Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my GE dryer model DDE7200SBLWW heat properly?

A:

I recommend checking the house breakers (or fuses) for the dryer outlet. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, the dryer will not heat.

If the breakers (or fuses) are okay, then I recommend checking the voltage at the dryer outlet using the diagram in the first image below. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it.

If the outlet voltage is okay, then you could have a number of different failures causing this problem. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the second image below. Your heating problem could be caused by:

  • A failed timer contact
  • A wiring failure between components in the heating circuit
  • An open thermostat (there are several in this circuit)
  • Failed temperature switch
  • Failed heating element
With the multiple possibilities of causes for this problem, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your heating failure.

If you are able to properly read the wiring diagram below, you may be able to unplug the dryer and check continuity through the thermostats and switches. You should only perform these types of checks if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely perform the tests.
