My ge dryer will not keep running. I replaced the broken belt, as well as the belt switch successfully I believe. For some unknown reason to me the dryer will not stay engaged when I take my hand off the start button. The drum moves and I can feel heat immediately upon pressing the start button, but Again it will not sustain. What other areas specific places can I check to fix this issue?

If the model number of the dryer could be provided, this will allow the most accurate information to be presented. Generally speaking, this would commonly be a failure in the start switch or the motor.

**My ge dryer will not keep running.**

The dryer shuts off when you let go of the start switch?

** I replaced the broken belt, as well as the belt switch successfully I believe.**

For this problem?...or for a different problem?
This started right after you replaced the belt and belt broken switch?

-If- this started after your repair, the broken belt switch, broken belt switch arm, broken belt switch bracket would be the prime suspects.

Make sure the broken belt switch arm is in the correct position and moving the idler arm makes the switch "click".
Sometimes something gets bent a little during a repair and the dryer thinks the belt is broken and will not allow the dryer to continue running.

I hope something here helps :)

Thank you for suggestions. The belt switch arm was not getting a proper connection to the belt switch and not clicking, therefore the dryer wouldn’t stay on once the start button was released. A minor adjustment of the switch corrected it, and now it works correctly. Thank you for insight.
