My ge Profile dryer is 5 years old and for about a year the drying process became slower and slower as the heat within became cooler and cooler! Im thinking thats the heating element. My question is how do I get to it?

Hello,
Actually, it sounds to me like you have gradual lint build-up in your dryer and vent. Over time, the lint build up slowly causes the drying time to take longer because it is slowly getting blocked. Pull out your dryer, unplug it, and disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Take a flashlight and look inside the back of the dryer and clean out as needed. Then clean out the vent attached to the dryer and make sure the vent cap outside is not clogged or the vent flap is not stuck. If you have a expandable plastic or foil vent tube attached to your dryer, make sure it is not getting squished when you push the dryer back. I have to clean mine out every year because I have a long vent on my dryer. Hope this helps! Douglas

This is dued to lint build up in the dryers venting tubes. If you completely tear the vents off and clean them inside thoroughly it will run like ne again. It will be better to replace accordian stle tubes than to clean them if that is what you have on yours

A moister sensor detects the build up and keeps the heat in check

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

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....

You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again
