Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
You could have several problems.
You could have a vent problem. usually when this occurs, the top of the dryer closest to the backsplash is extremely hot to the touch. check outside to make sure that your vent does not have an obstruction. also check behind the dryer to make sure the flex hose has not crimped or collapsed.
if everything is clear and clean with the vent and you still don't get much air flow out of the vent - your fan on the inside of the dryer could be blocked or bad. usually when the fan is bad you may hear somewhat of a growling sound near the front
if all this looks good then you probably have a bad heating element. if the dryer is heating some, you could have one of the two elements bad. replace both of them even if only one has failed. they make a re-string kit for these elements.
if the dryer is not heating at all then first check to make sure that you have 220volts coming to the dryer. your house breaker to the dryer could be half thrown allowing only 110vols to the dryer. this would let it run and not heat.
