Default GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC1PL not drying
Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have ge profile harmony dryer and it runs but will not dry clothes after one cycle. I ran the trouble check and it points first check inlet thermistor then to blower motor is not getting up to speed. However when I let it sit overnight and ran it this morning had heat and ran which makes me think it is the inlet thermistor being flakey.
My model is DPGT750EC1PL and it appears to have two thermistor's one shows as 471 on parts diagram on appliancepartspro, the other is 272 at back of drum. I think 471 is inlet thermistor but not sure and then what is best way to access it to replace it? ie take off front or back panel and any things to watch for when removing panel to get access since Dryer is five years old and has never been serviced.

The inlet thermistor is located on the inside of the inlet air duct and is shown as #272 on the diagram. In order to remove the thermistor you have to remove the inlet thermistor access cover located on the back of the dryer.

You may want to clean all air ducts inside the dryer and the vent line outside the dryer all the way through the vent outlet before replacing any parts.

If it would not help, I would replace both thermistors due to intermittent problem.

- The inlet thermistor Part number: AP3794646

Part number: AP3794646



- The outlet thermistor Part number: AP3794837

Part number: AP3794837

Default how to get to second thermistor

Thanks,
I bought both thermistor's and the inlet is easy to replace.
Question is how to get to the outlet thermistor, it looks like there are a number of screw on the back panel and looks like it is also under the back of the control console. Does the control console have to come off to remove the back panel or should it slide out from under it?

The outlet thermistor is located on the blower housing in front of the dryer. You can access it by removing the front panel.

Hi Gene, We are having the exact same issue with our dryer and I have always fixed my own appliances, but this dryer is harder to figure out. I did come to the conclusion that the problem was the thermister(s), but I feel like I am going to break the front panel when I try to get it off. Is there a trick to getting it off? Thanks!

Question Did it work??

My dryer is having the same problem. My question is has anyone actually been able to figure out what needed to be replaced?? I tried the inlet thermistor so far and it did not work. Please let me know.

Default same problem

I actually have the same issue going on also. My dyer will heat up a little bit not full temp after it has been cooled down. Also there is no circulation going through it no air out the exhaust. I had a tech come and open it up last night and he had no idea what the problem could be. He had guessed that the magnet that controls the blower fan was not working properly. My problems are everything spins fine but no heat is coming into it only after letting it sit overnight there is a small amount of heat, and there is no air coming out the exhaust. Please help.

I'm trying to beat this problem too!
Take a look at my post-
I'm thinking GE uses a Blower Motor that is failing consistantly.
If anybody gets this problem resolved try and add to each others posts!
