Question about GE DCSR483EA Electric Dryer

2 Answers

I just put a brand new heating coil in my electric dryer and now when I run it and then open the door there is a red glow from the back of the dryer. I am guessing this is because it is brand new, but just wanted to get any other opinions. thanks!

Good day,
That is normal if it was running when you checked it. Once the machine shuts off, it should go out.
If it stays on the wiring was performed wrong, or the element is shorting to the housing it mounts in. You would have to disassemble the machine and check the heater for proper installation.

If the red glow is staying on the element is grounding against the metal some where and needs to be checked immediately. This is a fire hazard if not taken care of asap.

First check to see that the exhaust venting line is clear (not full of lint) as well as the path in the dryer to the line. This is the most common cause of no heat.
Second set the knob to heat turn on dryer with the lights off and the door open but the "open door" switch so that it still rotates with the door open. Look at the back of the rotating drum for a orange/red glow behind the drum (the heater coils). If there is no glow the heater coils are probably broken.
As the dryers age, the amount of thermal cycles the heater elements go through until the point when the coil wire breaks. There usually two heater coils behind the rotating drum (one hotter than the other and when combined the hottest heat temperature setting. You will need to pop open the top where you see the belt that turns the drum. The belt is removed from the spring loaded tensioner pulley at the base of the dryer. Then you can lift the drum out to get to the heater coils. Since no heat, both should be broken and will require replacement.

DOESN'T HEAT


Could be bad heat element. Lift top of dyer, or look from back side with access panel removed, or look thru door if glass door while dryer is running on a heat cycle. You should be able to see red glow of heat element coming on. If not then you will need to open up dyer and remove drum. Inspect heat element for break in coil or coils touching each other or metal frame of dryer. You can also use an ohm meter and read the restence of the coil ...should be just a couple of ohms.
If it is a bad coil you should be able to replace fairly easy. If it is not coil than you will need to check themistor or cycle control switch. Hope this helps.

You can put this machine into the field service mode to view the errors here is how to do that.
  • Turn the dryer on.
  • Go to the home screen.
  • Press help.
  • Press and hold my cycles and back simultaneously for 3 seconds.
Once done you can view the errors, post what it says. Note that once you exit this mode it will erase the errors so write them down.

Check the "Bias thermostat" for continuity with a multimeter. IF it is bad, replace with this part.

It doesn't heat up and it's not the breaker.


may be heater coil, located inside machine on back right side. unplug dryer, open dryer door and remove screws, with a flat tip screw drive gently pry on each top corner till it pops off, gently move panel forward and disconnect door switch. sit panel aside, lift top all the way up it is clipped on the back so it will not fall off. look to the back and right and the coil looks like a spring, it is easy to change, all you need to do is will the make and model call a appliance store and they can tell the price for a new one. good luck tim

How to replace ge dryer heating element


you will need to remove the drum for this one.  once it is out, the element is mounted on the back of the unit.  not a hard repair, just lay out the parts as you take it apart to give you some order as you re-assemble it.
