The mobile home repair guy came and he said we wouldn't pass inspection the way it was in a mobile home.

He is going to put some type of pipe that helps keep the hose from crinking. Also there is a pipe missing from the flapper, that helps connect the venting.  He said dryer's nowadays are hotter and in a mobile home this would be safer.

Thanks for all the knowledge and help here. You guys make it easier and help those of us novices learn something. You make us feel better too. :)

Okay this is kinda funny. I am using the dryer tonight and it dries great, no more water. I was going to call tomorrow and cancel the service appointment. Lucky I didn't. Something is wrong with the start button. The first load cuts off. I put the second load in and when I turned the knob to set my minutes, the dryer started before I could turn the start button. Oh well. I guess I'll have the repair guy come now. lol

WAIT!!!!, This will probably be even an easier repair. Most likely just a stuck start switch. Just a couple screws to replace the switch and you would be good to go and probably save yourself over $90 which will most likely be the least your going to get away with for labor.

If you want to try to tackle this job with the help available to you here give us a model number from your dryer and we can give you directions on how to proceed and you could order the part right at the top of this page.

Good catch Pegi, now that you say that I remember that was mentioned back in past postings. Thanks.

You are quite welcome, my brain is a trap, nothing escapes. LOL  I would imagine the excessive moisture in the dryer cause this switch to weld together.  Watch this dryer closely BUG2, as other problems may develop because of the moisture problem, but you do not need to mention this to the G.E. people or they might decide to void the warranty on this dryer.  However it might have just been ready to do this so good you found out while it is in warranty.  ;)
