I have a whirlpool dryer Model GE/GQ8858J and it is not heating at all. It is 10 years old and I don't know if it is worth calling a repairman to come out. Any advice?

SOURCE: HOW TO FIX A NO HEAT ON A GE ELECTRIC DRYER OVER 10 YEAR OLD

Either one of 2 ways to get to the thermostat on a GE dryer.....

depending on your model, you will have an access point on the back of the dryer to get to the heating element which has attached to it, the thermostat.

If there isn't an access point on the rear of the unit, open the front door of the dryer and remove the 2 screws in the top of the door opening. Using a small prybar, slightly apply pressure prying up the lid. On the inside of the face of the dryer in the corners will be 2 more screws, remove those and pull the face of the dryer outwards to you to about a 45 degree angle. From there, you will be able to lift off the face. Be cautious to unplug the wires for the door switch before pulling the face all the way out. There isn't much to a 10 yr old dryer, just take your time, study the parts and put it back just as you took it apart. For the replacement thermostat or heating element look at

Good luck and let me know if there is any more trouble I can help with.

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.

If the compressor is shot, then there is not any reason to keep it. The parts and labor will cost you as much as a new fridge and then at that is not guarnteed to work correctly after the job is finished, or how long it will last afterwards

I need an answer please. why does my dryer tumbles but there is not heat. dryer 10 years old, should i replace or repair? thank you!


There is a common part that goes out after a decade on most dryers and it is called a "solenoid" which activates the heating function and turns heat on and off according to the setting you've commanded. The thermostat controls the degree and temp of heat, but when/if the solenoid fails ($20 part) there is NO HEAT that occurs. Dryers are very simple devices, hardly need replacing EVER, but with a repairman's help you should not have to spend much to get your machine working for another 10 years! Call a local repairman for the good news and have him fix it for you.

Dryer works but there is no heat in cycles, just plain air drying, do not know how to get hot air, it is an 10 year old kenmore gas dryer, has a dial for time of cycle, can not turn dial to get warm or hot...


I think you will need a repairman to fix this. The gas valve coils may be bad if the igniter radiates but then shuts off before the gas ignites. A repairman can also look at the radiant heat sensor nearby the igniter and replace it if it is bad. He should inspect fuses and circuit breakers and the heating element for continuity, using a device called an OHM Meter. I don't think this is a do it yourself repair job.
