Dryer starts then a few minutes later stops and is really hot


I have a GE dryer that starts but then stops a few minutes later and the dryer is really hot. I have cleaned all lint out of the dryer and it still does the same thing. My dryer model number is DBXR463EDWW.

    Yes. When we put clothes in it seems to run fine and the drum turns. Then about 10 minutes later, it shuts off and the top of the dryer is really really hot and the clothes seem to be warm as if it is trying to dry. After the hurricane this year we noticed that the dryer had condensation in it before using the dryer even after a few days of not using it. I thought it was strange but because of the hurricane thought water might have gotten into the hose.

    We do have a heat setting of delicates/low heat, fluff, cottons/regular heat, and easy care medium heat. Where is the thermostat located? Also could it be both the thermostat and the motor? Thank you for all of your help and your quick responses. :)

    How can you get replacement parts? I know GE has a website. Would you get it from them? Thanks again! :)

GE dryer starts up ignitor gets hot you see flames everything is working. 2-3 minutes later the flame goes out. Is this a bad thermostat?

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Have had a repair man out 3 times. Replaced igniter and gas regulator. Dryer will heat for a few minutes then stop heating. When I try to turn it back on, it will not turn on at all for about 10 minutes.

Are you saying the dryer will not start again after a few minutes? That is a motor [problem. Replace motor.
Are you saying dryer starts after a few minutes but will not heat? That is an air flow problem or a gas valve coil problem. Thoroughly clean EVERY single air passage in the dryer and vent tube. If that does not cure it, then replace gas valve coils if the igniter comes on and off.

Dryer smells hot and back panel near heating

your duct is clogged or the limit snapstat is not working. turn dryer on and go outside to the duct vent , their should be a minimum temp of 10 degrees, and a maximum 15 degrees outside. also sometimes just cleaning the lint from inside the dryer, can cause this smell for no more than 5 minutes. thanks karl

Dryer over heating

It sounds like the motor is tripping out on the thermal protector.

I would start by taking the dryer apart and cleaning all of the lint out, Make sure to clean the venting.

while you have it apart look at the seals and see how worn they are.

How old is the dryer? How long is the venting? is the weather hood outside blocked?

Let me know if you have any more questions.
