Be carefull not to overload and inspect around door and heat entrance area for catch points or sharp areas.
Its usually Washers that tear clothes inspect closly to determin cut or tear. if tear try smaller loads with only similar materials

My dryer is getting a hold of articles of clothing right inside of the door (near the light) and when it does it is burning a hole into the clothes. There was a sharp piece of plastic sticking out in this...

Your glides is worn out and probably the bearing too. Easy fix:
themobilian_2346.jpgyour model number is to the right of the screwdriver in the first photo, These GEs use different parts per production run.
If yours is bad as i think it is you gonna have to replace the glides and the bearing they mount to.

Our cloths are snaging between the dryer door and the front wall on the handle side of the door (left side). There so stuck that they rip a hole in them when we free them.

Sounds like you front drum support / bearing is wearing out. When the support wears out, a gap occurs between the drum and drum support, That is where the clothes are getting caught, Does your dryer squeak when running? If so, then replace the front drum support / bearing. Cost about $35 - $40.

Our dryer was making a loud squeaking noise for a while now it is tripping the circuit breaker as soon as it is started what do you think is our problem.

The drum rides on a bearing in the rear which cause the squeal. The squeal eventually cuts into the bearing and the whole drum begins to rub against the heating element. This causes the breaker to trip.

Dryer puts holes in clothes why

very care fully run your fingers along the inside edges of the tumbler both front and back
obviously your searching for something that is cutting your cloths so be care full it will cut you too
with the ge, i would tend to believe that your tumbler might be off or have worn though your front slides, they are made of nylon and fall out of place

check behind the door twords the top

Holes in Clothes

You'll need a drill with a wire brush attachment and take that to the front of the heating element. The heating element gets a lot of crud built up on it and yes it'll put holes on clothes.

I have the same dryer doing the same thing. Open the door and take the two screws out and lift the top. Remove the two screws that hold the front on. Remove the front. On mine both the plastic parts that stay on the front when it is removed are cracked and needing replaced. I found over 20 buttons that the dryer had pulled off clothes stuck in the front door. I'm sure if it will be cost effective to buy both these parts or not.
