Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I had to replace the 7 volt light bulb in the dryer. Lowes gave me a 6 volt and the bulb blew. No with a 7 volt it does not work. Do I have to re-wire or is there a reset switch on it somewhere?

    Cannot find the socket to replace the light bulb inside the dryer. This is a heavy duty GE dryer.

No reset check the bulb holder wiring for 120 volts to the socket
if 120 present unplug the dryer and inspect the socket for problems

My light bulb went out in my dryer and I bought a regular replacement bulb from home depot and it doesn't work. Does my dryer need a special bulb?


Hello Eric;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

In general all appliances require a special bulb; your oven, refrigerator - the bulbs are designed for the service - extreme hot or extreme cold.
These bulbs are expensive.

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

I replace the light bulb but it does not work although the dryer works fine. Is there a special bulb?


with the power unplugged, check the tab inside the bulb socket to be sure its not burned or damaged, also,, at times a new bulb is no good, If you have a multimeter,, put the selector to continuity ,, and place the black lead to the bulb base, and the red lead to the center point at the bottom of the bulb, if you get no reading, the bulb is no good, ( if you don't have a meter, screw it into another lamp, as long as your sure the dryer light socket is a 120v not a 220 volt

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had


The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.

My dryer did the same thing, all the lights worked on front, but the bulb was out inside. All I had to do was to replace the thermal fuse and replace the bulb if you want light. The bulb don't have to work in order to dry clothes
