Front load dryer starts up and then stops a few seconds later.  The drum spins and the blower starts, but then it shuts down.

I am looking for any help to troubleshoot this.  I'm unable to find a service manual or the information on how to get into the test mode.  If anyone can point me in the right direction on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Model DPVH880GJ0WW

It could be a motor, board or who anything.It has some very costly part in it.Try unplugging it for a couple minutes.Do you smell anything burning?Sometimes this stuff is so costly to fix it does not pay.G.E does not bring get things to life.

No burning and I tried unplugging it for a while and it still does the same thing.

I also don't get any error codes that I can see... it just stops.

I haven't been able to get into the test mode.  The model listed in the manual that jumptrout51 posted is slightly different.  My controls are different and I don't have a signal button to press.

Can you find a service diagram on the dryer it must be there somewhere.There is a thermistor on blower outlet.G.E.Part # WE4m448
You could have a thermistor out of its Ohm value.I would try to find diagram in dryerThis would  tell you what the ohms would be.This part is  not that costly.If you look at some of the part prices you can see this dryer has some high part prices like i said before.
