Question about Dryers
The dryer was running and I opened the door to throw another article in and it won't start back. I reset the breaker and ensured it was plugged in. The light is on when I open the door but it won't start back. The dryers is 8 years old. Any ideas?
You probably had been using the dryer alot today. As long as the motor was running there was enough air flow over the motor to keep it just cool enough to allow it to continue to run. When you stopped the dryer the heat tripped the thermal protector in the motor. Let it sit an hour or so and it should restart. The motor is probably coated in dryer lint, and / or the motor bearings are getting bad. If you space your drying loads out a bit you can get by for a long time without having to do anything.
