Question about Dryers

1 Answer

How do I get inside a GE dryer (DVLR223)? There is a repetative "thup, thup, thup" sound when it runs. The top on my previous Kenmore dryer had clips that helt it to the cabinet, and just prying the top up with a putty knife would raise the top, but this unit appears to be more stuborn, like it is screwed down. Any ideas?

On a GE typically, there are 2 screws located in the top of the dryer dorr as you open it. After you remove those screws, the top will pop up just like the kenmore.

Either your belt is broken or the broken belt micro switch has failed.Or something is pinching the tub and stalling the motor so that it won't go into run mode. OR the motor is gone. No way to tell without taking a look see. I have a service pictorial HERE

Dryer is over heating and cuts off


This will occur if the running thermostat is stuck closed. This thermostat will be located inside the dryer on the vent duct or blower housing. it must be replaced in order to restore normal functions.

Also, improper ventilation can cause this as well. have the entire vent assembly cleaned asap.

Need to replace the front felt seal - GE gas dryer


since you got the top opened, now look inside the front panel toward top remove screws or hex screws now you can remove the front panel. Undo the door switch wires before removing the front panel. The felt seal should be glued to the front panel aroun the opening to the drum you should be able to tell where it was.

Dryer no heating how do I get to the fuses and the heating elemet


using a wide flat screw driver pry the top up at the edges betwenn the main top and the front panel. Lay it down on it's back for this. Now look for your door switch wires and undo them. Now look inside the front panel toward the top and remove 2 attaching screws or hex screws. Lift panel at top and remove. Now undo 3 screws in middle of inside drum and pull drum out after un-doing belt. There you should find your heat element and all the thermostats and the thermal fuse should be labeled. If heat element is not broken then chances are your thermal fuse is bad replace it

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?

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
