Question about GE DVL223EBWW Electric Dryer

Open Question

GE DVL223EBWW Hello, Dryer is working and heats up. It is making a thumping noise. Removed the top of dryer and watched it operate. As tub cycles around, it looks like it is bouncing off it's rails or seems to be loose on whatever guides it to turn. Any suggestions on what to look for and the level of repair? Pat

To access these dryers you open the door and look up at the 12 oclock position and their will either be 2 or 4 screws holding down the top. These must be removed and then you can get the top to come up(or off on newer models). Once you have the top up you can get to the screws which hold the front on (2). Then you simply remove the front and get it out of your way. On these dryers there is a friendly rear hatch to help you replace the idler. As far as the thump tha could be from anything. Once you get the dryer apart you should be able to locate and remedy the problem.

Is your dryer gas or electric? I think based on your model number, it possibly looks like your dryer is gas. Regardless, you need to look at what the service mode troubleshooter tells you. To access it:

1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

Let me know what it tells you and I can help you further from there.

Dryer makes banging sound as drum rotates


The drum rollers are worn out and wobble when moving..it should be more of a thump/thump sound, unless really are almost gone...UNPLUG dryer and raise top...Since no model. i'm going with standard kenmore/whirlpool dryer type. The top has two screws by lint filter..Remove these and raise top...The front can be removed by removing two screws inside each front corner. The door switch must be disconnected at wiring..Remove front and set aside...The drum can be removed after the belt comes off...look down in right rear corner under drum..you will see the belt pulley and you want to see how it goes around pulley to help reinstall..remove belt, there will be tension and make sure you draw yourself a diagram of path of belt to ease install of belt....now once belt is removed, you can pull out drum...there are two drum rollers. They are bad if you roll them and they wobble and make noise. They should be almost quiet when you roll them if they are good..the belt roller can be bad and squeek...check this as well...replace parts and reinstall

The top of the dryer gets hot when temp control is not set on off


One of your heating elements has broken and welded itself to the heater housing. When the timer is activated L-2 powers the remnant through the timer to the neutral. You need to unplug the dryer and fix the heater element. 9b8cf19.jpgbc36f64.jpg97143cb.jpg
