Hi, I have a GE Model GTDP300EM1WS electric dryer. It completely stops during a cycle. At first, I thought it was an air flow issue, so I cleaned the everything out (even took it apart and vacuumed it). I also, shorted the exhaust hose that connects to wall so there’s less bends to help with airflow. This worked at first, but now the issue is back and I double-checked for airflow issues. Basically, it will stop about mid-way through a cycle. If I let it rest for about 1-2 minutes, it will start back up. Sometimes it will finish, but often times it will have to restarted yet again in order to dry the clothes. Everything else works fine.Any ideas on what this could be?
