SOURCE: GE Profile Dryer Model # DPSR473EWOWW SQUEAKING

If the squeaking has been going on for only a short time, you may be able to get by with only replacing the rear drum bearing, but if it has been going on for some time you should replace the drum bearing kit part # WE25M40. Also be sure to check that the front drum slides are ok, especially the one on the left side of the front drum support, as this one wears out faster. Drum slides #
WE1M481 and
WE1M333 and if front support frame is worn so that there is nothing left to hook the slides into you would need a
WE3M26.

SOURCE: 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.

My GE profile harmony dryer blows cold air on any setting do I need to replace heating element?


Yup...heating element (usually there are two) is done. Likely the first one was done long ago and the second has finally died.

I have a ge harmony profile dryer and when its cold usually below 40 the screen will not come on the light inside the dryer when i open the door will come on but the touch will not come on until the room...


I have this same problem and have found that if I disconnect the vent to prevent cold air from coming in, the problem goes away, but it takes about 2 hours to warm up. In addition, I tried putting a hair drying pushing air back through the dryer's vent intake into the dryer itself, and this took an hour.

Some reading indicates it might be a faulty thermal fuse, but it isn't clear.

Did you every find a solution to your problem?

I have a ge profile psc23nhpa refriderator that the fridge side of the unit temperature shoot up to 135 over night. But the freezer side was still very cool. What could cause this?


Are you sure it is 135? If the freezer is cold but the fridge is warm, most likely is the damper door problem. (Basically, it's a door controlled by the main board, get cold air from freezer and close when the fridge is cold enough)

Hi.

If the fan does not work at all,then the fan motor must be replaced. The fan is tested jumping its contacts to energize it directly.

More commonly the problem is clogged air ducts. Check lint filter and check ducts for blockage. Ensure that the air duct is well in place.

Sounds like the damper or damper belt may be at fault. The cold air enters the refer compartment through the damper in the back. If that damper is not controled to close/open as needed it is likely stuck fully open all the time. That will let cold air in no matter what the t-stat says. See if you can view with a mirror and see if the damper "blinds" are fully open. If the t-stat is turned all the way down the dampers should close, as less cold air is needed. Then, as the t-stat is turned up, the dampers open to let in cold air from the freezer compartment. Let us know what you find and we can go from there.

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating


Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.

GE Profile Dryer. Sometimes fails to heat or just air dries.


Cold solder joints on blower motor coils. Needs re-soldered. I suggest finding a buddy who knows how to take the dryer apart and knows how to solder. Luckily for me, I know how to do all of that, I had the same problem you have.
