Push start button needs replacement even when every thing is in place it doesnt start the push buttons points inside have warn out
ive worked on this model several times people tend to push the button a little harder so the plastic clips in side break and doesnt make its connection

the part is 12.84 easy to install as long as you do one wire at time

  • turn your circuit breaker off then back on. sometimes the only one side of the dual 220v breaker will trip leaving you with a non functioning machine thats seems to have electricity going to it.
  • another thing to check is the door switch.

Need to replace safety thermostat in GE dryer


The limit you want is a WE4X800. It mounts on the dryer heater. Looks like this:

My electric GE dryer stopped working today, when


sounds like the motor is running, the belt could likely be broken and be the culprit, this is if the motor is turning for sure after you start the dryer

How do you light pilot light?


Dryer does not have pilot light.  There is an ignitor that glows when the dryer is started and lights the flame when the gas begins to flow.  With the front of the dryer off start it up and look for the glow. when it glows hot enough (or on a newer model it might be a spark) the gas should ignite.  When the flame sensor sees that the gas is ignited it shuts off the ignitor and keeps the gas valve open until the temperature sensor gets high and shuts it off.  When the temp sensor cools down the cycle repeats.
If no glow or spark-->bad ignitor If no gas flow-->bad flame sensor or bad gas valve coil If gas comes on and goes off quickly-->lint filter and/or vent pipe or outlet may be clogged or bad flame sensor.
