There could be 2 problems coming into play here. 
1. Check to make sure there is no blockage in the vent piping. If the vent is blocked and the air cannot discharge from the dryer, the heating element will overheat and the overtemp thermostat will turn the heating element off.  (By the way, Blocked vent is usually the No. 1 Culprit in problems like this.)
2. Check the heating element and make sure that the heating coils are all intact. An open or shorted heating coil will cause the same symptom.

My ge electric dryer will not get hot and is making a noise when it turns GE 3 CYCLE/4 FABRIC SETTING MODEL#DSXH43EA2WW SERIAL#RF706217W


hello febe... you probably have two separate issues here. First of all no heat generally means that your dryer heating element is shot and must be replaced. The squeaking comes from the idler pulley which puts tension on the belt which turns the drum.

To see these parts up close and learn how much the parts would be go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number. Joe
