Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
The dryer turns off after running around 5- 10 minutes. There is heat but just shuts off. Let sit for a few minutes and restart it, and it runs fine for about 5-10 minutes.

remove the vent on the dryer that goes to the outside start the dryer if it continues to ru n and not cut off you have a venting problem of the house
if it cuts off after 5 mins with the vent off you have a motor that is going bad

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru www.appliancepartspros.com. Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.
Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at Sears.com.
Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.
