Question about GE DVL223EBWW Electric Dryer
Reverify the wiring terminal connections per the schematic inside the top panel. After verification you should check the door switch for an audible click as the door is just opened or closed. If that appears to be working then the motor switch on the outside of the motor has failed.
If you have a meter check the input wire to the timer from the door switch for power. If there is no power you will need to follow the schematic and check to see if there is power to the motor switch.
Here is a typical dryer schematic:
The power on almost every basic dryer goes from L1 on the terminal block to the door switch, then to the push to start switch, then the motor and finally to the neutral connection of the terminal block. If you do not have this power anywhere go to the main CB panel and turn off the breakers (Physically push the breaker to OFF) and then back on. Recheck for power L1 to N (120V), L2 to N (120V) and then L1 to L2 (240V) If you have these voltages after resetting the Main Panel CB your dryer has the correct input power.
If you need more assistance after rechecking the timer connections per the schematic inside the top panel and verifying power just respond here and I will do my best to help you.
