Customer Question
Hi Everyone, Contractor's Assistant:...

Hi Everyone,

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We have a GE dryer Model: GFDN100EL0WW. It powers on but when you push the start button it sounds like a switch or relay is failing to kick the dryer on. I'll need to repair myself as I am on a small island. Appreciate any advice? Joe

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It's probably about 7-8 years old. There is no identifier on the appliance other than GE and the model # is off the label on the door.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Thanks. Just discovered that dryer won't start. As I said, it powers on but when you press the start button you hear a switch or relay clicking but the drum doesn't start.
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 7 months ago

so​ this is either a bad thermal fuse or control board. Do you have a multimeter you can test the fuse with?

No, I don't have one, but I could ask around.
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 6 months ago

th​at would be best. If you can get one we can test the really cheap fuse that could be causing this if its failed we can replace it. If its good then we know the board is the problem.
