Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

My GE Gas Dryer won't start. It is the DHDSR46 model, about 3 yrs old. When I turn the Start switch to the right to turn it on, it seems to go, only to stop when I release the switch.

Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. I believe I replied to you question few days back however If the vent is clean then it seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse/Thermostat going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thanks
Rylee

Ge dryer model dhdsr46


There should be two tabs on the back wall that look like metal strips. Those are the sensors and they rely on the clothes to touch them every so often to get and idea how moist they are. The sensor is most likely not the case. You should check the wires to it but it is probably the control board
