If the problem with your GE Hotpoint electric or gas dryer is that is not heating, is getting too hot, or is not getting hot enough. The problem could be the operating thermostat.
These thermostats are on and off switches use to control the temperature inside of the dryers drum.
They have a set of contact points inside. When the temperature is below 130 degrees, the contacts are close completing the heating circuit and the dryer gets hot.
And when the temperature inside of the drum reaches above 155 degrees, the contacts separate opening the heating circuit and the dryer stops heating until the temperature falls below 130 degrees.
The thermostat will do this as many times as needed during the complete cycle.
