Mailbag: GE dryer stopped working and now won’t turn on

My dryer stopped working. Will not turn on. I think it over heated and need to know which thermostat to replace on it. It’s a GE DHDSR46EG2WW

Start at the thermal fuse mounted on the heater pan under the hood. If it tests open with an ohm meter, you need to replace it. Buy the replacement here:

If you need help getting inside your dryer, testing the thermal fuse and installing the new one, go to the Samurai School of Appliantology at and start a new topic in the Laundry Forum. We’re here to help!
