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.

GE heavy duty dryer - I pulled the knob off and turning the shaft with pliars, but now the shaft is broken too. How can I fix it???

These are very easy to work on. I threw one out a few years ago, everything worked on it apart from the motor! Look for a home appliance spares retailers close to you or order online. from someone like here

Specifically, this is the part but you have to input the right model number.

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.

Dryer won't spin, but heats up - belt is okay

the motor may have seized up, or the drum bearings are shot.
