Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
The most common cause of heater failure is the thermal cutout/thermal fuse/temperature cutout(any of a dozen names for the same thing from different manufacturers) a device on the exhaust ducting near the fan housing. on over temperature, when the air temperature is hotter than the normal range set by the thermostats, these units melt out,
they are not resettable, they are replaced, ~$8 each, except where manufacturers are gouging
they look usually like this or this conduction good, open circuit fail
common to many dryer models the local parts guy will have them to suit, even if they are labelled with a different make or model
