Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer

GE Dryer Question

I have a similiar dryer to the GE DBXR463EBWW , it may be the same. I can only remember the last few letters of the model number. It makes a strange noise when it turns, almost like it is having trouble turning but the speed appears the same. It stopped turning all together so I unplugged it from the wall and when I did it blew the breaker. I inspected the wiring and plugged it back into the wall and it started working again but with the same noise so we have not ran it since.

Any ideas?

GE dryer drum hits idler pulley during rotation.

The belt is most likely either the wrong size (too long) or the belt has stretched. A new belt of the correct size should solve this problem. Make sure you have the model number when you buy the belt. I recommend that you take the old belt with you and verify that the replacement is a little shorter.

We recently purchased a GE dryer and were told it is electric or gas operated, the dryer runs but is not heating up. i think it might be because it isnt getting enough electricitry, but i cant get the back...

If your dryer came with a regular grounded cord attached, it is a gas dryer, and you will have to hook up a gas line to the 3/8 pipe nipple at the lower left corner (when viewed from behind). The 4 prong power cord is only used for electric only models. If still unsure, post the model number from the sticker inside the door of the dryer.

Hi, my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is LOUD!

Roaring could be an over firing burner or fan related. Squeak or rumbles are bearings. Is the noise all the time or only when the burner is on? Eric

Heat shuts off after a few minutes

Check Replace Thermostat. The Dryer Thinks Its Not Lighting Because The Thermostat Isn't Working.

The Dryer Has A Safety Mechanism So It Wont Flood Your Home With Gas. When The Thermostat Is Broken The Unit Doesn't Detect The Heat And Shuts Off The Gas.
