The exhaust vent coming off should not affect the dryer itself. I think that is a red herring. The dryer really doesn't care if it vents into the room or not. It has no way to tell. Vents detaching...

Quick guess is your motor - the centrifugal switch on them closes to provide 1 of the 2 120v feeds to the element when the motor is spinning. Changed many of these motors for this issue.

Yep that's new design. If you've caught the leak before any significant damage to trans has occurred you might get away with just the seal. Usually when I see them its just the beginning. Its worth...

I can't find your model #, double check it for me?

But if it's a modern GE unitized set the tub seal comes out the bottom I believe, on the trans shaft.

You still need the tub free from the shaft...

Good job. Many times even getting the thin one in is a challenge, depends on how fresh the brakes are too.

I'd have to test incoming 220V supply but I'd suspect your relay to be the issue. If you haven't flipped the breaker a few times yet do it.

Can't be certain without testing but this is common on...

Ah... Each defrost will drop a cup or more of water in there. It should dry by evaporation. If it isn't drying it can get nasty. If there isn't much airflow due to clearances around the unit that can...

That really isn't an option on that unit. It's possible but not something that a DIYer really would tackle.

Why do you want it cleaned?

The coil is part of the thermostat that tells the damper when to open/close. It is a sealed tube, so pressure changes in it correlate with temp.

If you run the unit without a damper it will become...
