Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

Hello all I have a GE DCLR333ETOWW Electric dryer. When we got it the start button was missing so I had the Blue and Brown Wires sticking out and we would just touch them together for a second and the dryer would come on. Well earlier today my wife accidentally touched the wires to the metal case and it sparked and now the dryer will not work. I have traced the wires to the motor and the power goes to the switch so I do not know where to get testing from here. If anyone has a diagram of the wires or can offer some assistance that would be great. Thank You

First things first. Electric dryers are 220v on a double breaker in your breaker box. (120v for the motor,120v for the heater element). When your dryer sparked, it probably tripped the breaker. Note: you REALLY need to buy a switch an get those exposed wires back inside of the dryer where they belong...just sayin'

SOURCE: touch screen

As a thought you may want to re-initiate the electronics. Don't know if this can help but it might:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.
This takes you through a processes of initializing the touch screen. I have a different problem on my Harmony dryer but I've used this to check diagnositcs.

Regards,

Robert...

A couple of wires came loose on the start switch GE Dryer.


If there are only two wires to the button it doesn't matter. The button would make the electrical connection between the two to start the cycle.

Dryer won't stay running


I had the same problem with my kemore. Thank goodness I still had it under warranty.
The tech said the door latch was just slightly ajar. This is common he said that when we take clothes out we let the door close to hard or gets ajar for leaning in to take clothes out.
He readjusted it and I have never had a problem with it again.
Hope this helps
