It should have 2 long screws going up from inside the door. Top sides forward and up. Then two more screws from behind front panel. Not much room to work with on that design.

GE dryer turns on but doesn't spin


Probably nothing but a broken belt. Ge dryers can be tricky. Most of them cannot be accessed from the rear anymore. Lots of videos on youtube now that show how to replace a dryer belt on a GE dryer.

My GE DBSR453EB1WW electric dryer doesn't turn on. It worked fine yesterday morning for one load and when I put in my second load, it wouldn't start. It is plugged into the outlet and the breaker is fine....


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Where is the heating element located on the model #FER641FSO?


the element is located behind the drum itself and the drum must be removed in order for it to be accessed. this requires popping the top of the dryer open as the are metal clips that hold it closed it will take a flat screwdriver to wedge it the crack and give it a good pop so that the handle of your driver moves towards the floor when you pry it open.Be sure to shut off the breaker as well as unplug thew unit before you do anything at all.the drum will slide out relatively easy but you must remove the belt by accessing it usually through the front bottom panel(metal clips) be sure to remember how the belt goes on the pulleys as it can be tricky to put it back the same way it was. this is impotant because there is a swithch under the arm on one of the pulleys that if its not assembled proprly the switch will not be depressed and it will not run.

How do I replace the dryer belt?


sorry see the make, here is how u do the job

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver with interchangeable bits
  • Putty knife
  • New dryer belt for GE Hotpoint electric dryer
  1. Step 1 Unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall. Take out the upside-down screws in front that hold down the top. In older Hotpoint models, they will be under the rim of the top in front. In newer models, they will be on the inside of the dryer door opening, facing up. Slide your putty knife under the top rim to pry it up and get your fingers under it. Lift the top off the machine and set it aside.
  2. Step 2 Take out the screws that hold the front of the dryer in place, which will be on the upper inside of the box, on either side, facing toward the front. Pull the dryer front off. Keep the side with the wire connections next to the dryer (so you don't have to disconnect the wires) while opening the other side away from it like a door. The wiring side will vary.
  3. Step 3 Slip the belt off the dryer drum from the front. It won't come out completely; it will be held in one lower corner by the motor assembly.
  4. Step 4 Remove the access panel on the lower part of the back of the dryer by removing the screws. Access the motor unit. Note the configuration of the belt in the pulleys, then slip the belt off the pulleys by pushing the larger pulley forward.
  5. Step 5 Slip the new belt onto the drum from the front, with the ribbed side against the drum. Re-string it on the pulleys from the back, in the same configuration as the old one. Manually turn the drum several revolutions to make sure the belt is straight.
  6. Step 6 Put the rear access panel back on with the screws you took out. Close and re-secure the front and top (in that order) as they were before. Plug in the dryer.

I have a GE Profile dryer. The dryer is squeekly


Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Concerning the squeaking sounds. this can be caused by a bad drum belt or a leveling issue as well. more issues will be bad drum support rollers or, a failing bearing assembly in the idler pulley. the blower, baffles and guides will deteriorate as well, causing noise overtime. These are most of the uncommon issue that will cause this issue, but the most common issue will be failed idler pulley bearings. The pulley will tend to squeak very loudly if the bearings are worn.

Access to the idler pulley varies by model, if your dryer has a lower front panel (kick plate) start there. It should lift up and off or it may be held in place with a few screws or snaps; it may also have a catch at the edges or center gap between the kick panel and main panel. To release the catch, push a putty knife, wrapped with masking tape, into the gap and push back the catch. The next easiest access point is the rear panel. The rear access panel is held in place with several screws along the outer edges. The last resort method of access is the removal of the entire front panel. The front panel supports the front of the drum and so removal is more difficult. Front panel removal varies. In general, access is gained by lifting the top (remove the lint trap screws first), removing the screws that secure the front panel, and detaching the panel from the drum.

When reaching into the dryer be careful of sharp edges on the cabinet and interior supports. Reach in to the belt and give it tug. It should be taught and have only a little give. The belt should go under the idler pulley and over the motor pulley. Lift the idler pulley toward the motor to relieve tension on the belt and remove it from the motor pulley.

Turn the idler pulley wheel, it should turn smoothly, quietly and without any wobble. Inspect it for cracks or uneven wear. If the idler pulley does not maintain proper tension or is damaged it should be replaced. Depending upon your model, the entire assembly or just the wheel or bearing may be replaced.

Belt installation


HI, Looking at the idler assembly from the back, move the idler wheel to the left (spring loaded).
Slip the belt on the motor pulley with ribs touching pulley. Now let the idler pulley rest againdt the back side of the belt.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can help further.

I need to change a dryer belt on GE model DBxR463EBoWW electric dryer we have the belt on but it is loose


First, make sure you are using the proper belt. For your model
DBXR4630WW that would be a part number WE12M29. Next, the grooves of the belt touch the drum. Now, looking at it from the front side, the belt goes from the left side of the drum directly to the motor drive pulley, then around the tensioning pulley, and then back to the bottom right back around drum.

there is a spring-loaded belt tensioner pulley. make sure it is part of the belt loop. you will need to move the tensioner pulley against the spring force then place belt on tensioner pulley and then release the tensioner pulley and belt will now be tight.
