GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot

Any idea why it's not getting hot? I noticed that the exhaust hose in the had come undone. I read somewhere here about dust on the heating element or a fuse?

The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.

Ge dryer way too hot. I have cleaned all the lint out but still way too hot. unplugged vent hose and ran machine still too hot. Took apart machine and tested continuity of heating element and its fine....


I do not know your definition of "way too hot". Remove the exhaust vent and insert a accurate thermometer in the dryer exhaust. Run the dryer on high heat. The temperature should get up to 165 degrees then cool down to about 125 degrees then back up to 165.
If it goes above 165 and stays there replace the high limit thermostat.
If it cycles correctly it is OK.

MY DRYER IS NOT GETTING HOT IN THE INSIDE BUT THE OUTER BACK SIDE OF THE DRYER IS


Is your drum turning? Sounds like blower has stopped working. Or vent is plugged.
Lets check blower. Remove big exhaust hose. Now see if air is blowing out hard. DON'T put your hand in hole. If air is flowing blower is okay. So check the hose may need cleaned. Hopefully Hose is blocked.
Always unplug before removing any covers.

GE DWSR463EGWW electric dryer takes forever to dry clothes. Heating element comes on but then goes off. Where do I locate the thermal fuse if that is the problem.


The thermal fuse only shuts off the elements if the proper air flow isn't acheived. If the clothes are hot but still damp after the drying cycle then you have a blockage in the dryer exhaust either at the hose at the back of the machine or in the lint filter area. Check both and clean and your problem should be solved.

Hope this helped you
