Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
I can start my GE DBSR453EBWW dryer, but I have to continuously hold the start switch to run it. I tried to change to use different timer options, but canot solved the probelm. Normally, After start the dryer, it automatically finish the cycle. Is it the problem of the start switch?
There is a relay (or switch "holding" coil-this is where the name came from) which performs this task for you. Unfortunately, the relay has passed away (or a loose wire friend) so the relay must be reborn. Open the unit and trace wires from the switch. Trace wire (or pcb traces) until you come to a rectangular relay (about 2 inches by about 2 inches). I don't know this exact model, but there may be a mechanical relay. Even if you find a solid sate relay, it must be bench tested for operation. Label the wires and then remove them from relay. apply power to the coil and verify switching activity.
