Q:

need help finding start/stop switch for ge profile dryer dpse810eg7wt

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with the GE DPSE810EG7WT Dryer.  On this particular dryer the start switch is part of the Electronic Control Board. The control is expensive so you will want to use a meter to check the motor relay, belt switch and door switch. A belt switch and door switch  failure would also prevent the motor from running.  Replacing the dryer might be a better option than replacing the control board.  The images below may be helpful to you.   I hope this information is helpful to you.  You can have the problem repaired in you home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair

Q:

ge dryer DPSE810EG7WT

A:

Thank you for choosing searspartsdirect.com.

There could be a few reasons why your dryer will not work. One problem could be that it came unplugged, so make sure the dryer is plugged in. The next thing to check would be to make sure a fuse hasn't blown or circuit breaker is tripped. Check the fuses and replace them if need be.

If you continue to have the same problem after you check these then we will move onto the next step.

I hope this information helps you.

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your GE Dryer. I am so sorry to hear it doesn’t come on. I know what a convenience the dryer is and how quickly laundry builds up when it isn’t working. I will be happy to help you with this.  Before you begin replacing parts on it, I recommend we check some basics that could be keeping the dryer from running. Check the circuit breaker box to the house. The breaker may need to be reset or a fuse may need to be replaced. Please note that most electric dryers have two breakers in the box. One of them is for power, the other is for heat. If the breakers are not marked (mine where not), you may need to test each breaker to identify what it controls. If you need to test them, I strongly recommend labeling them as you go to make this easier the next time you need to reset a breaker. If the breakers are fine, then I recommend testing the safety devices in the dryer next. These are smaller, less expensive parts that can prevent the dryer from working when they fail. I have included the link for you to view the parts diagrams online so you can see the parts I will be referencing.  Parts Diagrams for GE Dryer Model DPSE810EG7WT. SAFETY WARNING: Disconnect the power supply to the dryer before beginning your repair to prevent risk of injury by electrical shock. You can do that by unplugging the power cord from the outlet or by shutting off the power at the breaker.  

CAUTION: Internal parts of the dryer may have sharp edges that can cause serious cuts. Use care and wear heavy gloves if possible.

 

I recommend you start with the door switch. It is key 380 on the Front Panel & Door diagram. It is a safety device that keeps the dryer from running when the door is open. There is a prong that sticks out of the front of it. When the door presses against the prong and pushes it in, the switch is activated. Try pushing the prong in and see if it pops back out when you release it. If the prong sticks, the switch should be replaced. If the prong is fine, then you can test switch for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove the switch to do that. It is held in place by tabs, so you should be able to remove it by sliding a flat blade screwdriver under the edges of it. (You may want to tape the end of the blade to prevent scratching the paint on the dryer.) With the probes from the meter touching the terminals of the switch, you should get a reading of infinity. Next push the prong of the switch in and you should get a reading of zero. Releasing the prong should change the reading back to infinity. Otherwise, the door switch needs to be replaced. I have included that link for you.  Door Switch for GE Dryer Model DPSE810EG7WT. There are also thermistors and thermostats in the dryer that tell the control board when to start and stop the dryer. The thermistors are keys 240 on the Backsplash, Blower & Motor Assembly diagram and key 506 on the Drum diagram. The thermostats are keys 230 and 2222 on the Backsplash, Blower & Motor Assembly diagram and keys 505 and 507 on the Drum Diagram. If you need the steps to test them, respond to this thread and I will get them for you.  If one of the safety devices has failed, I recommend checking the exhaust venting of the dryer for a lint blockage. When the air flow is restricted, the dryer will overheat and trip a safety device to keep it from catching fire. Once you have replaced the failed part, you need to clear the blockage to be sure the part doesn’t get tripped again. If all the safety features are working correctly, then it would be time to look at the control board.  If you are not comfortable completing this repair yourself, you can have a Sears technician complete the repair for you. To set up service please go to www.SearsHomeServices.com or call 1-800-469-4663. I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

we have checked all the stuff u mentioned except the door piece. The little button u hit to turn it on was shoved in a little and we thought that may be the problem so husband took off top part of dryer and shoved it back out and put it back together. It still wont work. But sometimes if u just go in and hit the button four or five times it will decide to turn on. I just need to get it figured out. Hubby is working this week but we need to get it fixed soon

Thank you for the quick response. It definitely sounds like you have identified the problem. If hitting the button several times eventually gets the dryer to work, you either have a loose electrical connection, a faulty wire, or the switch itself needs to be replaced. While you have the dryer open, I recommend you check all the wire connections to make sure they are securely fastened. Look for any frayed wires or any scorch marks on them. This is also an opportune time to clean out any lint build up in the cabinet and the vents.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with. Thank you again for choosing our SearsPartsDirect.com service.

Thank you for your quick reply Janet. I apologize, I misunderstood what you meant by the button. I thought you were referring to the button on the door switch. If the starter button is sticking, check to see if there is any damage to the button. If so, replace the button. If the button is fine, then the next step would be to replace that circuit board. The switch the button activate is part of the board and cannot be purchased separately. I have included both links for you.
