Dryer would not turn on

Troubleshooting was the hardest thing to do in this repair. the first thing I found wrong was the thermal overload was bad. That was easy to replace since that is on top of the housing for the heating coils and easy to reach. Only 2 screws hold it in place. Once I replaced that the dryer would start but, the temperature was off the chart. Now I know why that part broke. The control Thermostat was a little harder. That is held in by 2 screws but it is in an awkward place. I replace the 2 slotted screws with nut driver type screw which made it easier to place the screws in such a small area. Once the control thermostat was replaced the dryer worked great

Dryer kept eating clothes! They'd catch between the door panel and drum.

*****I HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying both bottom felt and top felt with glides and replacing them as a pair. Do it now!!****

First I removed the screws on the top of the control panel and lifted the control panel free. Next I pried the top cover off the drier. Reaching down inside the drier, I removed 2 screws holding the front panel in place (one on each side of the drum, screw heads are INSIDE the appliance) Then the front panel popped off toward the front, leaving the drum dangling inside the cabinet. I removed the old top felt and glides one piece) which had nothing left to them. I used a rag soaked with Acetone and a putty knife to remove the old adhesive and clean the mating surface. Following the supplied instructions (that came with the part) I glued the new piece in place. I reassembled the dryer and tested it out - I recommend giving all internal air ducts a good vacuuming while the dryer is apart - and everything seemed OK for a week. Then another article of clothing fell prey to the dryer, becoming lodged between the drum and front panel again. I suspect the culprit is the space BELOW the drum where the bottom felt is worn much more than the brand new felt just installed. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying both bottom felt and top felt with glides and replacing them as a pair.

Clothes snagging and getting stained in dryer

Hardest part was getting the top off which ended up being quite easy, once I knew how. At the front of dryer, between the top and the cabinet, there are two spring clips that hold the top to the bottom. I could feel them with the putty knife but wasn't sure how to release them. Push on them with the blade of the stiff putty knife ... push hard and they will release. When the top was off I could see the screws that held the front. I unscrewed those, had easy access to the front glide that needed to be replaced. Pulled the old one off, followed the directions to glue the new one on, gave it about an hour to dry, reassembled and away we went. No more snagging.

Terrible squeaking sound

  • Customer: Michael from Shrewsbury MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Squeaking was coming from the back of the drum, not the glides. The hardest part was trying to figure out how to pull the drum out. With a little extra tug, the back pin of the drum lifted out of the socket. That was the cause of the sqeak. Just cleaned it up and added some grease and good as new. I noticed the front glides were worn and replaced it.

The control switch broke off flush from the start switch

My wife was attempting to start a load of laundry when the start knob came off in her hand. I figured the inside of the knob had broken loose and the stem from the rotary start switch would be sticking out, well the stem had broken off flush and the knob was fine. After ordering a replacement, I jerry rigged the broken one with a large screw driven into it and put it back in place, worked great, just had to put a screwdriver into the screw and turn it to get the dryer to start. I felt it was fine to stay that way but the wife insisted we install the new one to put the knob back in place. The new switch arrived very quickly and went into without a problem, just four screws to remove the panel, two wire connections and was working again.

I turned off the power, unscrewed the 4 screws from the top of the dryer. I then opened it and turned the switch that was in there counterclockwise exactly as utube video said to do. I then took off the two wires from the old switch. The rotary start switch fix right in where the old one was. I put the panel back together, put on the old knob and turned the power back on! It took less than 15 minutes from start to finish! If I can do it anyone can! Joanne Klinkhammer Cecil, Wisconsin

It took longer to vaccume the lint out of the machine than to change the part.

The part replacement is done without any tools.

My wife could have done it

I ordered the rear bearing kit from the local supplier here in Marsh Harbour, Abaco the Bahamas. Delivery for the kit was 3 to 4 weeks from my local supplier.NOT PARTSELECT.
While waiting I found this site and after reading the VERY helpful instructions from your customers, I realised that I would probably need additional parts, top and bottom front felt seals, maybe a new drive belt.
I ordered these online and had the parts deliverd to a friends address in West Palm Beach Florida. The parts arrived in about 2 days. My wife was already there and brought the parts back.

Installation was very straight forward. Read the other installation reports and you will not have a problem.
The only thing I can add is, DO NOT LOOSE THE SMALL BALL BEARING. I did and it took me about an hour to find it.
My suggestion is to do a dry run installation of the bracket WITH OUT the small ball bearing. Tape the backing plate?that keeps the ball breaing inplace to the outside of the back panel with duct tape so that the screw hole will line up. Once this is done put some grease (Supplied with the kit) in the hole on the nylon bracket and attach with the two screws, do not over tighten. Grease up the area where the rear bearing shaft support will sit.

Installation of the rear bearing shaft support was straight forward. This is on the dryer drum. Extra hands are must for this.

I was very pleased with Partselct.
Dryer works like new.

We are a retirement community and when we opened March '07 the company purchased GE washer and dryers to go in our common area laundry rooms for the residents to use. Because of their age, they will often turn the knob counter clockwise and not the right diirection which breaks the device which is not good. With in 3 days of installation they had broken 2 of the new knobs.
But, the ordering was simple, the shipment was fast and the install was quick for the maintenance tech.
