Question about GE DWSR405EBWW Electric Dryer
My dryer seems to be getting too hot. The back of the machine gets too hot to touch and the clothes that come out of the dryer are EXTREMELY hot. I'm afraid that it is a fire hazard. Any repair or checks that I could do before calling a repairman?
You will want to make sure the lint screen and vent are free and clear.
If the dryer is blowing out the vent outside the house as it should, then you have a thermostat problem.
If the operating thermostat does not open properly then the element will cycle by the hi-limit thermostat which will cause the dryer to heat more than normal.
