GE dryer won't stay running
« on: March 20, 2014, 01:02:46 PM »
This is a relatively new dryer and you need to hold the start button down to keep it running. The model number is GTUP270EM1WW. If you buypass the start switch it will run fine.  I have replaced the start switch, control board and the timer and still same problem.  The only thing i haven't replaced is the motor.  Could that be the problem?

yes the motor could be the problem, if the switch on the motor doesn't shift from start to run position it will cause the same symptom your having, try cleaning around switch on motor and manually move switch back and forth.

it sounds like the belt interlock switch is bad. is located next to the motor. thats the symptom of when the switch is bad on ge dryers.

bypass the interlock switch next to the motor and try to run it.

Bad interlock switch on the belt would be best case.  It uses one of those universal Cherry switches.  If it is not that then it will be the centrifugal switch in the motor.
