Learn how your appliance is supposed to operate so you can determine if it is malfunctioning.
The General Electric dryer design has changed very little over the years. One of its best features is a completely porcelain-coated drum. Porcelain tops allowed the dryers to function better as work benches for some top-of-the-line models.
The GE dryer has a drum that is supported by plastic slides on the cabinet front panel and in the rear by a metal center shaft with Teflon or nylon sleeve bearing. The lint filter is conveniently located behind the front door opening.
