My GE dryer DHDSR46EG 1WW less than 2 year-old dryer flips the breaker after about 10 minutes of drying

If the dryer appears to be running OK before the breaker trips, I might consider checking the breaker. Over time they can get weak and not hold the current rating.
If the dryer is smelling "hot" then we can look a little further.
Let me know.

Not drying adequately

There are only one element in the system. if your system is not drying the clothes properly then you should really check the temp sensor to make sure that the system is working correctly and not shutting off at the wrong time or to early and not really heating up properly

Kenmore Heating Element

There are levels of heat according to cycle and some driers do not use all the coils during low heat cycles. They rarely need replace unless visably broken. There could be a loose connection.

How do I test for bad thermastat or heating element on GE dryer

well the fact that hte heating elemnt is glowing tells me that all the thermstats are working, i would check for a blockage/restriction in the venting. looking at te diag, its possible that only 1 of the 2 coils for the heate are actually going on, check the coils for continuity( may be a small break that separates when gets hot)

Either one of 2 ways to get to the thermostat on a GE dryer.....

depending on your model, you will have an access point on the back of the dryer to get to the heating element which has attached to it, the thermostat.

If there isn't an access point on the rear of the unit, open the front door of the dryer and remove the 2 screws in the top of the door opening. Using a small prybar, slightly apply pressure prying up the lid. On the inside of the face of the dryer in the corners will be 2 more screws, remove those and pull the face of the dryer outwards to you to about a 45 degree angle. From there, you will be able to lift off the face. Be cautious to unplug the wires for the door switch before pulling the face all the way out. There isn't much to a 10 yr old dryer, just take your time, study the parts and put it back just as you took it apart. For the replacement thermostat or heating element look at

Good luck and let me know if there is any more trouble I can help with.

Sounds like an intermittant break in the heat element. Could also be an irratic control thermostat or bad connection somewhere between the line and the heater. Simple to isolate with a tester.
