GE electric dryer

I have a 10 year old GE 5 cycle Automatic Dryer. My problem is it run for about 5 minutes then shuts off. It overheats...what are my options...should a dryer last for more than 10 years....Thanks

They Give The Life Of A Dryer 10 - 12 Yrs ... Sounds Like A Motor Problem.... Was Your Clothes Starting To Take Longer To Dry Before This Happened... If So, Motor Probably Got Clogged With Lint Which is caused by A Blocked Vent... Good Idea To Clean Out Before Installing a New Motor Or Getting A New Dryer....
