No heat in dryer, sparks coming from heater


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. The symptom you describe is typical of a broken heating element. The heating element on GE models comes as an assembly. Item 1215 of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=208108&diagram_id=21357126#d21357126

Your dryer has a single element and I do not know of a single element "re-string" element kit for the single element dryers. You may be able to contact a local appliance parts & repair source to find the roughly $40.00 element only replacement part. As far as I know the "element only" has been dis-continued. Sadly this reults in a substantial cost to the consumer to purchase the whole assembly at $160 - $172.00. There may be new old stocks still on the shelf somewhere for the element only. I would at least make a few local appliance repair parts calls before ordering the assembly.
Just doing the math as to what you may expect to have the dryer repaired by a technician.
Costs:
Service call $50 - 75.00
Labor $100.00 (Average)
Part: $160.00 + shipping / tax
Your looking at nearly a $300.00 repair on the low end of costs and they only go up from there. (Just being VERY honest)
The can be additional problems that are found like a belt, idler, drum guide, or a blower fan. Often elements fail due to poor airflow that is caused by either blocked air flow or a broken blower fan.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How to replace ge dryer heating element


you will need to remove the drum for this one.  once it is out, the element is mounted on the back of the unit.  not a hard repair, just lay out the parts as you take it apart to give you some order as you re-assemble it.

No heat


Most likely you have a burnt element....A good handy man could replace the element fairly easily.. Cost of a new element about $50-$75

Dryer runs but does not get hot and dry


It runs since the motor is still working and turning the drum. No heat since the heater element is broken so no heat got produced to dry clothes. Replace the heater element to correct the problem. Good luck

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat


Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...

Dryer Shuts off with full load


ok so it runs for the full time set when on timed dry. auto from optimum or less dry runs quickly, correct?
Auto runs on yours by advancing the timer whenever the thermostat is satisfied with the temp coming out. This has a wire that runs from the heater to a resister mounted in the console area then to the timer providing the power to run the timer motor. Most commonly the heater is the cause. GE dryers have 2 elements side by side that operate indepenently but if one goes out the unit will still heat but the circuit for auto is like the heater is off advancing the timer.
the heater is located behind the drum on the wall. first measure the resistance on the resister, i believe 1.4 k ohms see diagram behind it.
to get to heater, remove 2 phillips screws inside door opening top holding top down. then lift top and slide to left if plastic console. to unhook from console. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet, disconnect wires at bottom left on panel. reach inside on bottom (2 hands may be necessary) pull tensioner arm to right and hook on motor side, it will stay there till pushed. you will get red grease on you. Now you can pull the drum straight out, its a tight fit up front you can remove a side screw to help. you now have an excellent view of the heater. any breaks in either coil?

DRYER SPINS BUT WILL NOT HEAT


The heating element is located in a pan on the rear wall of the dryer. You must remove the front and drum to access it. Start by opening the door and removing the screws that hold down the top. Then you can easily get the front off. In a GE dryer almost 100% of the time it is going to be the heater element.

Dryer not heating properly..taking longer to dry clothes


If there's heat inside the drum the heater coils should be ok, however your model has 2. With the door open and the machine running, look inside at the back of the drum and look for 2 glowing element coils. If one is not working you will not have enough heat.
Check the exhaust vent, make sure it's not kinked or squished behind the machine and that the outside vent is not clogged with lint. You should feel air blowing freely to the outside.
If there is no heat, first check for 240V at the outlet. If you have 240V, it could be the element, the hi-limit thermostat, the thermal cut-off, the timer, the motor or a wiring issue (loose or shorted).
Good luck!.
