If you are using your dryer on a automatic cycle the timer will not turn if the dryer is not heating so your heating element may be bad. GE dryers have two heating elements if one is bad the timer will not turn but you will still feel heat in the tub. Like they said it can be the timer but they don’t go bad often. One way you can check this it to try using a timed cycle if the timer still won’t cut off the timer is bad.
