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 Spacemaker Dryer Model WSM 2700 DA no longer heats up. HOw difficult is it to change the heater element or is that the problem? P.S. I have cleaned all the vents out with very little material found.


either the heating element, hi-limit switch, thermal fuse (on some), cycling switch,or a burned neutral power wire in the unit, first, make sure you have 240 volts input power
