    Default DBXR463GG1WW Dryer Cycle not advancing

    Model Number: DBXR463GG1WW
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hey everyone. just noticed that the dryer cycle never advances from the "more dry" section of the cycle. It'll run for hours. needs to be manual stopped. Assuming that switch is bad?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Joe,

    If you use TIMED DRY does the timer advance?

    If it still doesn't, then your timer has gone bad.

    Here's the timer for your model:
    WE04X20415 Timer

    Hi Jake. Thanks for the info. I tried all cycles and none advance. I'll be ordering this part. Thanks for pointing me to it.

    Yuppers Joe, that indicates your timer is the problem child.

    Let us know how it goes when you get the new timer installed.

    Hey Jake, I have a question for you. I got the new timer in place but am having a hard time getting the wires off the old one. Can I use WD40 to loosen them?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Excellent Joe, good job.

    The 1st photo was too blurry, I couldn't see it clearly.
