    It is a front loader and a home dryer. I can dry a load and have to wait about an hour until it cools down before I can use it again. When it's hot it won't start up.

The secret to great dryer performance is air flow. Fresh air must enter from the rear of the dryer through the vents and exit through the exhaust. If this flow is compromised it will increase the dry times. The length and condition of your exhaust vent would be the first place to check. Some of the industry have said that if you use dryer sheets the lint filter could be plugged from the wax used in dryer sheets. This idea is not industry wide. If your lint filter apears to have a white color across the mesh, then it is plugged. Warm soapy water and a soft brush will clear your filter. Your dryer was designed to have a certain amount of cubic feet per minute of air flow. Anything that changes that will effect your drying cycle time. Lint build up inside the dryer can also restrict air flow. A back up of hot air will cause the thermostats to cycle off prematurely.It can also cause the the drive motor to over heat, the thermal overloads on the drive motor will kick out and keep the dryer from restarting again until the motor cools off. A loud buzzing noise or a lack to start or both can mean a bad motor.

Lg dryer is overheating blowing the thermal fuse


you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.
a simple verification can be performed by disconnecting the vent hose from the dryer and see if this solves the problem.

Dryer will only dry clothes half way, then when i go to continue drying,dryer will not turn back on until cooled down


Hi, the motor is overheating. i recommend inspecting the motor windings for splits or separation within the strands. make sure all wire connectors to the motor are not corroded or lose. replace the motor if there are signs of windings failures or discolored copper strands.

After 6 loads of clothes dryer will not start for the 7th load.after waiting for approx. 60 mins. dryer starts up and functions as normal


After 6 loads...yeh, well the dryer is obviosly overheating. It takes awhile to cool down, and then will operate as normal again.
When it overheats, the thermostat activates, and stops the dryer from running until it cools down.
But why does it overheat? Have you been cleaning the lint filter after every load, as recommended? If not, this can cause the problem because of restricted airflow. Have you been overloading the dryer? Again, this can cause overheating.
Something to check; when the dryer has normal load, try carefully rotating the drum by hand, in its normal direction of rotation. If it is very stiff to turn, or scraping, then that can cause this problem also. Maybe a bearing problem can cause the stiffness or scraping. I hope its not the problem.
Let me know how it goes please.

Dryer shts down during load


Have not solved problem but after messing with it more I think that the hi limit themostat may be the problem. It seems like if I let the dryer cool down then try it again it seems to work fine for awhile. Does this sound like something that may cause it to shut down. The load problem didn't seem to a factor for I reloaded it with the original load weight. I have not replaced part yet going to try few more loads soon.

Whirlpool dryer


If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck
