Question:

Hi, I am not able to turn the power on for my GE dryer. My husband did remove the plastic exterior push button and I can start the dryer by pushing interior black dome shaped button on with a screwdriver, however I would like to get a replacement part to actually fix the machine. I am just not sure exactly which part is required? I have had the dryer for between 5-7 years. I love GE products and have always used them, however I am a little bit disappointed this time with the washer and dryer I have as both of them are not that old and have required repair already and now again. The first two times on the washer required a service call with repairmen. Thanks for your help and quick response. Sincerely, Janet a. Gross, loyal GE customer

Answer:

Hi Janet, Thank you for contacting Part Select. The start button you need to replace is only sold as part of the Control Panel Assembly - White. Part number PS3487098. The start button is part of the panel and should not be removed so it is not sold as a separate part. Hope this helps!

Hello Roxanne, thank you for contacting us. It is possible for the switch to be faulty causing this issue, also it could be the push to start switch, you can test these with a multi-meter. Hope this helps!

Interlock switch was bad. Prevents the dishwasher form running as it "thinks" the door is still open.

Opened door, removed screw holding down metal plate that presses against interlock switch when door is closed. Removed plastic cover thingy that is over interlock switches. Removed the interlock switch by pressing the plastic lock thingy away from switch. Pulled the wires off each end of the interlock switch. Removed new interlock switch from plastic bag and reversed above procedure. Done, shut door and the dishwasher works.
