Pushed start switch and making huming noise and won't start ge gas clothes dryer model dvlr223gg8ww


Hi,

In most cases the motor is seized or something is preventing it from spinning (seized drum wheel for example).

open the door and check the door switch,push it in and out,it should click when you push it in,if the door switch is broke it won't start,also if the dryer has been taking longer to dry the clothes and hasn't been taken apart and cleaned out either the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats could have blown,all a dryer does is move air,if lint blocks up the vent line or in the dryer duct where the lint filtr slides into the dryer runs hot and one of the fuses or thermostats will pop as a safety.if you live in mass. peter de's is a good appliance corp. to call,781-438-9442

I HAVE A GE DRYER THE MOTOR SHUTS OFF WHEN YOU RELEASE THE START BUTTON AND THE DRUNM WONT ROTATE


there's a broken belt switch connected to the belt idler pulley,(when this belt breaks the switch opens) located down by the motor and it kills the power to the dryer when the belt breaks so the heating element cant get the clothes too hot to burn the clothes when the drum cannot rotate properly

The dryer starts without using the start knob when you open and close the dryer door during a cycle. The dial is also not advancing during the dry cycle and the clothes are taking a long time to dry.


Assuming that you have GE dryer DBXR463ED0WW,
Sounds like there is a couple of problems there:
  1. The start switch is stuck and needs replacement/repair, part number WE4X881
  2. The clothes taking too long to dry may be due to a) clogged dryer vent; b) one or both heater coils burnt out; part numbers: WE11X10007 for restring coils only or WE11M23 for whole heater assembly c) problem with temperature selector switch, part number WE4M407
  3. There might be a problem with timer (WE4M271), but before replacing it I'd suggest taking care of the long dry problem first. In some models, timers are wired that way so the timer advances only when there is heat, so check the schematic.
There should be a schematic diagram inside the control panel, use it to for diagnosing the problems you described.

Good luck,
Vlad

Dryer won't stay running


I had the same problem with my kemore. Thank goodness I still had it under warranty.
The tech said the door latch was just slightly ajar. This is common he said that when we take clothes out we let the door close to hard or gets ajar for leaning in to take clothes out.
He readjusted it and I have never had a problem with it again.
Hope this helps

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.


I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.
