Customer Question
My dryer suddenly stopped...

My dryer suddenly stopped working. Makes a sound, but nothing happens. Only 3-4 years old & have had no prior trouble. Wondering if it could be a belt? Not sure how to access it to check. Ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Let me check...

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

GE Profile #DPSR610EG8WT

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not sure what this is, but another number was listed: DV71044
