Question about GE DBSR453GB Gas Dryer

1 Answer

GE DBSR453GB Gas Dryer doesn't dry on 1st cycle.

GE DBSR453GB Gas Dryer doesn't dry clothes at all on the first cycle. On the second cycle they sometimes dry, and sometimes it takes three cycles, then they dry just fine. It's not a gradual drying, it seems like the dryer only heats up on some, but not all, dry cycles. Any ideas? Thanks.

Tumbles but does not dry


When you put your wet cloths in the dryer close the door. You should then turn on the dry cycle you wish, not the fluff option as there will be only air and gas dryer will not heat the cloths. Wait 30 ~ seconds after the dryer is turned on and listen for the gas to ignite and begin warming and drying the cloths. If you hear no bump sound like the ignition of the gas, then you have an ignition issue. It will require replacing the ignitor. All the best and good luck. Hope this helped.

Have a Maytag Dependable Care dryer. Model MDG9606AWW. The glow bar comes on, gas lights and stays on about 30 seconds, go off for about 30-60 sec. then comes back on for about 10-18 seconds. Then goes off...


Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.


LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.

Dryer takes many cycles to get clothes dry


While researching my problem I did find that the dryer vent hose could be partially clogged. The hose should be short and horizontal.

Dryer is not functioning (It doesn´t get clothes dry)


Usually the ignightor goes out in them. If you have a meter or way of measuring it, you can take off the front panel and it'll be on your bottom left side. You can disconnect it and you should see a short. here is a link to look at and it might help in the dissasembly prosess. By the way, when you 1st turn it on, you should hear a click within seconds down my that also. If it clicks it's very much so the ignightor. Pretty easy and cheap to do. Good luck

Clothes are not drying


your blower motor is probably not working. enter the troubleshooting mode by pressing and holding my cycles and help at the same time for 3 seconds. this will tell you the problem. if blower is not getting up to speed you'll have to replace it.
