Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

I have a dryer, Model # DSXR463 that shuts down after operating for about 10 minute. After a few minutes of cool down, the dryer re-starts after pulsing the start switch. The timer mechanism does rotate. Sometimes it will coninue running until completing the cycle, but sometimes it has to be restarted more than twice. I would like to get a copy of an electrical schematic so i could better troubleshoot this problem, since i am a technician by trade. Or can you tell me what part needs replacing?

I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

Dryer runs for 10 mins and shuts off.


Your dryer motor has a thermal overload built in to it. If your symptom is shutting down allow to cool and it works again for a few minutes the shuts down again.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle


Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Sounds like the motor may be getting hot and kicking out on the motor overload switch. When it cools down it will reset.

Dryer shuts off after 15 minutes and needs to cool down then will start again and the cylec continues!!On, off,on, off.


The problem is more likely a high temp limit switch. I don't have a schematic of your dryer, but one should be included somewhere on the dryer. You have to use a voltmeter to test the components in the circuit. The thermostat controls the heat temp, you may want to start there
