Check the breakers first, then the connections in the back for tightness. Have you had the thermostat looked at? It might not be allowing power to the element. I am surprised the element is O.K.

you might have a restriction in the exhaust system. check the entire exhaust vent tube/hose from the back of the dryer to the outside of the building for any restrictions. check the outside exhaust vent for any restrictions or obstructions. make shure the exhaust tube/hose are as short and straight as possible any sharp curves or bends can restrict air flow.

Our 4 cycle whirlpool dryer runs for 5 -10 minutes gets hot and shuts off.


check to see if the dryer vent is clogged up - When a dryer gets to hot it will shut off to prevent catching fire!!! If the vent is clogged it forces the heat from the dryer to stay in and that causes the dryer to over heat!!!

My dryer runs and gets hot but cloths don't dry.


Your problem may be attributed to a clogged exhaust system (e.g.: clogged inside the dryer's vent, flexible vent behind dryer clogged and/or clogged inside wall, etc.).

Sounds as if your motor is defective. It has an internal thermal switch which cuts the motor off before it gets too hot. After it cools, the switch makes up and the unit is able to run again.

Dryer only works until it gets really hot


Hello Joyce Dozier,
Some of the older dryers are the best and if you can keep them operational.. they can last a very long time.. Based on your problem description, you more than likely have a thermal cutoff switch that is cutting off power to the heater.. Over time, these thermal switches fail from age ( I can relate to that as well).. Anyway, please provide the Whirlpool model number and I may be able to track down the most likely suspects for you.. You , however, will have to rope a friend or family memeber in to replacing it... It could also be the themal sensor on the motor too..
I would unplug it and open it up to gain access to the motor.. and vacuum away all lint that may have accumulated around the motor and other areas... Provide the model number ( normally found on a tag someplace on your dryer..) and I will help you find a solution..
Regards
Rick

Dryer doesn't get hot or turn off.


yes very possible timer but my guess on the times i seen the problem would be the heating element are the thermo fuse on the elemnt canister when the heater does not come on the timer will not move ck the heater and the fuses on the heater canister it will fix your problem
