Re: GE 5 cycle automatic heavy duty dryer
Turn off the electricity to the dryer.Try spraying the belt with automotive belt dressing inside that goes around the bucket.. If that does not work it is probably the bushing at the back of the dryer. you will have to remove the bucket to grease the bushing.if it is still good. judging by your details it seems good.But it could be dry.Needs lubrication.

Hi Oxley St
BE SURE TO UNPLUG YOU MACHINE FROM THE WALL BEFORE YOU START ANY WORK.
Your problem sounds like it is a Thermostats/Thermistors malfunction. This will cause an overheat condition that you describe. You will have to locate the air tube that is going to the dryer drum. Some general area the heater is located. Is also where you will find most of them. They normally are round/oval shaped and have two wires connected to them. Take off the wires and with an Ohm meter set to "continuity" check your thermostat/thermistor. If you have continuity across the terminal it is not faulty. Be sure to check all of them. If this is not your problem then it will be the Control board if you have one on your machine.

All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix: Paw Paws GE dryer repair page
there is a metal panel on the back that bolts on remove it then you will see a metal tube and it will have wires to it and a place to remove 2 or 4 screws to remove the area with the wires these wires attach to heating elements its easy to spot once back is off
