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:

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

I have a 1987 toyota celica gt and the heater won't come on, the blower works but no heat, fuses are good but no heat


This problem is specific to the Gen4 Celica (86-89). Intermittent or no heat heat is caused by cracked solder joints in the Heater Control Panel. You need to remove the panel and re-solder the solder joints. When electrical continuity is broken, the panel defaults to the cold setting. If you go over a bump and it touches again, you may get hot. Hence, intermittent or no heat. We have the complete DIY fix posted at www.st162.net and it's free. Pic below shows the heater control points to re-solder.

Dryer heater not working


If it is an electric heater that means that either the heating element, or the thermistor , or the cirrcuit breaker connecting the element must be replaced.

You find diagrams and replacement parts here, just enter the model number.

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

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.
