Question and Answers


start knob DBSR453EB3WW Ge Electric dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems of the dryer.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your GE Dryer model number  DBSR453EB3WW.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

There is two things to look at.  It sounds mostly like the starting switch itself,  I have it on the link below.  The next item to check will be the lid/door switch.   If you have or can get a meter you can check them for their continuity and see if they are good or bad.

Start switch per model  DBSR453EB3WW.

Lid switch per model  DBSR453EB3WW.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs. Please resubmit any further questions or statements.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our
