Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
I started my dryer this morning and within one minutes time it shut off. I tried to start it again but it seemed there was no power. I tried turning the breaker on and off but it still would not turn on. I waited about 20 mins and tried again and the same thing happened again. It started but turned right off. I waited another 20 mins and tried again and now it seems to be working fine. It has been running for about 5 mins now. Any suggestions?
This type problem usually shows it mean head when your motor is going bad. The motor will run for just a moment then it gets really hot and shuts off till cool. I bet when you start the dryer you hear a unusuall humm as the motor starts. If you are not hearing a hestating humm as it starts then the problem may be elsewhere. Other possible problems that casue this would be. the tub rollers. To check the rollers reach inside and try to turn the tub with your hand. you should be able to turn the tub. if not you may need new rollers, or pads. Good luck and I hope its not a bad motor, but if it is let me know and I can have you one there in no time.

Tips for a great answer:
Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer, LEQ1442ES1, will run and then shut down after three or four minutes. I would recommend a reset on your dryer which you can do by unplugging your power cord for roughly ten minutes.
If that does not correct the issue it sounds like a potential problem with your control panel or a sensor. I would suggest having a professional come out and repair your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
