My GE dryer model GTX42GASJ2WW filter does not slap into place and protrudes

This will often happen of lint builds up and then gets dislodged so that the filter won't fully seat. What I do once a year is remove the top cover of the slot so that I can get a pot brush and a vacuum crevice tool down there. They are held by about 4 screws, inside the drum and on top. https://www.google.com/search?q=GE+dryer+model+GTX42GASJ2WW+filter ..

Why is my 30Amp 250Volt ceramic GE dryer fuse blowing? GE GTDS560EF0WS

Typically there are only 3 things that are going to cause a 30 amp fuse to blow, you either have a short circuit or a ground problem, or possibly an overload condition which means something is seizing up, Where yours actually runs for a while before blowing I would suspect that something is seizing up, or you have an intermittent ground or an intermittent short circuit, I would check to see something seizing up first, an intermittent ground or short it would be more difficult to find

Dryer will only run if I hold down power button after replacing broken belt

Check the actuator on the door switch, I know if you activate it manually it seems to work so it might be a problem with the actuator not making the switch

GE DRS495EG8WW Dryer stops during timed dry but when I push start it restarts but for only a few minutes.

Question edited to add some capital letters and the word 'Dryer'. All the symptoms of an overheat situation, normally due to restricted air flow. Check the lint filter, down below it, the exhaust pipe behind, the hose if there is one, and the flaps on the external wall exhaust port. You can also pull the dryer out, remove the hose and run a load with no exhaust to test. If it still does it, you need to strip down and test the 3 heat management sensors.

My dryer leaves burn marks on the clothes. What

Hi. Thanks for using fixya. I can help you. When clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set. Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it. Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it. small_8_13.jpg

How do I remove the Control Panel to GE dryer GFD45ESSM1WW?

On that model, look for screws below the kick strip (parts 238). After removing that, look for screws to remove the front panel where the lint filter is (parts 502). Don't stretch the wires to the door switch. The link also has a full parts schematic showing the screw locationshttps://www.geapplianceparts.com/store/parts/assembly/GFD45ESSM1WW....

Can i repair the timer shaft on a GE dryer

Hey Linda, thank you for the question. If you are talking about the timer of your GE dryer, if it is stop working completely you may need to replace it with the right part number. For me to locate the compatible timer of your dryer I need model number of your dryer. You can not repair the timer of your dryer but you can clean the carbon or any dust particles come in between the knob and timer switch causing the timer to behave abnormally. You can get access by removing the top cover using a putty knife. Clean or clear the terminals where the harness connect to the switch. I hope this will clear the issue. Thanks again for the great question.

I have a GE electric dryer that is barely a year old. I will not start when I push the button. Is there a reset button on a GE dryer?

Try pressing on the door switch and running it with the door open, if it works you need to replace the door switch

2019 GE GTD72EBPN0DG electric dryer, took front off and dropped it ripping wires apart.

Question edited for clarity. Question moved from Cars and Trucks category. Did you look inside the back console where the control knob is for the wiring diagram? They are normally inside there in a plastic bag. It is only for the door switch, so it is just a two wire, open / closed circuit. Join blue to blue, and pink to yellow. There are generic GE Door Switch replacement videos here. https://www.google.com/search?q=gtd72ebpn0dg+replace+door+switch https://www.google.com/search?q=GTD72EBPN0DG+door+wiring+diagram ..

GE GUD27GGSSM2WW gas dryer timer replacement.

Service manual and the wiring diagram is here, but Gas appliances should only be worked on by a certified gas technician. Working with upgraded or changed copy parts is a nightmare. Direction should come from North Pacific Timer, as they will know what the contacts do, and in conjunction with GE, they know what the wires do. The wires should fit into the same locations on the timer. Did you take a picture before you disconnected it? https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1546860/Ge-Gud27essmww.html?page=77#manual ..

GE Dryer DBXR463ED1WW Was roaring help ?

The noise was probably a bad support roller - likely cause for it not starting after reassembly is the door switch was probably not reconnected

Hi, my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is LOUD!

Roaring could be an over firing burner or fan related. Squeak or rumbles are bearings. Is the noise all the time or only when the burner is on? Eric

Have something stuck in between the drum and my dryer wall. Please help. I'm sure I can fix it myself if I had the instructions.

Question moved form GE Land Phones. Is it clothes like a sock or underwear? Take a wire coat hanger and un-twizzle it with pliers. Pull the door gasket back a bit and slip the hooked end between the inner and outer drum. Pull the item to the front. You can turn the drum to help the item catch onto the hook.
