Stackable Washer-dryer...dryer isnt working

Hello,
I have a GE stackable washer - dryer... for 3 weeks, the dryer stopped working, making a loud noise. i couldnt even press the button for it to work. Now the button does work, yet it makes a loud noise. I had a neighbor whos a handyman check to see if the belt broke, but he said it was fine....Any ideas....I just cant afford to bring someone in to check it out for 100.00 dollars and then a repair charge... I am very handy myself..and hoping its something simple enough that i can do ...Please help me out.
thanks

Hi,

Thank you for your question and for letting me assist you with your repair.

With the unit making noise and not turning on I would advise checking the safety thermostat, the start switch and the door switch. If the unit makes noise I would say check the same things as above.



Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts

NOTE: You should only check live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking live voltage.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this entry below.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
