Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have a GE dryer mod. dhdsr46eg6ww and it has stopped working. I believe it is the motor or a part within the motor, because when you turn the knob to start it, nothing happens. The day it stopped, it started fine but when I came back to get my clothes they were still wet.

SOURCE: Dryer won't Start

the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

Sounds as if you have a bad motor. That humming is a big give away. Unless its less than 3 years. I would replace it.

SOURCE: MAYTAG GAS DRYER TUMBLES BUT NO HEAT (FRONT LOADER 6 YRS. OLD)

Hello maryfitgera,
It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..
Regards,
Rick

My dryer knob has broken again. Wich direction should I be turning the knob when choosing a drying cycle? I was told I was turning wrong direction.


GE dryers turn in the clockwise direction and if you turn in the counterclockwise direction you could break the stops off the switch.

I HAVE A GE DRYER DBXR453GA2WW. We replaced the belt. The start knob is missing but we can still get it turn on by manual turning the apparatus underneath the knob. However, the dryer will not stay on.


If the dryer starts but will not stay running, the cientrifugal switch in the motor is likely faulty. The motor will probably need to be replaced.

Starter knob on GE dryer came off. Dryer won't turn on.


If it turns hard, the timer may need replaced. But if you can turn the shaft with a pair of pliers and the dryer works, just get a new knob.
