My Ge dryer model # DSXH43EA0WW manufacture date 2001 runs so hot that you can not touch the top of the dryer, paint actually blistered. Replaced both thermostats the one in the back and the one in the front blower but no change. Took out the heater element and it looks fine and tested with Ohm meter and has continuity. I removed the ground wire and then there is no heat so I am thinking maybe it is a sagging coil that grounds out when heated up. A heating element is too expensive for me at least a OEM GE element # WE14X10015 but I can get a Frigidaire element for $50. Can I go cheap they look identical. My other choice is to try restringing an element, can you suggest a suppler. I have read some horror stories of cheap replacements.
