Question about Dryers

1 Answer

GE DBXR453 Electric dryer suddenly will only get warm so clothes take longer to dry. This is what I have done: 1. Checked that correct 220 voltage is going to socket. 2. Cleaned out lint build up in complete exhaust path from outside vent through dyer to the blower fan. 3. Checked the rear heating coil, thermostat, thermostat center inlet, safety thermostat, and thermostat bias drum out for continuity. Everything checks out fine. What could it be?

    Where is it located?

  • arzee1 Oct 23, 2010

    I don't see a sensor connected to any part of the air vent running from the front of the dryer to the rear. However, there is a sensor connected to the housing around the blower fan which connects to the air vent. This is a "thermostat drum out" according to the parts list. Is this the part I should replace?

    There are only three thermostats, which one can it be?

    thermostat center inlet
    safety thermostat
    thermostat bias drum out

  • arzee1 Oct 23, 2010

    So should I replace the "thermostat drum out"?

    This can be caused by the Cycling thermostat,
    Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Clothes get caught


Instructions

1

Remove the lint screen from the GE electric clothes dryer.
2

Roll the lint from the screen with your hand. If the lint screen is clogged with fabric softener, fill a sink with hot water and add 1 to 2 tsp. dish soap.

3

Scrub the lint screen with a soft-bristle brush and soapy water. Rinse the lint screen thoroughly and shake off any excess water. Set the lint screen aside to air dry while you clean the dryer exterior.
4

Dampen a cloth with warm water and wring it out. Wipe over the GE electric dryer exterior to remove any lint, dust or product residue. If the dryer is very dirty, dip the cloth in the soapy water and wipe away any spots.
5

Wipe the GE clothes dryer with a towel to dry. Replace the lint screen when it's completely dry.

Your dryer has a double set of heating elements
themobilian_2122.jpg
1 side of the coils is probably broken and you are getting half the heat.
This is making the dryer take longer to dry them clothes.
themobilian_2123.jpg
themobilian_2124.jpg
Air restrictions in the dryer and vent can cause the heater control to shut down quickly also.
If you have a bad breaker the power will sometimes work and sometimes not.

If all of these are good you might have a problem with the timer.

Most of the GE timers have leaf switches in the that get a burr on the contacts. The come apart simple enough.

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Check the entire vent (exhaust ) system start the dryer and go outside to the exhaust vent ,you should feel a good amount of warm airflow.bet you will fine low airflow. You need good air circulation to help remove the moisture from the clothing warm or hot temps alone would take longer if ever to dry ..this generally happens slowly over time and the next thing you realize is that its running much longer than it use to... plus it cost more....if you still have a concern you may have a thermostat that is short cycling not letting it get hot enough long enough... Hope this helps GOOD LUCK

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating


Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.
