Question and Answers

Q:

ds4500eb0ww electric dryer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom it could have a broken belt or the belt came off. Your model has a belt switch connected in series between the start switch and the motor for the run voltage circuit. The brown wire on the push to start switch provides the run voltage to the motor but the voltage must pass through the belt switch or the motor will not remain running once the start switch is released. Once the motor starts, the motor centrifugal switch must close M5 to M6 in order to remain running. If voltage is not present at terminal M6 when contact terminal M5 contacts M6, the motor will not remain running. With this said I suspect the belt switch is open due to a broken belt or a loose or broken wire in the circuit I high lighted in the wire diagram I provided in the image below.

You will need to check the belt, belt switch and the circuit I high lighted in red. I also added an image showing how to remove the front panel if your feel confident in repairing the dryer yourself.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .

Q:

GE dryer model DS4500EB0WW making squealing noise.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I suspect it could have a worn drum bearing based on your details. The drum has a shaft protruding out the back of the drum where it rides inside a plastic bearing. The bearing will likely need to be replaced. In order to access the bearing, the front panel  and drum will need to be taken out.  The drum bearing is part # WE1M462. The drum bearing can be ordered from SearsPartsDirect. 

I added an image below with the procedure for removing the drum.

Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Mike: The image I provided in my last replay does not pertain to your model. Your model has a drum bearing sleeve and not the type shown in the image above. Yes, to remove and replace the drum bearing sleeve, the heater housing will need to come off. This plastic bearing installed from the front and not the rear. The drum bearing sleeve is not to be lubricated either. Be sure to check the front bearings and seal where the front of the drum rides on the front bulkhead for any wear too.
