Question about Crosley CDE6000 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer shuts off and won't restart until it cools off

I have a Crosley model CDE22B6VC electric dryer. It will run for about 10 to 15 minutes then shut off. Once the dryer has cooled down it can be restarted but then it will run only for another 10 to 15 minutes. I recently cleaned all the duct work and exhaust from the front of the dryer thought the outside vent and there is plenty of air flow through the exhaust so I know it is not blocked. Could the high limit thermostat or the thermostat control be the problem?

More likely a bad motor ..excessive lint build up in dryer will reduce air flow through motor causing it to overheat problem is by the time the lint problem is found and corrected motor is already gone

Check the thermal fuse and thermostats again to eliminate them as suspects. Both should be zero ohms at room temperature. If you eyed the entire duct system from lint filter to outside of the house for lint, then these are probably OK.

One thing that will shut down a dryer: a defective door switch. If you turn the timer on with the door shut and can hear or see it progressing (running) then the door switch is OK.

If your door switch is operating marginally, the heat can expand the body of the switch and open the circuit (and shut the dryer off until it cools). Check the switch with an ohmmeter with the dryer disconnected from power.

A loose spade terminal on this switch (or anywhere else) can do this too.

Also, a misaligned door or defective door clasp might do this after heating up.

Keep thinking 'heat expands' and you might find it.

The only other thing left is a defective timer.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Dryer runs for about 5 minutes then shuts off the clothes are hot


Your vent may be obstructed causing the dryer to trip, once it cools down it will reset itself. The way to see if thats the problem is to disconnect the vent and run the machine, if it doesn't shut off, you will need to clear the vent.

Dryer shuts off after 15 minutes and needs to cool down then will start again and the cylec continues!!On, off,on, off.


The problem is more likely a high temp limit switch. I don't have a schematic of your dryer, but one should be included somewhere on the dryer. You have to use a voltmeter to test the components in the circuit. The thermostat controls the heat temp, you may want to start there

Dryer gets hot and shuts off after five minutes,


Check your vent tube to make sure it is clear. It is probably getting to hot because there is no ventilation to the outside. When you have the front off, check all the way from the lint filter to the outsid of the house.
