Number 1 Do NOT! use this dryer until it is fixed, it a a fire hazard. You will need to get the entire power circut checked for shorts. Make sure the motor has been checked under the same conditions as it is used in the dryer, with a capasitor and changing directions etc.
NEVER EVER !!! Change a Circut breaker with a higher value than the one which is there. You will burn the house down. This is a serious fire risk. The power cables over heat and arc then burn, if the breaker is not right.
If you've ruled out a loose connection either before or after the element then work backwards. It sounds like there's a switch that isn't closing but don't rule out a bad connection somewhere in the circuit or a problem with the timer.
UNPLUG UNIT remove three screws in back of dryer holding top, from in front of machine slide top to back of unit to remove, now you will see secrews securing panel to unit also two secrews come from inside unit to the front after these 4 screws lift user innerface panel straight up..
Now after that ck for connectors loose or unpluged hopefully, if not your going to need the tech sheet and a elec . meter to test system
Even tho the door lock light is working the switch has dropped a leg supplying power to the rest of the machine. Repace the door switch and you should be good to go. Even tho you have a GE it was made by frigidaire for GE. Common problem with the newer switches. They have gone back to the originals as the replacement for this.
Sounds like the control panel may be dead. If you cannot get any lights
to come on at all on the front panel, its probably a goner. You can
check the voltage coming out of the control pc board via the schematic
inside the dryer panel. I have this same exact problem. I replaced the
control board 3 times because the panel seems fine if i plug it into an
external power supply but will not work when plugged into my dryer. I
have my jumpered and running off of a circuit breaker. I have checked every part in the entire unit. That was over 2 years ago. I still need to get a control panel and see if it fixes mine but after dropping $130 on the control board, i feel i could buy another dryer with the $200 they want for the control panel. Also this dryer seems to streak my clothes with brown or rust colored spots. The dryer is spotless inside. I even took off the rubber seal because i thought the glue is what was possibly doing it when it heated up but that didn't help either....This dryer sucks.
Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
Sounds like maybe a door switch, thermostat or the thermal fuse. You can check for continuity across the terminals with dryer unplugged. Usually the thermal fuse and thermostats are located by the heating element
