  • GE dryer

    Model: DBSR463EG6WW
    Comes on by itself when you shut the door.
    No electronic board just a timer. Have to open door to get it to stop or, I guess, turn it to an Off position on the timer.
    Bad timer? On/Off switch? Lid switch by any chance?
    It supposedly stops at end of cycles.

    Hey Rick,

    Comes on by itself when you shut the door
    Timer must be set in a cycle and not the off position?

    Have to open door to get it to stop or, I guess, turn it to an Off position on the timer.
    You haven't tried turning the timer to off to see what happens?!?

    It supposedly stops at end of cycles.
    Sounds like the turn/push to start switch is welded closed.

      I have not tried it in the off position. I had removed the cord and was taking it and the washer back to the seller when I decided to keep them and try to repair them.
      I had wondered about contacts in the timer being welded together.
      I will check that out today.
      Thanks.

        Welded closed contacts in the timer *should* keep the dryer running in the off position....but normally *shouldn't* allow the dryer to turn on...on it's own.

          I think I changed the in/off switch and solved the problem.
