GE Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
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

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
