Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
My GE Dryer will start and heat up, but shuts off after 10-20 minutes.
The dryer cannot be restarted for a few minutes and is very hot.
We started having this problem a few years ago, however, once I opened it and found the dryer door felt tangled up. I replaced it and didn't have the problem again....until now.
I replaced the felt (for a second time), but now it didn't help.
The vents are clear, the drum is moving, but the drier is hot to the touch.
Is this a thermostat problem? Suggestions?

No its not hard, just unplug first and then just take the front off and take note where the wires go to the door switch.,also check your drum to make sure you did not damage.

Squeaking is cause by the drum bearing worn out and telling the tale. As it get thinner and thinner it begins to rub against the metal outer casing it is embellished in. To inspect it you must rmove tyhe front and get the drum out. Start by opening the the door and removing the screws holding down the top. Then raise the top and get the screws out thathold the front on. Use the rear acces panel(if applicable) to get the idler loose or access that idler from the front.
