Why does my GE dryer keep shutting off, and why won't it stay on without me holding it in "start" position?
by MATTHEW TUNGATE Last activity date:
I have a GE DBXR453ET2WW electric dryer. It has been quitting in the middle of a cycle. Often it smells like burning rubber, and sometimes seems to be hotter than I remember it being. But before today, I would just turn it on again and go through this cycle over and over again.
Today the dryer starts but won't stay on. I have had to tape the start switch on to keep it running.
So I have two problems:
1. What do I check/replace to get it to stay on?
2. Why was it shutting down mid-cycle in the first place?
I have cleaned out the venting, so I doubt that is the problem. Any help is appreciated.

Taping down the start switch so you can get the laundry done would be a short time fix. The expert will review this model and respond, but I did locate two similar questions that may help narrow down the cause. I attached the links below. I hope this information helps.
