My GE Whirlpool Duet dryer which is only about two years old is not putting out any heat


Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...

GE Front loader doesn't dry clothes completely.


Hello there:
f yourdryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied withthe proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is gettingto your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, checkthe circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are inthe correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in yourfuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is notgetting to your dryer.

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could bethe reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinetand test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replacethem.

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up.Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as itshould, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

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

My GE Spacemaker Dryer Model WSM 2700 DA no longer heats up. HOw difficult is it to change the heater element or is that the problem? P.S. I have cleaned all the vents out with very little material found.


either the heating element, hi-limit switch, thermal fuse (on some), cycling switch,or a burned neutral power wire in the unit, first, make sure you have 240 volts input power

My dryer runs and turns but doesnt heat up or dry clothes


It sounds like you may need a GE element part number WE11M23. this is a common problem and can be replaced by taking out the drum and exposing the large circular heating element. the thermostats on the heater housing can usually be re-used. secondly check you house fuses as this can save you alot of grief. it is possible that simply a wire has been burned or your cycling thermostat is gone. I would need a model number in order to give you a part number for this. hope this helps.

Thanks

GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer not heating up


Check the air flow from the vent-if there is no air or very weak air flow, it is the blower motor. It is not getting up to speed or not spinning at all. Try this:
Press "Home"
Press "Help"
Simultaneously press and hold down BOTH
"My Cycles" and "Back"
After a few seconds the dryer will enter service mode and report any problems.

GE DVLR223 Not Heating--Is there a reset?


There is no reset. What he did was probably replace the thermal fuse. Why did he not clean it out for ya? Anyway when the thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer or the heat won't work. If you can open the dryer up by removing the front panel, you can test your thermal fuse for continuity. If none replace it. While you have the front off undo your belt and remove the 3 screws that secure the rear of the drum (inside drum in middle at back) pull drum out and make sure heat element is not broken. Here is a site for your dryer check it out. www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-dvlr223-%3d%3d&z=100 Good Luck
