Blower does not blow on profile dryer GE Profile dryer drum turns heats but does not dry


the clip that holds the fan on the back shaft of the motor may have broken so the fan isn't turning, check that , but first check the duct and make sure that you don't have a ball of lint clogging the vent,, also check the venting all the way out of the house,, clean the overhang of the outside vent cover, they get moist and collect lint

I cant get the fan off of the electric motor in my clothes dryer, i have the motor loose from the base and it moves around but i cant tell how the fan is fastened to the motor shaft and i cant get it off


Most of these are reverse threaded. There should be a place on the shaft that is flat on 2 sides a1/2" or 9/16" wrench will fit into the slots. Hold the wrench stationary with the fan facing you turn clockwise.
I know this sounds backwards but it should work.
Hope this helps

Igniter only glows on permanent press cycle and not timed cycles


I unplugged the ignitor and put the leads from my multi meter into the plug to monitor the signal to the ingnitor. I got 120 volts only when I turned the timer switch counter clockwise or to the permanent press cycle. When I turned the switch clockwise or to the timed cycle I wouldn't get the voltage to the ignitor. While in the timed cycle, I turned the switch counter clockwise and as I started counter clockwise pressure on the switch knob I got 120 volts to the ignitor. There is a little play in the switch and when taking up the play in the counter clockwise direction the switch would engize the ignitor. The timer switch is bad.

Remove blower blade from motor


A guy who has been repairing these for twenty+ years told me sometimes the blower fan is just too tight to remove. If so, you have to use a screwdriver or punch from the motor side and literally break the plastic fan apart. I thought that was going to be my problem, but..... With wrench tightly fastened to the nut at the back of the motor and resting against the post of the rubber wheel, I put a sturdy wrench on the shaft at the front of the motor and whacked it in a clockwise direction with a hammer. It snapped and came loose! Hooray. Try that before you demolish the blower fan.
