Regarding this, why is my GE dryer not working?
If the switch does not have continuity, replace it. The drive motor turns the drum and the blower wheel to exhaust the air. Before replacing the motor, first check the thermal fuse, start switch, and door switch. On most dryers, when the dryer belt breaks, the motor will still run, but the drum won’t turn.
Furthermore, is there a reset button on a GE electric dryer? Check the Power Whether you have a gas or electric dryer, it has to plug into a wall outlet, and the breaker controlling the outlet may have tripped. If so, you can reset it by turning it all the way off, then on again. You can reset it by pressing the reset button on the front of the plug.
People also ask, what would cause my dryer not to start?
If your dryer won’t start, the most likely causes are a lack of power, a defective door switch, a blown thermal fuse or a bad start switch. Open the dryer door and check if the light inside the dryer turns on. If it doesn’t turn on, check your power cord and the house circuit breaker.
How do I know if the thermal fuse is blown?
Touch the left multimeter lead to the left side of the thermal fuse; touch the right multimeter lead to the right side of the fuse. Keep an eye on the multimeter needle; a needle that fails to move indicates a blown thermal fuse. If this is the case, don’t fret: thermal fuse replacement is a simple task.
