Question about GE DCVH515GF Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer DBVH512 Dries clothes for about 5 minutes then shuts off, including lights on the panel. I open the door and let it stand for a few minutes until the panel lights come back on. Then it dries for the rest of the cycle. We have cleaned the lint trap and and inspected the dryer venting. We also checked to make sure it is level. These are all things suggested in the manual. Our dryer is almost 2 years old and has served us well, up to now.

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?


Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

I have a tumble dryer.


Sounds as if the door switch is the problem. This is normally a safety switch that stops the dryer when the door is opened.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the door switch and check the switch condition with a continuity meter after removing the wires. Try turning the switch on and off....the meter should read power on and off when you do that.
You may have to remove the front of the dryer to get to the door switch.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Dryer keeps running


Your timer needs to be replaced. This is not a hard job, provided you can find the parts.

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Dryer works for few minutes then stops


clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.

Hunting boots no no!


If you have one of those fubuloso wrinkle guard whirlpools, they will buzz and start back up on their own in the cool down portion of the cycle the idea being the 2nd timer will keep the clothes from wrinkling by buzzing and then coming to life for a few minutes. Then it waits 10 minutes and if you aint got the clothes out or opened the door then it will repeat.

Dryer shuts off prematurely


The E1 code is a replace control panel code and a good way to check a sensor is to open the door with a empty machine and at the top of the opening there is a switch. Press it and start the dryer, watch the indicator for the sensor then get a wet finger and hold it across the two silver bars in the dryer, if it senses then maybe it is a mixed load or how is the machine leveled? I will lower the machine toward the sensor for better contact because after 3-5 passes the machine will assume the clothes are dry. If the sensor doesnt read then there is a question with the two mov varistors attached to a pig tail before the sensor. Here is a link to see what they look like.
