Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My GE Dryer Front Load Electric - DBXR463EG5WW - will not start now. The problem started about a week ago, when a load was finished drying and the next load was in it would take 15 to 20 minutes to start. This got progressively worse to about an hour on Friday. Now on Monday it will not start at all. I checked the power and it correct. From previous posts I could only determine it could be the thermal fuse or the start switch. I can locate the start switch and cannot locate the thermal fuse. I saw two things on the drum housing that looked like a fuse, but am not sure. On the diagram could this be the t-state name T'STAT HI-LIMIT? I switched the door and it worked. What else could it be??

Hi the thermal fuse or safety thermostat is the smaller one on top of the element i think a little to the left hope that helps.it may also be the motor i would look at motor see if it need cleaning.sometimes the motor get hot and goes out on over load . sound like yours has gone out for good .look for burnt off wires

Clothes smell after drying


I don't think the problem lies with the dryer, I would suspect the washer has mold, this is especially true on front load washer, they make products designed just for this problem, check with a large retailer, not sure who makes the mold and mildew remover, I think Home Depot or Lowes may have the product or know about it..

Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.


Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.

GE front load dryer


Clothing gets caught in the front of the dryer as it spins. This is leaving black marks and wholes in our clothing.
