GE Profile Elec Dryer DPSE810EG4WT

5 posts in this topic

All of a sudden my GE Profile Dryer (DPSE910EG4WT) stopped working.  It has power but when I push the start button it just makes a clicking noise.  I have opened up the front and top.  The belt is still secure.  Nothing seems wrong with the door latch...closes tight like it always has.  Any other suggestions are welcome.

Does the drum turn freely if you turn it by hand?

Yes it does turn freely but the belt seems to be snug around the drum.

Open the control panel and measure the voltage between the orange and purple wire on the J5 connector  and with the dryer plugged in.  Should be about 120vac.  

 

Then press the start button.  Should drop to about 0vac. 

 

Report.

I really appreciate your help.  Now I'm venturing into a realm I don't know much about.  The orange and purple wires (along with 2 others) are encased in plastic creating the male end that fit into a plastic encased female end.  I know this will sound dumb but I assume they must be connected in order to measure the volt diff, right?  When these 2 plastic encased male and female ends are connected there is no exposed metal.
