will tumble and kinda gets a weak luke-warm.  i heard this clicking (blower motor i think) as if it were a rotating clicking noise.  then i heard what sounded like a piece of plastic drop.  then poof! the blower kicked on and the dryer started crankin'! working great.  thought maybe something needed to settle.   note* i did have this dryer on its side while moving it in the back of my pick-up truck.  (which was covered from the elements w/ a cap & laid on soft blankets).* after several uses some serious noises started coming out of it.  a severe clicking rotating plastic thumping, sounded like hard plastics banging, clicking rotating, hard to explain.. i reset the dryer.  now it starts up, and just rotates, blower never kicks on.  doesnt really get hot, back to a weak luke-warm.  (i threw a wet towel in there..nothing, no heat/blower)  nothing going through the vent either.  so..i was thinking about pulling the back off, but figured i'd ask you guys first. also, do you think it's worth it to call in a Sears professional?  costs involved?   yeah man, any help would be appreciated, the thing's out of warranty, and well..i need a working dryer, full household.  laundry piles up!   - thx, Angelo
