Two possibilities come to mind. one) the drum bearing is shot! second) the drum rides on two felt and plastic "bearings" at the front of the dryer. these felts might be completely worn causing the drum to flop around.

I have a GE dryer, DBXR463EB1WW for the model. The laundry gets warm but does not dry. Any idea what may be the issue

Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about

GE Harmony Dryer makes Loud Vibrating noise

If you can open the walls of the dryer up check all screws and bolts that hold things together. Some times they will vibrate loose causing parts to make a vibrating sound against the frame itself.. Eventually the loose screws will just keep getting looser. Even the screws on the walls of the unit should be tightened That could cause a lot of noise.

Convection oven making rattling sound.

It is most likeky that the fan bearing is worn and thus causing the rattling sound. You will probably need to replace the fan. Check first that there is no obstacle in the way of the fan rotating.

Replacement of the fan will require the back of the oven to be removed giving access to the fan unit, which will need to have the wires disconnected and the fan assembly unbolted. Fitting is the reverse.

Always remember to switch off the power before working on electrical equipment.

Dryer Starts... Then Stops!...

Sounds as if you have a bad motor. That humming is a big give away. Unless its less than 3 years. I would replace it.

DBXR463EB1WW

If the dryer does not make any noise, the most likely cause is a broken belt (WE12M29 for a DBXR463EB1). If the belt breaks, there is a switch near the belt tension arm that cuts power to the dryer so the dryer will not heat without the motor running. (UL requirement) If belt is OK there are host of other potential electrical areas to check, so then better call a service tech.

GE Dryer DVL 223GB1WW

ALWAYS UNPLUG ANY APPLIANCE AND TURN OFF THE GAS VAVE BEHIND THE DRIER BEFORE ATTEMTING TO MOVE IT. I HAVE REPAIRED GAS FIRED EQUIPMENT FOR YEARS ...ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU LOCATE YOUR GAS METER IN THE HOUSE OR OUTSIDE AND HAVE A ADJUSTABLE WRENCH READY. I HAD A GAS VALVE BREAK-OFF IN MY HAND AND, A FLEX-LINE BREAK WHEN I MOVED A DRIER ... I WAS LUCKY I KNEW WHERE THE METER WAS. YOU CANT BE TOO SAFE !!! THE ONLY WAY TO CHECK A BELT IS TO REMOVE IT ... THERE IS A SEPERATE ADJUSTABLE PULLEY THAT ADJUST THE BELT TENSION (USUALLY LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF DRIER BELOW THE DRUM NEAR THE DRIVE MOTOR) YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TO LOOSEN THIS ADJUSTABLE PULLEY TO REMOVE THE BELT. FIND A CLEAR AREA WHERE THE BELT IS NOT ON THE SRUM AND PRESS ON THE BELT ... THERE SHOULD BE NO MORE THAN 1/2" OF "PLAY" ( MOVEMENT)IN THE BELT AFTER YOU REMOVE THE BELT ... TURN IT IN-SIDE OUT. AND SLOWLY ROTATE IT ... INSPECTING EVERY INCH FOR CRACKS AND EVSERSIVE SIDE WEAR. IF THERE ARE ANY CRACKS, VISABLE PLYS (LAYERS) OF THE BELT CAN BE SEEN, OR IT IS REAL SHINNY ON THE SIDES... THE BELT SHOULD BE REPLACED. WHILE THE BELT IS OFF ... USE YUR HAND AND SPIN THE DRUM TO CHECK FOR ANY WOBBLE.... THERE SHOULD BE NO WOBLING ... IF THERE IS IT MAY INDICATE BAD BEARINGS... HOPE THIS HELPED
