Customer Question
I have a GE dryer...
I have a GE dryer that takes a couple of hours to dry a load of laundry. The vent is clear and no kinks. It seems to put out pretty good heat. It keeps running even after clothes are dry on auto dry cycle.

It's a rental house and it's about a twenty minute drive to get there. I did feel the heat coming out of the vent outside when I was there and it was pretty warm, about what I would normally expect. I thought I had fixed the problem by shortening the vent so it wouldn't kink.

This is the element its a double coil and if one burns out it will only give you half the heat, buy one and take it with you when you go it should fix the problem.

Will replacing the element solve the problem of the dryer not shutting off when selecting auto dry?
Appliance Technician: John, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
Yes it will the timer wont move on the auto dry because the heat isn't hot enough to close the thermostat and advance the timer.
