Question about GE DBXR463EDWW Electric Dryer
First thing, make sure all lint is cleared out of all exhaust: tubing, (flexible, and/or hard) including exhaust area on the back of the dryer itself and the lint trap. The automatic overload is tripping and resetting itself. Which is causing the heating element to "half cycle".

GE dryers usually have more than one heating element. Your machine probably has one failed heater and one good heater. The dryer will not get hot enough with only one heater working.
Unplug the machine! Check the heaters for continuity with a multimeter and replace if no continuity.
If the heaters are good, a faulty operating thermostat can also cause this symptom. It can turn the heaters off before the machine reaches the normal operating temperature.
Poor air flow can also contribute to slow drying. Check for lint buildup blocking airflow inside the machine and the vent duct.
