Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. If there is no continuity, the component is faulty. The thermal fuse is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. Hope this helped and best wishes.

GE Dryer DBSR453Eb2WW takes twice as long to dry clothes

A clogged or partially clogged vent will reduce the air flow through the dryer and greatly increase the drying time. I assume you checked the drying time again after you cleaned the vents. Have you also checked that the lint trap is clean? Make sure no lint has found it's way around the lint trap and has jammed the intake.

I would be very suspicious of the 240 v breaker double breaker feeding the dyrer; maybe the dryer is only running on 120 vac instead of the full 240vac. The motor would be getting full power, but the heating element would only be getting half power.
