Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

How long should it take to reach a hot temperature?

Ok, pulled it out...now the louvers are open a little more on the exhaust vent...not blowing air as much as most of my old dryers ever did though. Barely a breeze compared to the weather around here most days!! (Haha)

Shouldn't it really blow? Shouldn't the temp be really warm when you open the door up? (the temp setting is set to HOT)

Try disconnecting the vent at the back of the dryer and run the dryer with the air blowing just into your laundry room for a few minutes. Air flow should be strong and you should feel discharge air heating. It still sounds to me as if the dryer has flex vent and maybe does not line up with the dryer outlet, so that when the dryer is pushed back into place the actual space left for the exhaust air to pass through is very small. If this is the case, there is a telescopic low profile aluminum vent available to solve the problem.

    Adjustable Periscope 18" To 29".
    Adjustable periscope from 18" to 29". Used to reduce space between dryer and wall from 4-1/2" to 2-1/2" for closer clearance. Beveled ends eliminate interference with floors and side walls. Sections separate and can be reversed for easier connection. May also be used for side access venting. All metal rigid construction.

    I have also seen shorter ones, but this one can be cut down too. I always tape the seams with foil duct tape.

Why is water in the dryer vent line


There can be multiple reasons for this. If the vent line exhausts to the outside, it is possible that if the vent louvers are stuck open and rain may enter the line when windblown. More common is that dryer vent air is hot and moist due to the water being evaporated from the clothes. If the vent line runs through a cool/cold area, condensation may form in the vent line. If there are sags in the line, condensed water can accumulate in these places.

Why is my dryer getting too hot


Although there might be a problem with the temperature controls allowing it to overheat, most of the time you will find that low air flow is the culprit. First check all the venting from the rear of the dryer all the way to the outside of the house to make sure there is a clear, open (fully 4" diameter) airway. Mashed ducting, dirty ducting, outside wall caps with stuck louvers, etc. will restrict airflow and contribute to this problem. One method to test this is simple - pull the dryer away from the wall, disconnect the exhaust vent (allowing the dryer to blow into the room for the test) and check the temps. If temperatures are normal (probably 150 -165 degrees) then the problem is the venting. If the problem remains after this experiment, then check the dryer's blower fan to make certain it is not broken, loose or blocked with debris.

Hi there, I have a LG ac through wall/window unit LWHD1200FR 11,500 BTU. It's have a Open vent/Close vent mechanism by the front louver from where the cool air comes out. I would like to know what...


The OPEN is to be used when the air temperature is cool enough, not to have to use the AC. When it's open, the fan continues to operate and pulls cool air in from the outside and circulates it inside the room. Generally, this is only used at night, when temperatures are milder and there's less humidity. When it's CLOSED, the AC is in cooling mode and only the inside air is used to cool and is exhausted as needed. Hot, humid days & nights are when it should remain closed.

I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dryer is only 5 yrs old. Started to blow cool air. Not heating. Vent was blocked from outside. Cleared vent, flab is open, but dryer still not blowing hot air. Is there a reset on this machine? Why...


There is a device in the circuitry for the heating element which shuts off power to the heating element when the dryer gets above a certain temperature which is ealsily reached with a clooged vent hose. This device, a thermal limit switch or thermal fuse, cannot be reset, it has to be replaced.

If you want to do this yourself, let me know -- if not, you will need to arrange for someone to repair the dryer. The device costs about $20 -- a service tech will probably charge up to $150 for the repair.

What is purpose of pull lever on top right of decorative panel


It's an air intake vent damper. If you push it in, the unit won't pull any air from outside, instead it'll recirculate air from the room. If you pull it outward, it allows the unit to pull air from outside. During the day when it's hot outside, the lever should be pushed into the closed position to allow for more efficient cooling. At night, if you want to exchange air from outside when it's cool enough, pull out the lever to allow that to happen. The unit will exhaust hot air no matter if this switch is in or out.

Hot air only, no fresh air or ac air. no engine overheating.


Your hot air keeps coming since the louver get stuck due to mechanism failure inside the ducting console. It usually is controlled by temperature setting. When the setting has no effect then the engagement is loose. Nee to open the dash vent to check out.

Have whirlpool gold accuwave micro hood combo model# GH51884XPS5


The inspector is correct, air should be coming through the top louvers, although you sometimes will have a little air coming from the sides and back. Drop the microwave and see which way the blower is rotated, towards the louvers or towards the back or top. Some units also have a panel that blocks the venting from going the wrong way. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
