No its not hard, just unplug first and then just take the front off and take note where the wires go to the door switch.,also check your drum to make sure you did not damage.

I have the same dryer doing the same thing. Open the door and take the two screws out and lift the top. Remove the two screws that hold the front on. Remove the front. On mine both the plastic parts that stay on the front when it is removed are cracked and needing replaced. I found over 20 buttons that the dryer had pulled off clothes stuck in the front door. I'm sure if it will be cost effective to buy both these parts or not.

SOURCE: GE Front loader doesn't dry clothes completely.

Hello there:
f yourdryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied withthe proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is gettingto your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, checkthe circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are inthe correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in yourfuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is notgetting to your dryer.

dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.

SOURCE: my GE Profile Harmony dryer wont dry clothes

I finally had a GE authorized tech come to our house, because we've had the same problem on and off for about 2 yrs. Our's is 5 1/2 yrs old, and the problem was the blower motor, which is hard to get to, and the nut holding the fan in place is also put on going the "opposite" direction. (So lefty loosey, righty tighty doesn't work for this one) The Tech told me in all his years he has never replaced a heater in any of these, and it has 2. The usual problem is the blower motor has gone bad. It's working great now, and it was $470 to fix, but still cheaper than a new one....

Fin that tumbles clothing inside dryer coming loose, how can I tighten it?


These fins are usually screwed on from the outside of the drum. If you're up to it this is a simple but time consuming fix. Take the cabinet off the front of the dryer, the top will come off as well. be careful of the wires from the control console, they will stay attached to the dryer. Tighten the tumbler fins on the drum and then re-assemble the cabinet. Typically the screws you need to access are the same used for the door latch and hinges. They go back together easy ........

Our cloths are snaging between the dryer door and the front wall on the handle side of the door (left side). There so stuck that they rip a hole in them when we free them.


Sounds like you front drum support / bearing is wearing out. When the support wears out, a gap occurs between the drum and drum support, That is where the clothes are getting caught, Does your dryer squeak when running? If so, then replace the front drum support / bearing. Cost about $35 - $40.

Everything gets caught in the front crack where the drum ends by


The glides on the inside of the front door are worn, possibly the felt too. You'll have to remove the front of the dryer to see the problem and fix it. Mine did the same thing. Because they are worn the drum is at an angle allowing a gap to form where the clothes get stuck.

Getting some sort of rust stain on my clothes from this dryer?


if you look inside b/w the drum to the front wall you see on the bottom a gap.
this gap come from ware and taire of the seal felt. and the clothes get stuck there. you need a new upper felt (its like special sponge or fabric)
as a technitian i change thus every 4-5 years b/c they just ware down .
the felt is the sponge that the drum ride on ,in the front wall of your dryer

Fins inside drumare loose


Open the top ... held down with spring clips ... remove the front panel ... probably 2 to 4 screws ... be careful of the wires ... unplug the machine of course. Remove the drum ... but first observe the belt arrangement so you can reinstall. Tighten the 'fins'. Reverse the procedure.

You can use a pry or large screw driver to pop the top. Be careful of the finish.

Screws in clothes during cycle now stuck between drum & inside


Check for a removable panel at the bottom, either front or back. If you can't find them, they may have landed on some part. Shake the machine as hard as you can to see if you can dislodge them. If not, turn the machine upside down and bang the sides with your open hand. If still nothing, they may be caught in the wiring and you will need to remove the drum to find them.
