GE dryer starts but..... stops

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

I was given a kenmore, Lady kenmore ultra fabric care washer by my girlfriends mother. It worked fine, we oved it, all hookups seem to be correct, hot water is hot, cold is cold, I was able to do one load...

I had this same problem. I hired a repairman, which I highly recommend you do too. He found that the tub's base was corroded. The agitator wouldn't properly spin, and that had something to do with it ability to drain properly. My clothes were coming out sopping wet. He replaced the tub (at a cost of about $450), and then washer was as good as new. He said that washers and dryers that are made now aren't made nearly as well as these oldies. He said it should be in good working order now for the next 30 years.

Valh my dryer model fer641fso wont start when i push the start button it does this low beeping sound bought brand new only owned for 5 months worked fine all day yesterday stopped working last night.

If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly. OR The start capacitor may have failed and i would not suggest you deal with that as they give out a nasty electrical charge, also check and clean all filters and check your user manual for further advice as your machine should still be under warranty, call the numbers listed in your manual. good luck

Try a different cycle, the timer may just be hung up a bit. Also, check that the door latches properly. Any looseness, or noticeable debris should be addressed. Always unplug the dryer first before doing any probing.

Kenmore Elite Dryer 61062 needs a guru

You may have a defective door latch switch as well. This is the push button switch located inside the door frame. It toggles (pushes in) when the door is closed, shuts the drum light off, and enables the circuitry to allows the drive motor to work. If this button is not making contact properly, the dryer will just beep when you attempt to start it. I mention this just in case you may have overlooked it.

However, if you have determined that you defintely have a bad start switch on the operator console, the switches are generally not sold as a separate part. Most of the push button type consoles for the Kenmore Elites have a keypad as part of an operator interface board inside the front panel. You will need to replace the interface board in order to correct the problem as these boards generally are not serviceable. If you post back with your COMPLETE model number, I can look up the part information for you. I hope this helps.
