I have a GE DBXR463GD1WW that is about 4-1/2 years old. I have never had a problem until now. When the dryer first starts up it gets hot for about 2-4 minutes. After that it cools down and does not heat up again unless you restart it. Any ideas or help will be much appreciated!!

The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/7-3-850356-/GE-Dryer-won-t-stop-DWSR463EG7WW

The igniter heats the thermocouple which, in turn, opens the gas valve. The igniter could be on its way to failure because it is not staying energized long enough to heat the thermocouple. The thermocouple could be defective as well.
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.

Hello, I'm going to assume this is a Electric dryer since you did not mention :) Ok your problem is with your heating coil. Basically what has happend is the coil has broken and the end that is wired strait to the electric supply is touching the chassis of where the heater is located, You should replace the heating coil and this will solve your problem :) You have a nice day and if there is anything else i can help you with please feel free to comment again. Thanks for using Fixya!! Mike
