Our problem will be solved if you dismantle the front end of the dryer and first making sure you can do this sort of repair is the main concern.Yes it is a blower problem that may just be a small article of clothing that has made its way through the lint screen opening and lodged itself onto the blower housing.On a GE I believe you have to slide the top forward (this is the top section and to describe it better ,it is where you would stand if you were to climb up on the dryer)remove the cover .There is now access to the screws that hold the front (door assembly/cover)on. Remove any screw that you see that is holding the front end /door on so you can remove the front.PLEASE NOTE:Bottom line is this front panel needs to be removed so you can then pull the blower wheel housing open and see what has happened.You may find that the top cover doesn't have to be removed so observe the front of your dryer and picture the whole front off so you now work on the problem which is on the bottom base and if you follow the path from your lint screen it will take you to the blower which is always in the front of your dryer. Ok ???? Please Rate This & please feel free to call on FIXYA for ALL your questions. Have A Good Day !!

My dryer does not blow hot and will not shut off and no digital reading will display.


Hello Bryan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

So, here are the probable causes:

1.) The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may be plugged up or not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft. Check the blower hot air discharge manifold for blockage.

2a.) If the dryer won't stop, the gas valve solenoid coils might be defective. Over time these coils will fail, causing the burner to run intermittently. If the dryer is not heating properly it may not stop. Replace the coils as a set.

2.b) The heating element warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

3.) Dryer sheets and fabric softener can leave a residue on the lint filter, reducing the air flow. If the dryer won't stop, check to be sure air can flow freely, clean the filter as needed.

4.) Although not as common, if the dryer won't stop it may be because the moisture sensor is either defective or shorted

5.) If the dryer won't stop, check the high limit thermostat. If defective, the high limit thermostat can turn off the heat prematurely, lengthening the time it takes to dry a full load. This is not common.

6.) The cycling thermostat regulates the temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer won't stop, it may be caused by a defective cycling thermostat turning off the heat too early. This is not common.

7.) The thermistor senses the temperature of the air in the dryer and cycles the heat on and off. If the dryer won't stop, the thermistor may be defective. This is not common.

Electric dryer getting way too hot

3-5 ACCESS TO THE BLOWER WHEEL OR THERMOSTATS

To get to the blower wheel, remove the back of the dryer.

The blower wheel is under the bottom of the lint screen duct to your left, as you look at the back of the dryer.

The operating thermostats are at the blower wheel outlet.

In electric models, the hi-temperature cutout thermostat is mounted to the heat riser.

3-6 TEMPERATURE CONTROLS AND HI-TEMP SAFETIES

These clothes dryer machines use operating thermostats to control the temperature inside the drum, and hi-limit thermostats to prevent overheating of the dryer drum.. Many machines also have extra temperature controls, such as bias thermostats and heaters, hi-temperature cutoffs, and thermal fuses.

Bias thermostats are just like regular operating thermostats, except that they are mounted inside a bias heater. When the bias heater is energized, it generates a small amount of heat, which causes the operating thermostat to open sooner, keeping the dryer drum cooler inside. Thus a bias heater allows a single operating thermostat to act like both a hi-temp and a lo-temp operating thermostat.

A thermal fuse is found on the blower outlet, right next to the operating thermostat(s.) This fuse will blow when too high a temperature is sensed at the outlet; usually when one of the operating thermostats has failed. If it blows, the motor may not start, or you may get no heat (no voltage to the burner.)

A thermal cut-off is mounted on the clothes dryer heater box. It is a back-up for the hi-limit thermostat. Whenever you replace it, you should replace the hi-limit thermostat, too. A high-temperature condition causes it to open, an overheated grounded heat element may also cause it to open.

Dryer quit heating suddenly.


The fuse is located on the blower housing and if it was blown the dryer would not run at all. The limits is mounted on the heater housing and that could kill the heat as well as a blown heating element. I worked on a similar dryer not long ago with a heating problem and did a video:

My dryer is about 7-8 years old. It has been taking longer to dry clothes for a little while now but within the last few days will not heat up. Spins fine, just no heat. Breakers are good.Any solutions?


Have you cleaned the blower vent pipes lately. Sounds like the vents may be stopped up with lint and it got too hot. Clean vents and where the fan blade is to be sure the fan can turn. I have found everything you can think of in the blower housing that would keep the fan from turning.Be sure and get the lint out they all have some. As far as the heat not working check all thermastats , the thermal fuse on blower box and thermal cutoff usely on the heater box. and the heater coil also check with an ohmeter from heater coil connections to the metal box it's in ,the coil could be grounded inside the box.
Hope this helps.

Dryer starts then 8-10 seconds later dings,stops,displays code for heater temp.control problem.This is intermittent problem,sometimes it works!


theres a thermistor in the blower housing vent ductwork inside the dryer connected by a red and blue wire and you need to remove and replace this thermistor as they get intermittant from the heat of the exhaust temps,this thermistor monitors the exhaust temp and cycles the element for heat output

Dryer tumbles, no heat


Fist thing to check is if the manual reset on the heater box has tripped. That dryer can be serviced from the front. Also, there is a heater upgrade kit that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts that has several updated parts in it for the top load electric dryers.

There are several things that can cause the reset to pop out. You may have a lint build up behind the shroud where the lint bucket fits.

This is a complicated appliance. You may wish to obtain a service manual for it.

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

INTERMITTENT DRYING


Hi Dave,
I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with a couple of these and let me tell ya they can be a problem to trouble shoot. In most cases from my studies of this machine you can have one of two problems. One the blower motor is going bad and it will stop when it gets hot. When the blower motor stops the heat shuts off. Then when the blower motor cools enough it will start back. Unfortunatley it is usually to far through the cycle to still get the cloths dry. Possibility two is the blower motor controller. It is less expensive than the blower motor. I would recommend you replace the controller and see if the problem is solved. If the problem remains you will need the blower motor. I do have both parts on hand and I can give you prices and part numbers. Just send me your model and I will be glad to help.. Thanks and I hope you get back to wearing dry cloths soon.:-P Mike

GE Profile Harmony Electric dryer blower issue - how do I access?


You have to remove the control panel, dryer top, top heat shield, dryer front, front drum support, belt, and then the drum in that order to get to the heater. I have been working on these since they have been out and have never changed a heater in one, They just dont burn out. Unplug the dryer and take the access cover off where the power cord attaches to the dryer and make sure the wires are not loose or burnt.
