Power button stuck will not stay pushed in but does work why?


Sounds like simply the mechanical aspect of it has failed somewhere. Get your complete model # and enter it into the search box at repairclinic.com. You should be able to order a new one and replacement is possible if you're adept at all with such repairs . . Sounds like a reasonably fix. .

Can you give me information on how to replace the belt in the dryer.


From back of dryer remove access door to disconnect belt from motor & tensioner.(remember how belt was placed on tensioner & motor pulley) You must remove dryer front panel ( look for 2 screws at bottom of front panel) Pull out from botton of front panel to remove, exposing drum end retainer brackets, remove brackets, allowing access to drum. Slide old belt off & new one on.

How do i get new belt on ge profile dryer ?


This is actually not that complicated. Unplug the machine. Lie it on its back. Remove all screws holding the front panel on. Disconnect the doorswitch wires don't worry you can cross them either way when replacing them. Remove the front panel. If you look down to your right side bottom corner you'll see the drive motor and tensioner spring. Remove the old belt. Slide the new belt over the drum, making sure the correct side is in contact with the drum, you usually can tell by looking at the old belt.
When it comes to the drive motor and tensioner(use care not to let the tensioner fall out, it only sits in a slot on the bottom panel. After you have the belt in its groove around the drum, worm it over the drive gear and pull the tensioner back enough to grab the belt.

My dryer is sqeaking loudly when running


Squeaking usually comes from drum roller supports and/or the belt idler pulley needing lubricated. If the drum does not have drum roller supports under the drum, it will be equipped with a plastic drum glide the is located around the perimeter of the front drum facing. If this plastic wears down it will cause the drum to scrape against the metal bulkhead and make noise. If equipped, you need to replace the drum glide

The drum rollers (if equipped) can be lubricated with a light weight turbine oil (like the kind you would lubricate some ceiling fan motors with). Lubricate the roller wheels at the axle ONLY. Do not lubricate the wheels. The same is true for the idler pulley. Make sure you don't get any oil on the belt, or it will slip.

If you need instructions on how to reinstall the drive belt, repairclinic.com has dryer belt diagram illustrations under their "Repair Help" section. Look for the "Dryer Belt Diagram" link on the left hand side of the page. If your dryer is a GE model, you would use diagram M, D, or L (depending on the age of the dryer).

If you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

REPLACING BELT


Hello, This is somewhat involved and time consuming, but if you are handy, it can be done. First unplug the dryer then start with the two screws in the hinges of the door and then the door lifts out. Two screws on the opposite side holding plastic spacers. Once these four screws are out the front panel tilts right out. The front panel will come off then 4 more holding on the front tumbler support and air duct. Removed wires from light and dryness sensor and clips holding wires to panels. Pull out the tumbler and removed belt. If your dryer gets a lot of use, then you might want to keep going and replace some more wear items while you have it apart. Remove the two drum support rollers and shafts by removing a nut on the back side of each shaft. Remove snap ring off each old shaft, install new rollers and fiber washers onto new shafts, reinstall snap ring and replaced on brackets with the old nut. Remove tension spring off idler pulley bracket and one screw holding on the bracket. Install new pulley and fiber washers on new bracket and reinstall bracket and spring. Placed new belt on tumbler and reinstalled tumbler. Used drill and bit to drill out pop rivits holding on the two front glides that are attached on the front tumbler support and installed new glides and pop riveted in. Reinstall front support and air duct checking that felt tumbler seal front and rear are in place. Placed new belt on motor pulley and idler pulley. Reinstall front panel.

Don, the drum on this model rotates on a bearing in back. This is most likely where the sqeeling is comming from. You will have to service this from the front. Should be 2 screws just above the door on each side. Remove them and the top will lift up. Slide the top off forward. Once the top is off, you will see a couple of screws holding the the front panel and door assy. on. One on each side inside front panel. Unplug the door harness and remove the front panel and door. Undo the belt and the drum should pull straight out. Watch out not to get the belt hung on the motor. Now you will see the rear bearing and shaft bracket that the drum rides on. It may need to be replaced or just lubed up real good. Catriver.
