Inglis Gas Dryer... mercy me?


Sounds like what you said. Time for a motor. The motor has an internal overload and will shut the machine off if the motor runs hot.
Good Luck

The dryer will start and then shut off apparently randomly and need to be restarted


Most likely it's the door switch. Start it then pull around the edge of the door and see if it stops. A plastic or metal tab may need to be bent back into shape or the switch is coming loose behind the door panel.

An ring fell out of jacket pocket while jacket drying, can see ring when pull out lint catcher. ring located in "dryer pipe" opening next to a rubber gasket in the front of the dryer unit. How...


You will need to remove the hinges, they lift up and out once screws are removed, the the two white plastic pieces with the screws these are for door reversal, then the front panel lifts off. Good Luck Tim

Seems to be ppower, cheched fuses where the box


this is most likely caused by the door switch. if the door is not closed, the dryer will not turn on, period. you will have to try to jump over the 'possibly bad' switch. first, shut off the breaker. second, wrap a putty knife with masking tape to prevent scratching up the dryer. then, use it to pop open the plastic catch on each front corner. take your time and look inside the small gap with a flashlight to help figure it out. after you have the top of the dryer safely tilted back, look for 2 wires running to the door. they will plug into a switch that is flipped when you close the door completely. you know what i mean, it probably used to click when you shut the door. unplug these wires from either side of the switch. use a piece of wire to connect them or just tape the metal ends together. this will bypass the door switch. make sure all metal parts of the wires are covered to prevent a short on the metal walls. be sure the now loose wires will not get caught on anything, like a rotating drum. close the lid most of the way. turn on the breaker and try to operate the dryer. if it now works, replace the door switch. be careful, opening the door will not shut off the dryer now. good luck

Suddenly stopped working will not start at all any setting


assuming that the circuit breaker or fuse is not blown, this is most likely caused by the door switch. if the door is not closed, the dryer will not turn on, period. you will have to try to jump over the 'possibly bad' switch. first, shut off the breaker. second, wrap a putty knife with masking tape to prevent scratching up the dryer. then, use it to pop open the plastic catch on each front corner. take your time and look inside the small gap with a flashlight to help figure it out. after you have the top of the dryer safely tilted back, look for 2 wires running to the door. they will plug into a switch that is flipped when you close the door completely. you know what i mean, it probably used to click when you shut the door. unplug these wires from either side of the switch. use a piece of wire to connect them or just tape the metal ends together. this will bypass the door switch. make sure all metal parts of the wires are covered to prevent a short on the metal walls. be sure the now loose wires will not get caught on anything, like a rotating drum. close the lid most of the way. turn on the breaker and try to operate the dryer. if it now works, replace the door switch. be careful, opening the door will not shut off the dryer now. good luck

Dryer won't shut off if I take clothes out before cycle ends. I then close the door and it automatically comes on.


2 things usually. 1st, your start button is stuck. 2nd, your timer/selector switch is caught. Good luck.

NVLR333ETOWB HOTPOINT DRYER EATING CLOTHES


I have the same dryer doing the same thing. Open the door and take the two screws out and lift the top. Remove the two screws that hold the front on. Remove the front. On mine both the plastic parts that stay on the front when it is removed are cracked and needing replaced. I found over 20 buttons that the dryer had pulled off clothes stuck in the front door. I'm sure if it will be cost effective to buy both these parts or not.
