When I press the start button on my GE DPSR610EG4WT profile dryer it only makes an electrical buzzing sound and will not turn on or start. What causes this?


The buzz is probably coming from the control switch drive motor. If it is not turning the switch, the dryer wont run.

My ge dryer model DRS483ED1WW won't turn on all it does is buzz when I try. I have changed starter switch that didn't work


does the drum and motor turn by hand freely. but i think its possibly the bushes in the motor. just have a look at motor and see if theres black carbon dust on it, you will get this on a motor anyway but not in excess

GE dryer won't start up - sounds like the drum is stuck.


unplug it,open the door and look up.you'll see two screws,take them out and remove the top panel,then look around three or four inches down from the top and removetwo more screws,one on each side,this is harder than most dryers to work on,not much room to reach under the drum to remove and reinstall the belt,there's also one more screw down on the right hand side below the drum that has to come out also, just remember how you took it apart,if you start it and hear a loud humming sound that's the motor,hope this helps you

GE Prodigy gas dryer will not start


The buzz you are hearing is most likely be caused by the motor. The motor may be stuck from a restriction or it may be faulty.

Shutting off before cycle end ? Check the vent line. It may be partially clogged.

Won't run at all ? Something may still be wrong with the wiring. Check the breakers and make sure you have 220V at the recepticle.
