Question and Answers

Q:

I have a GE Profile Prodigy dryer that I just resently bought used and it will not dry the clothes on the first try you have to run the cycle again, help??

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The symptom you describe is usually caused by a restriction in the vent system. For testing purposes only; disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and then dry a normal load. If the clothes dry in a normal amount of time then this test would confirm a restriction or plugged vent system. Check and clean the venting system.

If it continues to take too long to dry with the vent hose disconnected then one of the two heating coils has likely failed or one of the thermostats. The heating element is located directly behind the dryer drum. The drum must be removed to access the heating element. I added a couple of images below. One shows the heating element assembly and the other has the basic instructions for removing the drum. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
