Question about General Electric DHDSR46EGWW Dryer

1 Answer

When I first turn on my dryer nothing happens like I have a blown fuse. When I unplug and plug cord back in light comes back on and dryer either "hiccups" and loses power or runs for a half cycle before shutting off again. It is powered by the older three prong style cord. I'm stumped.

Turn the breaker off (or remove fuses) at electical box. Remove cover from dryer recepticle and look for loose wire(s) or other sings of a poor connection. If all good there, check for the same at the circuit breaker / fuse box. Also check that the power cord connections are tight where it attaches to the dryer.

Microwave has no power, no lights, nothing at all. Yes it is plugged in, and yes, the outlet has 115v going to it.


unplug the oven, remove the cabinet if you feel confident in doing this. next, follow the cord from the microwave's cabinet input and look for a fuse. Little round rectangular tube. It is about a half to 3/4 inch long. look on the fuse, it will have a rating like 3a/120v or 5a/120v what ever it is, replace it with the correct value. remember MAKE SURE THE CORD TO THE OVEN IS UNPLUGGED AND USE ONE HAND TO REMOVE IT USE A PAIR OF NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS, MAKE SURE OTHER HAND IS IN YOUR POCKET. After replacing fuse, and putting case to oven back on
Plug it back in, turn on the power and try the oven. if nothing happens then take to a repair center. remember before going inside after cover is off,power off, hand in pocket and touch nothing else only the fuse. if you don't feel confident with this , take the oven to a repair shop. probably fuse is blown. good percentage of ovens are thrown out because no one knows this.

My maytag dryer model HYE346OAZW is not working at all no light comes on no timer no heat, nothing


I would suggest checking the breaker first. You might want to turn breaker to off and back to on if it does not look like it has tripped. I have seen them trip but not all the way to off. If breaker has not tripped I would check to make sure the power cord is plugged in completely and is not loose in the back of the dryer. If cord is alright then there is a possibility of an internal fuse that could have blown. Hope this helps.

We replaced our heating element on model number 110.63022101 and now nothing will turn on. The light won't even come on. We have flipped both breakers already with no success. Could something be wrong...


If the dryer worked before replacing the heating element .

Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)This I would check first....Good luck Hope this helps you out

Lights come on and drum tries to start but nothing happens


First you should try turning off the power to it for a few minutes and turning it back on. It might be fixed then. If it's not a problem with the electronic controller, it sounds like either the machine needs to be cleaned and lubricated, or the motor is failing. If you're comfortable with working under the hood, start by unplugging the dryer and removing the back and top panels. You could try tightening the belt if applicable, cleaning out excess lint, oiling the bearings, check that all the wires are firmly plugged in, and that no fuses inside are blown. If the motor's having trouble starting it could be a bad starter capacitor.

Whirlpool sport dryer wont start lights come on when you push start button sounds like its activating but wont start is it aproblem with the button not sending the right signal


If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house 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.

Door switch 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.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring 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.
