Question about GE DPSR610EGWT Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My GE dryer, model number DPSR610 is working great, however it seems to run too hot. It makes our laundry room very humid and the back metal plate is very hot to the touch. I would worry if anything was touching the back plate that it would be a major fire hazard. We just had the dryer installed about two weeks ago and am wondering if this is an installation issue or maybe a faulty dryer. Or maybe it's normal for the actual metal plate to be that hot. Please advise.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Dehumidifier seems to not be dehumidifying


If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

Dryer is extremly hot to the touch, condensation on cabinets and walls in the laundry room it gets so hot in there when dryer is running


Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat. What is your model number?

I did not use my GE dryer last night nor this morning. When I went into my laundry room this morning, the dryer was hot and so was the room.


You should unplug your unit if you have not already done so. The problem is the start switch is stuck in the on position, this can happen when the switch fails (melted inside). You will need to replace the start switch. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace.Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/dryerselectorswitch.html the video is of the selector switch but the start switch will be similar. Enter your model # if you need diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

Sparks in the Dryer


Ken,
Those blue sparks are coming from the element grounding out to the frame (specifically, the back side of the rotating drum). Obviously, this isn't gonna fix itself. There may be a "re-string" kit for yours, but often the only way to buy the element is to buy the whole heater assy., and w/ GE that's generally not that cheap.

Another thing (aside from cost) is the absolute nightmare this dryer is to repair. I've done probably 200 of these and I dread it each and every time. Then again, when I run these service calls I'm limited to working in the (generally small and cramped) laundry rooms that they are in... if you move it out to a garage where there's plenty of room it still won't be great, but it would be optimal.

If you choose to repair it, write back with the exact model number and I'll look up the parts and step you through the repair.

Bosch Self Venting


If you're asking about the Condensation - No Venting Required feature:

I've had one for about 4 years with no complaints. I have used plenty of traditional dryers -- even models with moisture sensors. In all of them, it was common to find clothing that was "hot to the touch" when finished.

Every Bosch load finishes with a hint of moisture. I believe this is the Bosch "anti-wrinkle" standard -- but have never used one of their vented dryers. Even a 10 min fluff seems to add a hint of moisture to the load. Either way, you can't throw everything in the laundry basket and leave it for a week.

Europe is short on McMansions -- favoring tiny old homes without proper laundry rooms. Ventless is the norm -- rather than the exception over there. The Bosch works as advertised --producing a trace amount of ambient moisture and/or heat.
Mildew can be an issue -- depending on the dryer's location -- and the areas relative temperature / humidity.

Functions best in a fully climate controlled indoor location.
