GE Profile Harmony Dryer DPGT750ECPL will not turn on or wake up

4 posts in this topic

Our dryer will not from time to time...wake up or turn on when pressing any button. I have to take the screws out of the top thing and flip it over and reseat or wiggle all of the wires around then put it all back together. It usually works for a few months. However, last night it kept doing this. There is obviously a short somewhere but I have no idea how to figure out what is shorting out or what to do from here. I'm handy, have a voltage meter etc but get lost in electonic wires and such as this thing has.

Any wisdom oh great one?

Not a short circuit but rather a incomplete circuit. A bad wire most likely. With the control panel open and power applied move one wire at a time,then press the start button. When it wakes up,the last wire moved is the likely culprit. A new wire or new connector nay be necessary to correct it. Check all wires as they go through the bulkhead for pinching. Feel the length of the wires with your thumb and forefinger for a thin spot in the wire insulation. Last resort is to check each wire for resistance from end to end.

What is the big white box on top of the dryer under that head piece? It seems sort of sealed and has wires coming and going? I'll try to do as you say this weekend. It was working last I knew and my wife pretty much lets me when it don't right away with the ol...."fix this @#$% dryer again...pllleeeaaasse!"
