Question about GE Profile DPSR475EW Dryer
First, find your breaker box and locate the breaker that runs the dryer. Now flip the breaker off and then back on. Now try the dryer. If it made not change. Gain access to the back of dryer. There is a small panel toward the bottom that you can take off. After unplugging the dryer, take the little panel off. Look inside and check the belt. Make sure it is tight and still going around the motor shaft and pulley. With this model, there is a switch that turns the dryer off so that it will not run when the belt comes off. If the belt is on, you will have a bad thermal fuse and bad cycling thermostat. The thermal fuse is located on the top of the element housing and the cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing. When the cycling thermostat goes out the dryer then cycles on the thermal fuse until it goes bad. This then cuts the power on one leg of the 220V coming to the dryer. Remember, a dryer runs off of 220vs. This consist of two 110v legs. The element is the only component inside the dryer that works off of both 110v legs. Some component work off of one leg and the other component work off the other. When you loose one leg, some things will work and others will not. I hope this makes since. It's the best way I can explain it. If I can explain any of this or help anymore, please send a comment back to me.
Please rate solution and good luck.
