Control panel turns on but dryer won't start. Start/pause button just beeps when pushed. Opened the front panel to the door switch with multimeter. It looks fine.What could be the issue?

your gonna have to go deeper than the door switch,do you know you can't get the blower motor for this dryer anymore,i don't know why they had to have two motors in their dryers?could be a broken belt,computer issues,bad t-stat or thermal fuse,the only way to tell is by checking it out with meter,also make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer,go in the back where the cord connects to dryer and check it there,there's no one answer for this problem,you just have to take it apart and start reading out the thermal fuse high limit t-stat,stuff like that,to find out.i remember the first time i worked on this style dryer,it took me around 20 minutes to figure out how to get it apart,some jerk put the control panel screw behind the knob,had to pull the knob off and then remove the screw to get the top off to take it apart lol,and they have a funky belt setup and two motors,i gotta tell you i would never buy a ge dryer,to much just to dry clothes.sorry i can't help you out with an answer,you can go here,put your model number in and see the parts in your dryer
like i said,i only worked on one of these style dryers and it is different from regular dryers,if you can't get it open check the control knob,pop it off and as far as i can remember,this was like 8 years ago i removed the screw behind it,then you can get at the screws to remove the top panel to get into it.wish i knew that at the time,thought it was just gonna be a regular ge dryer repair

My belt is broken on my tumble dryer.took it apart and don't know how to put the new belt on

The belt goes around the drum, through the idler pulley onto the pulley on the motor. The idler fastens into several holes on the floor of the dryer.

My GE DSXH43EA2WW Dryer is making a squeaking sound when running. Tends to get less noisey as the dryer continues to run

You will need to replace the dryer belt and inspect the belt rollers while you have it apart. If you go to the web link below it explains how to take apart the dryer to replace the belt, it has additional links to pictures and diagrams within the instructions. The first link is for replacement parts with diagrams of the dryer. Here is that link:

The next link is the Do It Yourself Article on replacing the dryer drum belt. while you have it apart remember clean the lint and dirt out of the cabinet interior. Here is the repair link:

you have to open back panel of dryer as well as the top. there will be a spring connected to the motor assembly. unlatch it, check your belt to see if it needs to be replaced. if cracked, replace. latch spring and belt should have tension.
