Question and Answers

Q:

DWSR483EG8WW, timer does not advance on auto dry DWSR483EG8WW Ge Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Ge Dryer, Model: DWSR483EG8WW. From reviewing the details on your model, if the dryer heats and advances in the Timed Dry cycle then I suspect the problem with the timer not advancing in the automatic cycle is a bad resistor. When the dryer is heating the resistor prevents any voltage from reaching the timer. When the element shuts off then the resistor allows voltage to the timer. The resistor is located near the timer. The element might be the problem is the dryer doesn't heat at all. 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the dryer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

I had already checked the resistor. Could it be the thermostat. I really do not want to take the dryer apart, but I will.

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model DWSR483EG8WW; it sounds like the timer may need to be replaced. The timer controls the cycles and their duration so when it fails it can cause the dryer to stay stuck on certain point of the cycles. I have posted a link of the timer to view the link click here.

Thanks for your help. I assumed that since the timer was moving in the timed cycle that it was alright. I have also noticed that the start switch is stuck in the start position. Could that cause the problem?
