Customer Question
My drier won't start. ...

My drier won't start.

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

About two weeks. I dry my clothes on the shower curtain & a manual dryed rack The clothes dry stiff even when I put fabric softener in the washer.

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

GE9SXH3EA2WW The numbers7/63were on the side of the door

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

If I can arrive at the correct problem. I don't want to buy a part that I don't need. I live on social security, so I can't waste too much money.

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

Merely what part could have caused the problem, the light works, so it has power.

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

Travis, I rebooted the dryer.. Nothing happened. The interior light woirks, that' why Ididn't think that it is a power problem.The starter switch is silent, I don't remember if it clicked or not. does this GE dryer have a fuse or anything installed in it??? I don't want to spend close to $100 fora part that I don't need.

I understand its late tomorrow when you have time double check the model number and I will pull up the parts list for you. The model number you have given me isn't pulling anything up.
