Question and Answers


my ge dryer has a red lock picture illuminated on screen and a "clean lint filter" on. It won't start. model number dbvh520ej2ww


Thank you for contacting with your question about your GE Dryer. I am so sorry it will not start. I will be happy to help you with this. I have included the link for you to view the owner's manual online in case you don't have a copy. 
The red lock picture indicates that the control panel is locked. This means that no selections can be made. Press and hold the icon for three seconds to unlock the control panel.  
The "Clean Lint Filter" message is just a reminder. After the POWER button is pressed, the message may appear if the previous cycle was not finished. It will disappear again after the START button is pressed. Even if you have already cleaned the filter (before or after the POWER button has been pressed), the "Clean Lint Filter" will still be displayed until the START button is activated. 
I hope this answers your questions. If you need further assistance, please resubmit your question with additional details. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

You indicate that you hear a hum when you start the dryer. If you are hearing the motor trying to run and detect excessive resistance when turning that drum by hand, then you could have a problem with the bearings or the felt glides in the drive system.  You can unplug the dryer and open the cabinet as shown in the images below to check the drive system components.


This dryer appears to have a belt switch that will stop the motor if that drive belt is broken or is off of the motor pulley. Your exact version may not have that switch. If the hum that you are hearing is the drive motor running, then you could have a broken drive belt. You can unplug the dryer and remove the top panel to check the belt on the drum.


If you find the cause of your problem and need parts, you can order them from this page: GE Dryer Model DBVH520EJ2WW Repair Parts.  Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.


I hope that this information helps. If you need further assistance, reply with additional details.


If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the dryer, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair.
