How do I clean lint from inside GE Harmony Profile Dryer?

You have to remove the panel. The assume the lint filter works better then they usually do and do not make it easy to open up and clean inside. You may have to open it from the back side which does open up to allow repairs, etc.

Hi my dryer has difficulty in starting to turn the drum at times and just buzzes also it has recently started squeaking. What parts do I need to sort this out. Thanks

Your dryer just needs a new drive-motor and some grease/oil. It would also be a good time to replace the belt. There is an idler pulley that will squeak if it is not oiled. Also, the drum connects to back of the case using a ball joint, it will require cleaning and re-greasing. Make sure to get the vacume out and clean everything on the inside of the unit(even try to get inside the blower case to clean out all of the lint).

Gas Dryer lights but not drying. I have a White Westinghouse gas dryer on natural gas. It has a new vent hose and the filter screen is very clean and the vent area in the door is very clean. I even...

Sounds like the dryer coils are failing. The dryer may heat up in the beginning but once it runs for a few minutes the coils fail to open and let gas in. Check to see if you can hear the flame ignite after it has been running for a little while.

Kenmore gas dryer heats for several minutes ,then goes cold

I'm haveing the same problem with my frididaire gas dryer. I replaced the ignitor and cleaned the inside parts with a vacume and still having similar problems as yours. I think I will replace the temp. sensor that is attached to the flame tube inside the dryer next. To gain access to the inside parts you will need a putty knife to release the top panel. Just slide the putty knife along the top seam in front of the drryer. There are 2 clips that realease the top peice. With the top lifed up you will see 2 phillips head screws attaching the front panel to the dryer. Remove those screws and lift upwards and the front panel will lift right off the unit.carefully place the front panel to the side without damageing any wires attached. Then all your gas assembly parts will be visable in the bottom left cornner of the unit.

hope this helps,

My heating mechanism is not working. The air

there are different configurations but it may be the overheat fuse. (some machines won't start at all if its blown) if you look at the circuit diagram which is usually on the back panel inside or outside it will show you where it is. If you have a meter its easy to check. (under $10 and easy to change)

Not drying

common cause for dryer taking to long to dry, (vent related issue) so long as thats be rectified, the next issue would be to look into replacing the coils atop the burner vale, part number 279834, retail for about $20, easy enough to change. although they appear to open the gas valve initially, after running for 30 min or so they overheat and no longer open the valve, extending dry time.
