Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

My GE gas dryer DHDSR46G1WW stopped working midcycle. The start switch had fallen out when we messed with it, and we put it back in. We tested to see if there is power to all of the switches, and there is no power to any of them. Do you have any suggestions on what it might be? The door switch seems fine-it is not loose or broken.

Check the belt to see if it is broken. Also check the door switch.

Dryer Quit midcycle and will not restart. GE WSM2400LBBAD

Try and open the door hold the switch in and have someone try and start it while you turn the drum clockwise and see if it restarts,
There could be a problem with your main power source,door switch,start switch and or the timer well as one of the thermal fuses located in the unit has failed.

Commercial quality dryer, can't find model #. Stopped working, checking incoming power - ok. Cannot see any fried wires in back - any suggestions for next step

This sounds like it may be the door switch. Without the model number, or a picture of the dryer, I can't give an exact procedure to test it. But with any dryer, it is the door switch that, if bad, will not let the dryer do anything but run the timer.
Try opening the door and manually pushing in the door switch. Try to run it then and see what happens. Sometimes it just doesn't push the switch far enough to activate it (rare, but does happen).
