Default Dryer Part - What is this thing?
Model Number: DWSR475EY1WW   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hey All,

New to the forum, and am no expert. Have fixed various appliances, but I was given this GE electric dryer that looks like it was made in year 2000 by the serial number. The attached photo shows arrows to two pieces of bands (metal?) that seem to loosen and no longer sit flush with the unit while drying, and catch small items like shoe strings or dryer sheets. They have already caught and torn several items before I noticed this was happening!

WHAT ARE THESE and is there any way to make them 100% flush, or can I remove them? I don't want to wake up one night while smelling something burning because it is caught in these things! Please HELP!

*EDIT... Forgot to mention that these bands are just below the lint catch on the inside of the panel, but do not turn with the drum.

Looks like the dryer sensor bars Should be able to glue them back in place but doubtful they will stay.

Does it look like a moisture sensor?
Do you use a settinging that lets you set your drying cycle to: very dry, dry, damp?
