Question about Dryers
there is a centrifugal switch on the dryer motor. pressing start energizes the start winding and the motor runs. when the motor is up to proper rpm the start switch is supposed to kick out and the motor runs on its run winding.

SOURCE: GE dryer starts but..... stops
What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor
How old is this dryer?

Hi, Check all the thernostats and the thermal fuse for continuity. They should all show a closed circuit. If any of them are open, it will need replaced. It is usuallly the thermostat on the top side of the element housing.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
