Question about GE Dryers
Dryer gets extremely hot on top and sides, gets even hotter when it is turned off
Heating element coil has shorted to the metal housing. This is usually caused by items like nails or other metallic objects (left in pockets) falling into the heater assembly. There should not be any continuity between the heater leads and the housing. Unplug and do not use until issue with heater has been resolved

Tips for a great answer:
Good afternoon friend, thanks for the post!
I see from your post that your Frigidaire dryer is getting extremely hot on the top and back. Have you checked to make sure that it is getting proper ventilation? I would verify nothing is blocking your dryer from ventilating which could be causing the appliance to heat up. If it continues to heat up I would reach out to a technician to come diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
