Exclamation GE Gas Dryer Extra Time to Dry
Model Number: DWSR405GB0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My GE gas dryer is taking longer to dry clothes, after the cycles ends clothes still damp in seams, pockets, thicker areas. I hear the burner ignite and it burns for about a minute and then shuts off. Then after 30 to 40 seconds, I hear the burner reignite and repeats the short burn cycle. Burner not on long enough to reach high heat. What is the problem and the fix? I hope an expert can help me out. Thanks!

Check for a clogged or restricted vent.

Will do. In the past I have cleaned the unit of lint, however, I only cleaned the front panel of the unit. Meaning the lint trap and blower areas. This time I will go further by removing the drum and clean the diffuser assembly. I suspect the dryer sheets cause the air path parts to become coated and therefore enabling lint to adhere to air path surfaces.

Pay particular attention to the external vent, especially if there is a long distance from your dryer to the outside. In my area, they build houses with the vents going through the roof...Arrrrggghhhh.

I appreciate your suggestion, however, for my home the laundry is located in the garage and so the external vent is very short. The vent is immediately behind the unit. But I know what you mean, there are 2 story home out here and the laundry room located NOT adjacent to exterior walls so the exhaust vent path run through ceilings for over 12 ft. I suppose those vents would be cleaned ala chimney flues.

Did the job today and I did not find a lint blockage. There was quite a bit of lint build-up behind the blower fan. I removed the fan, and thoroughly cleaned out the lint. I also cleaned the fan in water and dish detergent. Cleaned the blower box and the exhaust pipe and the connector pipe to the external vent; no blockages found. The load was dry, and I used the normal time setting as I used to use. So far so good.
