Question about GE Profile Prodigy DPSR513GA Dryer

1 Answer

GE Profile Prodigy Electric Dryer start knob turns too far

Normally, you only have to turn the start knob about a 1/4" to the line that says start and the dryer comes on. Now, you have to turn the knob about 1/2" past the start line before it comes on.
It does come on, so not a critical problem right now, however, I am thinking it will probably stop working soon, so I want to get a jump start on potential problems and fixes. Thank you for the input.

GE dryer won't start up - sounds like the drum is stuck.


unplug it,open the door and look up.you'll see two screws,take them out and remove the top panel,then look around three or four inches down from the top and removetwo more screws,one on each side,this is harder than most dryers to work on,not much room to reach under the drum to remove and reinstall the belt,there's also one more screw down on the right hand side below the drum that has to come out also, just remember how you took it apart,if you start it and hear a loud humming sound that's the motor,hope this helps you

Starter knob on GE dryer came off. Dryer won't turn on.


If it turns hard, the timer may need replaced. But if you can turn the shaft with a pair of pliers and the dryer works, just get a new knob.

The dryer makes a loud squealing noise when running most of the time. Think it is a belt or bearing but cannot figure how to get inside. Top has 2 screws that cannot be reached with standard straignt screw...


Normally you would remove the front of the dryer, then it makes for easy acess of the drum and rollers..
The noise is probably your rollers, either needs lube or replacement

I removed screws just inside door at top of lip this releases top of dryer,,,, exposing drum i rotated drum clockwise to check condition of belt ....looked good ....mine is 7 yrs old ...to soon to be motor problem ....so while turning drum i held start button on and finally motor kicked in and this solved my problem...you might be able to accomplish this without taking of panel ..though you wont be able to see belt ....by turning the drum from inside dryer while someone else turns on start button
