Q:

What is causing my GE dryer to squeak as it's running?

A:

The squeaking noise is most likely emitting from the drum bearing (key#543). In order to access and replace the drum bearing will require removing the drum. The drum bearing/sleeve is part# WE1M462. I added the instructions on how to remove the drum in the images below. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing the dryer.

Q:

my dryer heater element does not turn off

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, I suspect one of two failures, the heating element coil could be sagging or broken and part of the heating element coil is shorted to the heater housing or the motor centrifugal switch contacts 1M and 2M are stuck/welded closed.

I would first check the heater assembly to see if one of the two heater elements is shorted to the heater housing. If the heater elements are not sagging and touching the heater housing, I suspect the motor centrifugal switch contacts 1M and 2M are stuck or welded shut.

In order to access and inspect the heater elements, the top must be hinged opened, the front panel must be taken off and dryer drum removed.

I added a couple of images below to with the procedure of removing the drum. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.
