GE dryer dwsr463eg7ww timer isn't working and doesnt heat up


The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/7-3-850356-/GE-Dryer-won-t-stop-DWSR463EG7WW

Blowing cold air


This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.

Dryer will not turn off is it the timer? the dial does not move


do you have heat?when the dryer heats up the timer doesn't move,when the heat shuts off the timer moves,when the heat comes back on the timer stops,the timer will not move if there's no heat.if you have heat it could be the timer.also run the dryer when it's cold for 15 to 30 minutes and check to see if the flame is still liting,there's a little cover on the front panel that you can pop off to see the flame,there's a set of gas coils on top of the gas valve that when they fail they will stop working when they heat up,when the coils cool down they will let the gas through and the flame will lite again,common problem with gas dryers and most likely your problem.also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer,you need to blow out the vent line if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,make sure the outside vent is clear so the air can blow through,next you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year moreso with gas so you don't have a fire,also your clothes will dry on time and you'll have less problems with the dryer.let me know what you find.

Dryer works but is only blowing cold air. just bought the dryer last year and have already had it repaired once.


my Samsung was in a flood(so solution may only apply to floods), changed heater assembly, still blowing cold air, turned out to be the little black box on the generator, took box cover off,cleaned the connectors in box and voila...instant heat

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

No heat


vpflueger,
Hi,
I am not sure why.
But I will tell you that at only 5 years old you should repair it.
This is a fine machine!
