Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer no longer produces heat - how do I determine which part is defective? DSXH47EG0WW Ge Electric dryer

A:

Good morning.... I can understand you're being puzzled over your dryer's performance. Have you tried cutting power to the unit for 10 minutes. This will reboot the system. I've located a link that will discuss the concept of rebooting in more detail. He also provides some testing you can perform to determine what part might have failed. Review his report and be aware that an expert will be responding within the next couple of days if not much sooner. I hope this link helps to resolve your heating problem and have a nice day.

The dryer will run if it has 120 volts supplied to it. It will not heat if the 2nd 120 volt leg of 240 volt power is missing. I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers or fuses first. If you find no problems with the house circuit breakers, then I recommend that you carefully check the voltage at the dryer electrical outlet as shown in this brief video: Video: Perform a Voltage Check on a 240 Volt Outlet .

This dryer has an electronic control. The first 2 images show some technical information for the dryer. I recommend that you check for a saved fault code as shown in that first image. You can use the Function Test Sequence shown in the 2nd image to check the thermistor (temperature sensor) and other major components in the dryer. The third image shows the wiring diagram for the dryer. The L1 leg of power is traced in red and the L2 leg is traced in yellow. You could have a bad high limit thermostat, a bad heating element or a defective electronic control board in the console. You can unplug the dryer and check the continuity through the high limit thermostat. Remove the top panel as shown in the 4th image to access that component. Measure the resistance through the high limit thermostat using a volt/ohm meter. It should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If that high limit thermostat measures OL -- open load or infinite resistance then it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from this page: GE Dryer Model DSXH47EG0WW Parts . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

The other images shown below describe how to access the other components in the dryer. If that high limit thermostat is okay, then you may need to check the continuity through the heating element.

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

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

Lyle, thank you for posting the wiring diagram and images. I had a similar problem, intermittently the dryer would heat, or beep randomly with no pattern when not being used. All the diagnostics showed everything was ok. The beep code was not on the code sheet - an E9E. I took the control board out, unsoldered the piezo beeper (what a relief), looked the board over and didn't see any flaws. Put it back together, it worked once, then back to its old ways. Took it apart again, this time noticed the RL2 heater relay was loose on the circuit board. Looks like a poor design - the red and black wire terminals are very hard to pull off/push onto the terminals on the relay, and the relay is only soldered onto the circuit board. I used some RTV to glue it to the circuit board, resoldered it, plugged it back in, ran three loads through the dryer and it worked flawlessly. Hooray! Hope this helps someone else...

Thanks for posting the details of that fix. That can help others who face the same problem and are confident that they can resolder those connections.

I get the E9E error (a whole row of flashing lights) on this GE model because the plug tines (those big brass blades) need to be cleaned with steel wool or sandpaper to improve the contact. I know this sounds crazy, but it happens ever year or two and cleaning the tines solves the problem for another year or two. E5B/E9E is a "low voltage" error. I knew that made no sense, but it lead me to suspect the contact. Perhaps the voltage sensor is overly sensitive; perhaps my humid climate causes a bit of surface corrosion; I don't know. But I sure do hope this simple solution saves someone else a whole lot of trouble or expense. Just try it and then write it in your manual so you know again two years from now.

Q:

Why does dryer beep constantly when not on?

A:

I know how concerning it is when your dryer displays an error code. Especially when you have no idea what has failed on your appliance. An expert will be able to respond to your question with a detailed response. It usually takes 24-48 hours to receive a response. Have a good day.

Thank you for submitting your question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it is when appliances are beeping and you're not even using them. I'd like you to try the error code testing again to see if we can get a different result. I've provided the testing sheet below in image one. This will give you more insight on how to calculate the error codes on your dryer. The second image is the actual error code sheet. If you still end up getting the same codes, then the control board could be failing and may need replacement. If you'd like to schedule for service you can do so through Sears Home Services . If you feel confident in repairing the unit yourself and would like to know how, please reply back to this thread. I hope this helps. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

This is what I did: Use the select button to turn the light on "signal" and "extended cool down" off. Then I pushed both the option and select buttons simultaneously to lock in a no signal status. If I wanted signal back, I would have to do another simultaneous button push to unlock.
