Ola Guilherme. Nenhum problema.

O meu Portugues es tamben mau.Por isso vou escriver o resto da resposta em Ingles.

There are three common faults that can commonly cause the drying cycle to stop before the cycle has ended.

Defective door switch.
Defective timer.

Defective door switch.
This goes with vibration. The door switch can be tested by running a cycle with its ontacts jumped.
If the cycle does not stop, that was the problem. See: (Door Switch) . The part is n.360 in this diagram.

The high limit thermostat (THERMOSTAT L258-50) will cut off when internal temperature reaches 260 degrees Fahrenheit. It will restart when temperature goes back below 210F. If problem is the cutoff you will have to wait before being able to restart the dryer. The part is n.507 in this diagram.
If there is overheating check lint filter and air ducts. Thermostats and high limit can be tested reading impedance (ohms) at their contacts. A good bi-metal thermostat will read zero Ohms at room temperature and open at stated temperature. The first effect of overheating is element turning off rather than machine immediately stopping.

Defective timer.
The timer is an expensive part (see TIMER ASM).
If the timer itself is bad the machine can stop cycling before time. Since the part is expensive and difficult to test in full, the timer must be replaced only after ensuring that everything else is OK. The timer is part 100 in this diagram.

I have an electric Ge Performance Wizard Dryer and on the button panel to space over the start button is broken.

get it fixed. it might not be a easy job as electronics are a problem if you do something wrong, it would make something else break. OR just deal with it if it works fine, but a button isn't perfect.

My dryer does not work in brazil, was working in usa. why?

In other countries they have different electrical set up than the U.S. Usually thery have a higher power input to the house, for example your dryer was made to handle 220 volts ac 60 Hz I believe and there your made have a setup for 240v ac which would overload the dryers electrical load capability and shut the machine down

Good morning sir, I am ajit. i live in india. i

To think is not to be accounted for as problem, unless you were taught that thinking can cause pain. Go back in your life and find the lie you were told. Then let the fear of the lie pass through you. All will pass then. And, you will feel an emptiness from the loss of your longtime companion, Fear/Loss.

No great life or religion had any beggining without thinking, even when they were trying to say they needed to stop thinking. All geniuses know this, just as you do.
