    The dryer is a GE DPGT 750. Have had it for 3-5 years with no problems. It was heating this two days ago. No heat this afternoon but tub was rotating and blower was blowing. Tried restarting it with no change in performance. Tried to take it apart to get to the heating element. Haven't been able to figure out how to do that. Changed heating elements in our old dryers which was pretty easy.

    My GE DX4500EG3WW dryer is not putting out any heat. It blows out air in the back and it turns, just no heat. How do I fix it?

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Ge profile dryer does not heat at times


Sounds like one of two things.
1) you have a bad connection, specifically, a loose connection that is making contact once in a while.
2) one of the "overheat thermostat switches" is failing.
If you wish to fix it yourself, you will need to dismantle the machine and have a testing instrument to look for the problems.
Be advised, however, if you take it all apart and it happens to be on a "I will be working now, thank you very much" cycle, you may not find anything!
It really needs to be "not working" for the flaw to show up.
Be blessed.

OUR G.E. PROFILE DRYER MOD.# DPGT750EC1PL STARTS AND RUNS LIKE NORMAL, BUT THE BLOWER DOES'NT BLOW. WHAT DO WE NEED TO LOOK FOR SO WE CAN GET THIS DRYER RUNNING? THANKS.


The fan motor must be tested by energizing it and reading volts from timer control. If the fan is faulty it must be replaced, if there is no volts from timer control, then either wiring harness or timer control assembly must be replaced.

Ge harmony dryer not heating up dpgt750ec1pl


If you hear the blower ramp up when you start the dryer and if slowly ramps down or quits all together then you need to replace the blower. If the dryer heats at all then look at the blower.

First use the dryers service mode and see what trouble code you are receiving.

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

There's a 95% chance that it is your blower and your dryer should confirm that.

I just recently replaced the blower in my GE Profile Harmony as well. While I had my dryer apart, I also cleaned the heck out of it. Excellent opportunity to take your vaccum cleaner and get all of those dust bunnies out!

I purchased the blower from www.applicancepartpros.com for about $146 S&H included.


Part No. AP3791484 Item: Motor asm-blower Price $133.05 Plus Shipping.
