Oldfixer is right. My clothes were catching, plus I was getting grease type streaks on our clothing.

Opening the top and front of the dryer revealed pieces of the plastic ring broken and the top portion of pad completey disintegrated.

We received this dryer from someone who got a new set, and they didn't mention that the dryer was having problems. :-(

Good luck!

My dryer just stopped working. We did a couple of loads today and on my start of the second load, I put the clothes in the dryer and turned the START switch, but all you hear is the dryer trying to start....


It is your motor. Here is a trick to try to see if that is the case. Get some tape and put it over the door safety latch. Spin the drum as you press the start button, if the dryer takes off then it motor.

Our dryer squeaks very load, and the drum just started vibrating. very scary. can u help?


The dryer drum sits on a gasket. Usually you can pop off the top and see if the gasket has failed. If the drum has slipped you may be able to re-seat it. If it has failed it will should be visible.

My dryer is making a scratching noise like something is stuck behind the drum toward the front of the dryer. Any help?


The drum has a seal between the drum and the front panel of the dryer. You would need to remove the top then the front panel to gain access to replace or maybe clean the seal

GE dryer won't start up - sounds like the drum is stuck.


unplug it,open the door and look up.you'll see two screws,take them out and remove the top panel,then look around three or four inches down from the top and removetwo more screws,one on each side,this is harder than most dryers to work on,not much room to reach under the drum to remove and reinstall the belt,there's also one more screw down on the right hand side below the drum that has to come out also, just remember how you took it apart,if you start it and hear a loud humming sound that's the motor,hope this helps you

My GE Profile Dryer is still operating but produces loud intermitent noise as the drum rotates. What can I do to eliminate the noise?


It sounds like you may have a bad bearing in the back of the drum. That model rotates on a sort of ball and socket type mechanism. You may be able to lubricate it if the noise is just squealing/squeaking. If it is more than that, you'll probably need to replace the bearing mechanism. If you lube it, use a heavy weight lube that is rated for high heat (I've used brake caliper grease.)
