Smile Dryer starts but won't stay running
Model Number: DDE 7500 VALAD   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

My dryer starts but stops immediately when I release the start button. It will continue running ( and heat up ) if I hold the start button in but I begin to smell an electrical burning smell when I do that for more than 10 or 15 seconds. I've done quite a few repairs on this old unit and it has served me well but this problem has me stumped. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Default Motor Installation

Hi Simon, thanks for your reccommendation. Can you give me some idea how difficult the motor is to install and if the wiring of the new motor will match the existing wiring exactly? I don't use the dryer much and I'm considering replacing it with a used dryer but if the motor installation is fairly easy I'll just do that. Thanks in advance for your help. Kevin

HI, Kevin.

The motor replacement is not the easiest job but it's basically step by step job. May take you up to 2 hrs.
It look like the wiring is pretty much the same.

Simon.
