My GE profile model dpgt750ec dryer will not turn on - checked breaker okay, light comes on inside the door, but no power when attempting to turn on


Recheck breaker turn the breaker all the way off and then reset the breaker. Then try a different cycle. like air only or something different than you normally use and see if it works then. Motor could be out or The control switch. Make sure you are looking at a double pole 220 breaker. hope this helps.

My ge profile dryer won't start.I checked the breakers and they were ok. Any other suggestions?


Hi,
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

I have a ge profile dryer model dpsb513eboww and the sensor dry doesn't work properly. It runs 3 minutes then shuts off. The clothes are still wet. All else works fine.


You should inside the driver and on the front or back wall will be the sensor: two metal bars that send an electric current through the clothing. When the dryer detects more current goes through, it knows the clothes are still wet and keep running. If the sensor bars are broken, disconnected, or dirty, it will read no current and think you put clothes in there that were already dry. Make sure those contacts are nice and clean. Failing that, you'll need to test the sensor circuit for voltage to see what the problem is.

Won't start all of a sudden. Power is getting to the unit, no breakers thrown. Interior light works... just won't run. What do I check first? GE model DPSR475EWOWW


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.
