Question about GE Dryers
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all or it will stop in mid cycle. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Thanks for using FixYa. If the dryer is hot at the beginning but cold at last then the coils have gone bad. If it doesn’t heat then you’ll need to check the igniter, check the continuity which should be under 100 ohms. If not then igniter has gone bad. If yes, then check the continuity on the flame sensor. If everything above is fine then please check that there is no lint around the burner. Please replace whichever has gone bad. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
