Dryer gets warm and tumbles but clothes do not dry. Is there a fan assembly that is not working?


Since this is an electric dryer, if it gets warm, that usually means that the heater is working. The drum tumbles so that tells you the motor is working. Which leaves a few things. Clogged exhaust vents could cause it, and even a dirty lint trap could effect it. But on your GE I would most suspect either the thermostat that is located in the dryer blower unit (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/GE-Parts/Dryer-Parts/WE04X10028/0026/363/Model-DVL223EB6WW/0432/0151200?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=G0407006&diagramPageId=00004&productTypeId=0151200&searchModelNumber=DVL223EB6WW&subCompDesc=Motor&brandDesc=GE&modelDesc=ELECTRIC-DRYER&blt=11) or the blower unit itself. Now remember that the blower is driven by the motor (which also turns your drum - so the thermostat becomes the most likely suspect. It is 1315 on the parts breakdown to give you an indication of where it is located.

My ge dvl223ebww electric dryer won't start,but does hum when the start switch is turned.what are the causes?


Do an inspect. themobilian_2149.jpg
The top will come on off. Check the drum glides for wear
themobilian_2150.jpg
Once them glides wear out yall will be pinching the drum and causing motor stall.
With the top off you can sometimes push start and give it a little help to get it going and then listen out for signs of wear to the glides and bearing in the rear.

My dryer wont start. When i turn the button to start it, it hums but wont run.


something is jamming the drum of the dryer from turning... remove the casing and take a closer look. There may also have been something recently dried which may have come out and jammed the dryer drum. Try hand turning the dryer drum to see... it should freely revolve at least a little bit
Good luck with it

MY DRYER IS NOT GETTING HOT IN THE INSIDE BUT THE OUTER BACK SIDE OF THE DRYER IS


Is your drum turning? Sounds like blower has stopped working. Or vent is plugged.
Lets check blower. Remove big exhaust hose. Now see if air is blowing out hard. DON'T put your hand in hole. If air is flowing blower is okay. So check the hose may need cleaned. Hopefully Hose is blocked.
Always unplug before removing any covers.

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat


Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...
