There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

GE Harmony dryer does not power on. Light works-


This is an easy check, and it might fix your problem, though it also may be something else. Turn the circuit breaker for your dryer outlet off, then back on. The circuit breaker will be located in the main breaker panel of the house. It should be labeled "dryer" or something like that. It will be a double breaker, meaning that there are two breakers tied together physically.

I am wondering if one of the two breakers has lost contact or tripped. That could possibly allow the light to work, but prevent the motor and heat from working.

It's an easy check, and there is a chance this is all that is needed.

There are other possibilities, but this is a very easy noe to check, so why not start here?

Dryer trips circuit breaker smell almost like something burning coming from dryer


In order to trip a circuit breaker, there is almost for sure, a dead short to ground. Takes quite a bit to trip a breaker. The smell is most likely something electrical burning. Stop resetting the breaker and have it checked out. Continous resetting and tripping can cause more damage. The breaker is doing it's job.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn
DON'T FORGET TO RATE;

Ge dryer not heating


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Both broken?


sounds like an electrical issue for sure, too coincidental that both would stop functioning at asime time, they are independent units and should work separately . i would check your breakers, perhaps it has partially tripped

GE Dryer DBL333EAOWW


Did the Dryer work before? What led to this problem? Most Electric dryers work on 240 Volts. And have their own seperate circuit breaker, usually marked as "Dryer." So resetting just the main cuircuit breaker might not be enough. Did you reset the Dryer C. breaker?

GE OVEN DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY JBP69SGH2SS


I am not an expert, but this has happened to me. Examine your circuit breaker and see that it provides the amps that your oven requires. If it just barely provides it, then it could be that your circuit breaker is tripping if you have anything else on that line and it is being used. Especially hair dryers. If your circuit breaker is not tripping, you should contact GE or repair service because you may have a "power module" problem. Good luck.
