Power Working fine but keeps shutting off

I started my dryer this morning and within one minutes time it shut off.  I tried to start it again but it seemed there was no power.  I tried turning the breaker on and off but it still would not turn on.  I waited about 20 mins and tried again and the same thing happened again.  It started but turned right off.  I waited another 20 mins and tried again and now it seems to be working fine.  It has been running for about 5 mins now.  Any suggestions?

Hi jenniferlahm,
This type problem usually shows it mean head when your motor is going bad. The motor will run for just a moment then it gets really hot and shuts off till cool. I bet when you start the dryer you hear a unusuall humm as the motor starts. If you are not hearing a hestating humm as it starts then the problem may be elsewhere. Other possible problems that casue this would be. the tub rollers. To check the rollers reach inside and try to turn the tub with your hand. you should be able to turn the tub. if not you may need new rollers, or pads. Good luck and I hope its not a bad motor, but if it is let me know and I can have you one there in no time.

Frigidaire LEQ1442ES1 will run only a few minutes. Heats up runs aprox 3-4 minutes then shuts off, starts beeping and lights on the right side of the panel blink rapidly. Pushing cancel stops it and y


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer, LEQ1442ES1, will run and then shut down after three or four minutes. I would recommend a reset on your dryer which you can do by unplugging your power cord for roughly ten minutes.

If that does not correct the issue it sounds like a potential problem with your control panel or a sensor. I would suggest having a professional come out and repair your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that


I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

I HAVE A DRYER THAT WAS WORKING FINE, THEN TURNED OFF. I PUSHED THE BUTTON AND IT WOULDN'T TURN BACK ON. NEXT MORNING TRIED AGAIN AND IT TURNED ON FOR 5 MINUTES THEN SHUT OFF. WON'T TURN BACK ON. I THINK...


Would first check the door switch. This can be done by finding door switch, with door open hold in switch and jiggle around while pushing the start switch. If it tries to start, replace the switch.
