Customer Question
My mother has a...

My mother has a GE Adora dryer that isn't starting. The unit has power, the selector knobs, etc function, however, when you push the Start/Pause button the display shows "drying" but nothing happens.

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

Model: DHDVH52EFWW.

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

I would guess she purchased these 12-15 years ago

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

Don't think so. I would like to know whether to explore a switch problem, drum belt issue, motor, or something simpler, like a safety catch on the door . . .

Hi, I'm Ray and would be happy to help you. Does the drum turn very easy by hand or does it have a little tension to it like the belt is still there?

Turns pretty easily. Would there be a safety switch associated the belt tensioner? I hear no motor noise at all when the start button is depressed.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Thanks. I'm not at her location this evening and won't have time to get to it for her until Thursday. Is there a way to get back to you and use the phone option in the event I have other/additional questions when I can get to this?
Appliance Technician: Ray, Home Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago
