Question about GE Dryers
After it cools down it will run again untill it gets hot again. It's a DBXR463EG1WW
This is usually caused by a motor getting too hot. The motor has a shutoff to protect it against burnout. It will reset when it gets cool. As the motor overheats more and more these shutoffs become more frequent and longer
Motors get hot for several reasons:
Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screw and raise the top.
Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.
The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the bottom clips and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front.
This will expose the underside of the dryer along with motor and venting for checking and vacuuming. Perform thorough vacuuming and reverse the above process for reassembly.
