I have a GE dvlr223eg6ww dryer. Sometimes it stops after a few minutes of drying. The clothes still wet. I just push the start button and it start again. Sometimes I have to repeat this several times. Usually happens in the Optimum Dry setting I have not done anything yet to fix it.

Today's dryers have many sensors and a fuse to prevent overheating and possibility of a fire. This is good.
Unfortunately, today's factories are often highly automated, and today's machines seem to collect a lot more lint deep inside because of looser fitting components. This lint seeps into the whole machine, and causes those many sensors to "pop".
Someone needs to dismantle the whole machine and clean out the lint.
Be blessed.

did you clean the LINT filter? try vacuuming the lint trap area. wet or damp lint can get built up in the lint trap area. it is good to regularly clean the area as it is a Major fire hazard.

I have a 4 year old GE dryer, model DBXR463ED2WW, that just stopped. When I turn the start button all it does now is buzz. I have checked the circuit breakers and the door closure / connection.

We always begin with basics:

When you checked the power supply, did you try unplugging the dryer, waiting a few minutes and plugging it back in? Be sure that you are standing in a dry area when you do this and that your hands are dry. This is called a hard reset and may reset the dryers operating system.

Have you cleaned the lint filter?

Have you recently noticed any evidence that your dryer might be getting too hot, such as melted or scorched streaks on clothing?

Has the dryer smelled too hot?
Have you noticed that clothing coming from your washer seems to wet? As if it the spin fuction might not be working properly. Items that are too wet can cause the dryer to become too hot, and stop working completely.

If none of this seems to be a problem, and you have checked the power supply, then it could be the belt that turns the drum, particularly since the dryer does make some noise. Has there been any odor of hot rubber?

If this is the case, I would call a local business who repairs appliances, since yours would no longer be under warranty (Unless you have a service agreement). I would explain the problem and all that we have done so far, and request an estimate for a service call and have it repaired if possible. The lifetime of a dryer should go well beyond 4 years.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The dryer begins to heat runs a few minutes then cuts off

First, wet clothes are electrically conductive. With electronic sensing dryers as the wet clothes tumble, they touch the two metal bars in the drum.8e70df0.jpg There is a capacitor on the control that is trying to build up a charge, but when wet clothes create a short from one bar to the other, this charge is released to the frame of the dryer, therefore discharging the capacitor. As long as the capacitor charge is low, the control knows the clothes are wet. As the clothes become dryer, they short the bars fewer and fewer times. Once the capacitor charge builds to a certain level, the control knows the clothes are mostly dry, and it advances the program to the final timed portion, usually less than 20 minutes, some of which is a cool down portion to reduce wrinkling. If your dryer is shutting off after only 10 minutes, that means the control capacitor is never getting discharged. This can be due to a few different reasons: 1. Sensing bar wire is disconnected or broken; 2. Load is not large enough (remember the bars must be contacted repeatedly); 3. Bars are "coated" by fabric softener build up and need to be cleaned with Windex or 409. 4. Defective control board. 5. Airflow is restricted and moisture can't escape the drum. 6. Corrosion built-up on sensing board connection.(yank out the board and clean the contacts that sometimes is all it takes on some models) Address the airflow condition and load size. Clean the sensor bars and make sure the wires are all connected securely.

I have a ge profile dryer model dpsb513eboww and the sensor dry doesn't work properly. It runs 3 minutes then shuts off. The clothes are still wet. All else works fine.

You should inside the driver and on the front or back wall will be the sensor: two metal bars that send an electric current through the clothing. When the dryer detects more current goes through, it knows the clothes are still wet and keep running. If the sensor bars are broken, disconnected, or dirty, it will read no current and think you put clothes in there that were already dry. Make sure those contacts are nice and clean. Failing that, you'll need to test the sensor circuit for voltage to see what the problem is.

Turns off after a few minutes

sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

GE Profile Harmony Electric Dryer - Starts out heating but then screen says SENSING

nicknames, usually with long dry times I suspect a pinched or clogged vent. Make sure you check that first. You can do a test to check the moisture sensor. The 2 sensor bars will be on the inside of the drum just below the vent cage. Press the home and then help button. Next press and hold the help and start/stop button for 3 seconds. On a dry sensor, you should see a voltage of approx 4.75 displaying. Now get a wet rag and hold them across the 2 sensor bars. You should see the voltage drop to about 1.0 volts. If it does this your sensor is ok. Check the vent and this out first and we will take it from there. Catriver.
