GE Electric Dryer won't shut off in auto/high heat mode


I have a GE electric dryer, about 12 years old, and it works in the timer mode (medium heat), but it won't shut off if in the automatic mode (high heat). Can anyone help me on what the problem is and how to fix it? I replaced the timer and it didn't fix the problem.

Thanks for all your help.

Is the timer moving at all?

Do you have the model number of your dryer?

It is most like the operating thermostat that is not working.

Girltech,

In the auto/high heat mode, the timer moves only about 10% of the time. In the timed/med heat mode, it works fine.

Thanks for the info. I will get home and check out the model# and get it posted asap.

If it is the operating thermostat, I just hope I can find my way around the inside of the dryer to replace it.

Thanks again.

There seem to be something wrong with your model number as I can bring a picture up. Can you check it for me?

Does the timer move around to the off position but just not shutting off?

DVLR223ET1WW is the model # and the serial # is SS910903G (I double checked it). The timer knob does not move after I set it (in the high heat/auto mode). It does move in the timed heat (medium mode). Thanks for any help.

You will need to replace the operating thermostat.

It is locate in the blower housing. The temperature rating on the thermostat will be L135-15F.

Here is a great place to get appliance parts.

PROBLEM: Dryer won't stop running.
Description: I have a GE electric dryer. It works in the timer mode (no heat), but it won't shut off if in the automatic/high/medium mode.

Should I get an operating thermostat to try to fix?
Model#DCLR333ET1WW
SERIAL#VT121256G

I went to the below site, but it has two thermostats. I don't know which one to get. Is this hard to replace?
