Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

GE,Dryer,dbxr463ed1ww, This newer model GE dryer won't turn the drum after start switch is turned. The motor (according to 2nd hand accounts) was energized or humming but dryer drum would not turn. I have taken off top and front of dyer and also needed to reduce tension on belt to take off,so then drum can be removed to access (I think) problem area. Could anyone please help. My soon to be ex-wife would be very grateful. I would too as my parents are being allowed to stay in her room.

It sounds like the belt broke off. Unless you have replaced even just the belt before,you need a experienced repairman, trust me.....

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

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when i try to turn it on, but it won't turn on at all. What could the issue be?


The motors centrifugal switch may be stuck. Try having someone start it while pressing in the door switch while you rotate the drum with your hand by grabbing one of the drum vanes. I don't know which direction your drum rotates. Try both. This may start the drum turning on its own and resetting the switch.

Hi, my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is LOUD!


Roaring could be an over firing burner or fan related. Squeak or rumbles are bearings. Is the noise all the time or only when the burner is on? Eric

Dryer won't spin, but heats up - belt is okay


the motor may have seized up, or the drum bearings are shot.

Dryer drum doesn't sart rolling when it is turned on.


It is not using the start winding in the motor. You might be able to remove the end bell and clean the switch?

GE Electric Dryer Older model


it could be the motor capacitor. to check, turn on and carefully give the drum a push in the direction of rotation. if the drum picks up speed and goea ok, then the motor capacitor is faulty. cheap part
