Check the door switch. If it is bad, loose, or faulty, the machine won't start. You can test the switch with an ohmmeter. They are a common problem causer, especially in a no-start senario

    That could be a relay clicking. Do you get any water flow at all? Hopefully you don't have the common control board failure.

Why doesn't the dryer stay running when I let go of the start switch?


Hi, There is only one reason I can see the dryer stops after you let off on the start switch is the motor because GE motors has start switches either built inside the motor which is non removable or built outside the motor which can be replaced .
Its called a motor start switch and the way to locate it is to remove the front panel on the dryer and remove the drum and belt and then write down the motor model number and look at all the wires that go into the motor which is your motor start switch that is held in by two screws but before you remove it don't forget to copy the wire down on piece of paper of how you remove them .
If you don't see a black switch to the motor then its built in and the motor needs to be replaced.

The dryer starts without using the start knob when you open and close the dryer door during a cycle. The dial is also not advancing during the dry cycle and the clothes are taking a long time to dry.


Assuming that you have GE dryer DBXR463ED0WW,
Sounds like there is a couple of problems there:
  1. The start switch is stuck and needs replacement/repair, part number WE4X881
  2. The clothes taking too long to dry may be due to a) clogged dryer vent; b) one or both heater coils burnt out; part numbers: WE11X10007 for restring coils only or WE11M23 for whole heater assembly c) problem with temperature selector switch, part number WE4M407
  3. There might be a problem with timer (WE4M271), but before replacing it I'd suggest taking care of the long dry problem first. In some models, timers are wired that way so the timer advances only when there is heat, so check the schematic.
There should be a schematic diagram inside the control panel, use it to for diagnosing the problems you described.

Good luck,
Vlad

GE electric dryer wont start


The first thing I would do is check your door switch. When the door closes it hits a switch to tell the machine it's safe to start.

Hope this helps!?

Non-existent model number


That Sounds More Like A Serial Number. Can you Maybe Locate A Part Number On The Switch?
Also Why Did You Determine Its The Switch?

Hi! msbjs
Sound like this could be a motor problem. Is there a lot of lint inside the dryer and around the motor?
