Question about GE DBXR463EDWW Electric Dryer

Open Question

My Ge electric dryer, model dbxr463egww, will turn on and run for about 10 minutes and then kick off. We can immediately restart it, and it will run for another 10 minutes. Doesn't matter which heat setting or timing option we select. Already tried cleaning it out with a shop vac no success. Any suggestions? My husband thinks it is the cyling thermostat??

On all the ones I've seen with this problem, they've needed a new blower motor. Don't take that as the golden answer because even G.E. tech support doesn't know. It could be the control board, but I haven't seen that yet. G.E. always recommends replacing the inlet thermister, which is accessed through a little cover on the back. Good luck & welcome to the wonderful world of complex electronic appliances.

SOURCE: GE Profile Dryer - sensor problem

When I pull up the exploded view of your model, it does not show an individual moisture sensor, but is does show disconnect plug(s) for it. I can only assume that the sensor bars are an intrical part of one of the front bulkhead components. That all being said, the most common reason for your symptoms is when people use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, the sheets leave a waxy type coating on the silver sensor bars inside the drum, near the air inlet to the lint filter. If you clean those two (usually about 4 inch long x about 1/4 inch wide) metal bars off, they will be able to detect the moisture level of the clothing again, and your dryer will work on auto dry again.

Open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Then raise the top and you can get to the screws holding the front on. Get the front out and then the drum can come out so you can clean that guy out and replace that belt. How about some repair PHOTOS?

Sounds like a safety or limit switch cutting it out, if you wait 2 minutes and it restarts then repeats.

Dryer starts but will not continue to run

Check two things:
The area under the drier, the front panel there comes off.
1.There is a problem with lint, dust etc in the intake or a bad thermostat.
2. The door switch is bad or loose or the door is not staying tightly closed.

GE Dryer model DDE5700GCLAD

Your dryer is exhibiting symptoms of a restricted/plugged exhaust vent. Remove the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and inspect it for restrictions all the way to the outside vent hood,(including the vent hood), i.e., lint build up/water retention, pinched-off, too long, animal nest, etc. Also make sure your lint filter is being cleaned after each load.
A blower malfunction could also cause your symptom. Do not overload the dryer as this also can restrict air flow.
Most dryers can only be vented 10 to15 ft. and should be cleaned twice a year.
Always utilize the shortest distance/shortest vent concept.
