Question about Dryers

1 Answer

We have a General Electric Dryer, Model # DDE 5300 GBLWH. The tub stopped turning but the dryer was hot. We have removed the back and it appears as if the belt is broken. We are not sure how to replace the belt. Could you send us a schematic? Thank you!

  2. This may be helpful....The way to get at the belt to replace it is actually through the top/and front. You need to remove the front panel and lift up the top section as it lifts and tilts back. You will need a multi driver screw driver. The first thing to do is get the bottom panel off and this is done by actually prying it off or should I say popping it off by popping it out of the metal clips that are holding it in place.Place the flat head driver in the crack between the bottom panel(below the door) at the side so it is sticking out off the side gap. The bottom panel has a gap all the way around it so this can be done. You can put a cloth over the driverin order not to scratch if you like.once it is sticking out of the side gap you can push on the driver towards the back of the machine so when you pop it the front panel will come forward.You need to do this on both sides and there is two or three clips on each side and there are four or five along the top if OI am not mistaking.this panel will pop off and then you can access the screws that hold the front panel on. Start with the screws just under the door along the bottom off the front panel, once you get those out there is clips along the side the same as the bottom panel that you will need to pop it out of.The top pieceof the dryer is also held on by these clips and you will need to go around the gap and pop it up on the sides and along the front.Once you get the top panel to lift up and tilt back rewst it on the wall or get it to stay up somehow.Then you will be able to see the screws that hold the front panel at the top of the panel. Make sure you are holding it when you take out the last screw as it will fall down otherwise.You may have to unplug a sensor or two in order to get it to rest on the side of the dryer ,.sitting on the floor lean it against the side. Then you will now have access to the drum. It should pull straight out .You do not have to take the drum out to change the belt but you can now put the belt around the drum with ease.If ti is still laying in the motor pulleys make sure to remember how it goes on as it only will work if you do it the right way

There could be some rubber/plastic or other contaminants in the drum, that leach on to your clothes when the dryer heats up. It's possible that some oil got on the felt seal that goes around your drum.

My dryer comes on and spins, heat comes on but clothes do not dry. I took the front panel off, it fires up but it doesnt get hot in the the drum.

Try checking the blower wheel just behind the front panel and see if it's loose or if you spin it without the tub moving, the blower wheel is probably stripped or you have no air flow. Take the vent off the back off unit see if you have air flow there. Remove all excess lint you see anywhere

Motor shuts off, and resets after a few minutes dryer wont run

May be the tub support rollers, If this is problem you will have to remove the tub. Then check rollers to see if they turn free. If not replace the faulty ones. This drag on the motor will cause it to get hot.
