SOURCE: Broken sensor
In a GE dryer the sensor rods are below the front support and air duct assembly it may be that a wire has come loose or broken. The sensor itself may be bad but I would remove the front panel check wires before purchasing the part.

My guess is your PC Board (PCB) is shot and needs to be replaced. From the manual: The PCB measures moisture across the sensing bars on the front duct assemby (it is possible, but unlikely that the sensing bars have lint over them which may be causing a problem). As the clothes slide past the bars the PCB reads the current across the bars. When the clothes are dry the current ceases so the PCB advances the timer. There should be a min of 1 M ohm across the bars when dry. The resistance should be lower when mositure tracks across the bars. To test the bars check the resistance when dry, then wet your finger and place it across the bars and check for resistance. Again...it is very unlikely the bars are the problem. More likely it is the PCB. Part Number WE1M418 for the DE09 (similar to the DE08, but check to make sure with your local appliance parts person). How to replace the PCB: Open the console; unscrew and remove the PCB cover; disconnect the PCB connector; unclip PCB from its holding clips. Reassembly is the reverse procedure. NOTE: The PCB is NOT, repeat NOT, the timer!! It is located on the inside of the console on the left hand side of the instrument cluster

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

my Fisher Paykel auto sensor dryer keeps stopping and beeping, i have to stop it and and re start.
I had the same problem. I took it off the wall and vacuumed up all the lint from everywhere including around the back and including taking off the back and vacuuming everything I could reach inside. I then used a damp cloth to get rid of the rest of the lint/dust.
I thought I was wasting my time but guess what, the problem has gone.

There is no reset circuit.
Parts that must be tested are high limit thermostat and timer board.
The timer board is replaced if it is visibly faulty, or if there is no problem elsewhere.
The high limit located near to the element is tested reading impedance with a multimeter set at Rx1. If there is no continuity , the thermostat must be replaced.
Before testing parts check the lint filter, and ensure that air ducts are clean.
