GE PROFILE electric dryer. Model# DPSE810EGTWT, Serial

GE PROFILE electric dryer...

GE PROFILE electric dryer. Model# ***** Serial HR800090A Will NOT start. Suspect thermal fuse. Start switch and door switch appear okay. Cannot locate thermal fuse to check it. Where is the thermal fuse? Thank you!

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

10 years old.

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

I'd like to. Belt is NOT broken. Dust vent was pretty much clogged so I suspect the thermal.

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

It was working fine, then NOT. Power goes to controls, and timer left and sensing work, just drum not turning.

Hi. Pull the timer knob off. Check to see if it is cracked.

Timer knob very difficult to remove. Don't want to break it.I'll try to spin the drum now.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Drum spins easily by hand.
How does timer feel if you change settings? Normal or turn hard?

I tested one thermal that is closed (good). I think we'll just get a new one--it's time. Thanks for your help.
Okay. Have a nice day.
