dryer would not start

  • Customer: Marie from Charlotte, NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
My husband replaced the rotary start switch that we bought. However, the dryer still would not start. He then tested each remaining switch/dial (before we spent more money on parts) to see if the dryer would start if the electrical connection by-passed that part. None of the top panel switches was the culprit. Then he pulled the door switch. The dryer worked with the switch out, but still connected. He reset each wire, put the door switch back in place, and it failed again. He pulled the switch, added electrical tape to all the connections, and put it back. The dryer works fine now.

*****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.

The control switch broke off flush from the start switch

  • Customer: Jonathan from Chanhassen, MN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
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.

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.

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

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.

I followed the video instructions. I did have to run to the hardware store to pick up a torx screwdriver but otherwise the instructions were perfect. I generally hire someone to do repairs, but this was too easy! I highly recommend doing this yourself as it is definitely a time and money saver. The website made ordering easy and the part arrived quickly!
