Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer runs for minutes then stops timer keeps going and going and .....

My GE dryer (don't know the actual model #) is about 3 years old, if that. We already replaced the heating element about 1 year ago. Now, dryer runs for about 3 - 5 minutes and then stops. Dryer is hot, so I know the heating element is working. The timer keeps running until the time is up even though the dryer itself stops running. HELP!!!! Is there an easy fix or should I just get a new dryer?

    Possible bad timer? Works fine in regular press & timed heating.

GE dryer dwsr463eg7ww timer isn't working and doesnt heat up


The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/7-3-850356-/GE-Dryer-won-t-stop-DWSR463EG7WW

Hey richn14, I have a dryer idnetical to yours and bought it from one of my friends, and the guy that owned it before them was/ is a total idiot ( i know him, unfortunatly) and have had to do quite a bit of wrok to my dryer.What im thinking it is, is a loose connection on the timer, ive dealt with that or the timer itself is bad/going bad. When I was working on my dryer I was amazed at all the electrical connections on the timer, and the connections on the motor, well, blew my mind. If you are going to check this out yourself and need to know how to take any part of the dryer apart let me know and ill post it on here or can email you, either one.

Dryer heat won't come on every time. Sometimes


That is probably some burred contacts inside the timer. Most timers cannot be serviced but this timer can be if you are handy and careful. You can file down the contacts in this timer and it will work ok for a while and if it keeps on being intermittant you know you gotta buy a new timer. It is simpler and cheaper just to clean the contacts though.

Dries clothes but runs too long & clothes VERY hot


Fixable and possibly a warranty claim. The timer is bad. You will need to get behind the control panel and remove the timer and replace the timer. First I would call whoever it is that yall bought the dryer through and see how long your warranty is. Most of the warranties are only 1 year. But if you bought a extended warranty then you are covered. The part can be found at repairclinic.com

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.


A common problem, had it happen to me.

Replace the timer control. takes about 15 minutes and the skill to remove screws, disconnect plug from old timer, remove timer, install new timer, connect plug, replace screws and panel, run dryer.

Reply the model number, and I'll get you the timer P/N.
