Question about GE DWSR463EGWW Electric Dryer
Check your sensors on the heater unit, there are two or more, simply us a meter and make sure power is on both sides of the sensor, if not then that specific sensor is bad and you should replace it, pull the sensor and tie the two wire together to see if it will heat, if it does replace the sensor they are cheap and will keep you from burning down the house

The model number listed above appears to be for an electric dryer.
Feel the top of the dryer right next to the backsplash. If this area in the middle gets extremely hot to the touch, then you have a vent problem. Check to make sure that your vent hose is not crimped or blocked in some way. don't use plastic vent hose.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I'll start by saying your post indicates it is obviously a GE gas dryer and you mentioned you do get heat intermittently, and the drum does turn correct ?
If this is a symptom where the unit at first begins to heat but the flame drops out in a matter of seconds or minutes I would be looking at the air flow (which you have done) or burner coils.
Once you've gain access to the coils you'll need to remove the wire harness and check the continuity.
Here's the tricky part though...many times they will ohm out ok when cool (not operating) yet as soon as there is current passing through the coil it "opens". The wire inside the coils is so fine that often it only takes a small current to "open" the circuit, thus after running for a period the valve closes and flame drops out.
Most times it will only be one coil that fails but it is good practice to replace them both, many places used to sell them in a kit so double check with your supplier.
As far as what part you may need and how to get it. There are a couple of places I prefer, on-line at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com".
This kit in the link I've attached it contains both the two wire and three wire solenoids. One solenoid is the primary and one is the safety. Both have to operate for the gas valve to open. Usually, one of them burns out as I said but you should always replace them as a set.
**unplug the appliance and turn off the gas supply before attempting any service...safety first**
The most common is part number 3449 at "repairclinic" as this link should provide you.
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Thank you for your patience while I was away for a while. Good luck.
