Zippers get caught in seal around dryer door and twist around and break off


I had the same problem with zippers and socks. Solution was as simple as replacing the felt seal at the top of the dryer door.The drum rides on the felt seal that has plastic guides imbedded in it. It's function is to seal and more importantly act as a guide for the drum.
Check the drum at the front edge if the gap around it is not the same or if the drum is wobbley when you lift it by hand that is probably the problem.
You will need to open the dryer cabinet. Mine had 2 catch springs at the front top edges that were released by pressing with a thin flat object that will fit between the top and bottom cabinet(butter knife). Once the top can be lifted you may find a couple of screws that secure the front panel and door. Once removed the front panel can be popped off and lifted out (careful of door switch wires).At this point you csn see the felt at the top of the door . It is glued in place and is easily removed. your local appliance part supplier can supply you with a replacement that comes with the glue and installation instructions.
Put the dryer back together and no more burnt socks and ruined zippers.

REMOVE FRONT PANEL - ZIPPER PARTS STUCK IN DRUM GUIDE.


I found the parts manual on line at GE Appliances.

The replacement parts for the top indicated pictured two clips holding the front of the dryer in place.

I tried a narrow screw driver on the clips and that released the top.

With the top off, removing the front panel required removing two screws, lifting the drum and pulling slightly on the front panel.

After removing the wires from the door switch, I was able to find the broken zipper, clean out the fan, remove excess lint and reassemble.

GE dryer is getting louder when running


most common cause is the failure, or wear of the rollers at the rear,
the drive belt places a lot of torque on the drum, and it has rollers to support this force, in addition to nylon guides as the front has

good roller

worn roller

most dryers access from the front, the front panel and door come off,
here are generic removal instructions

with dryer unplugged examine lower front panel.
If there are two screws at lower corners
  • remove screws
  • swing front panel up from bottom
  • unhook top clips
  • undo door switch wires
  • set panel and door aside
If there are no screws
  • remove llint screeen from top
  • remove 2 screws from under lint screen
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade
    push spring clips at front top corners
  • tilt top up
  • remove 1 screw each side 1/3 way from top of dryer
  • tilt front panel down
  • undoor door switch wires
  • set front panel aside
Common to both
  • reach under drum to belt tensioner, pull tensioner to end of spring travel
  • unhook belt from motor and tensioner
  • withdraw drum forward
  • examine rollers felts nylon guides
replace rollers in pairs if worn
replace nylon glides if worn
replace felts if worn, the back one may wear before the front one, if the dryer is the open drum type,

Drum makes a clunking sound when rotating, even when empty


This machine has roller wheels in the front that are not adjustable, but rather need to be replaced if they have a bad spot or something. Usually what I see with a clunking noise(clunks once or maybe two quick clunks in succession) is that the dryer has been set down hard on the ground and has put two dents in the roller surface of the drum. To check this, just unplug it, pop the top off (3 screws in the back and tilt it up) and look at the very front edge of the drum. rotate the drum by hand (carefully so you dont pop off the belt) and look for any imperfections in the suface, such as dents. If you are getting more of a vibration type of noise, I would also suggest taking off the lower front cover then taking of the blower wheel cover located to the left side and checking that there is no lint built up in the blower wheel as well. Good Luck!
