Default Dryer taking too long to dry
Model Number: DBXR453EV0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi,

I have a GE dryer, model DBXR453EV0WW.
I need to put it through (at least) 3 cycles to dry my clothes.

There's no buildup of lint, the duct felt seal looks fine.
My only guess is one of the thermostats.
I tested them all for continuity. They seem ok.
Possibly, one of them is shutting off the heat too soon??
If so, I would have no idea which one.
There are 4 of them. Cycling, safety, high limit, and bias. Which one would be suspect?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Regards,
Dave

Is the dryer getting any heat?
When you first cycle the machine on after a minute or two stop it and feel inside the drum, do you feel any heat whatsoever?

Thanks you for your reply.

The dryer does get heat and the clothes eventually dry. It just takes a lot longer than it should.

If you have a meat thermometer stick in the transition hose (slinky tube) and see what the exhaust temp gets to.
Also while the unit is running go to the exterior exhaust port on the outside of the house to feel for adequate air flow.

I don't have a meat thermometer, but I did go to the exhaust port (had to go on the roof!) and there is significant air flow.

See if you can obtain or borrow a thermometer and see if the exhaust temp gets up to 160 -170 range and also watch to see if it cycles back down to 125 - 135 range. Try checking if you can and let us know the results.


If as you said the thermostats are all good and you have good air flow I suspect your heating element might be burnt out and grounded to the heater can. This would only give 120 volts to the element at a reduced temperature and it won't cycle off.
