Dryer wont turn on

try to spin the inner drum. You could have a broken belt. if it spins really easy, that's probably what it is. There should be some resistance when you turn it.

My dryer is not drying my clothes completely. I have to set it to time dry for at least 120 minutes to get a load of clothes to dry. I can feel that the dry is warm .I usually dry my clothes on optimum dry...

Your dryer has a double set of heating elements
1 side of the coils is probably broken and you are getting half the heat.
This is making the dryer take longer to dry them clothes.
Air restrictions in the dryer and vent can cause the heater control to shut down quickly also.
If you have a bad breaker the power will sometimes work and sometimes not.
If all of these are good you might have a problem with the timer.
Most of the GE timers have leaf switches in the that get a burr on the contacts. The come apart simple enough.

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?

I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.
