Maytag MED5700TQ occasionally completely shuts down during cool down mode


Sure!
You may have a bad timer, that is turning off the electricity to the motor while the heater is still energized.

Long time ago, dryers had about 3 "automatic shut-off's" two on the heating element, and one on the motor.
Because of the lint that comes with drying clothes, fire is always a danger.
Today, the "thermostat shut-off's" are up to 5, 6, or 7 on some models!
Sounds like your dryer is getting hot enough to trip one of these. When the whole machine cools down, the thermostat resets, and the machine starts again.'
I had a dryer do the same thing. The problem with that one was nothing more than dust and lint in the motor, and all I had to do was vacuum out or blow out the motor about once or twice a year.
Be blessed

Fridgidaire dryer model aeq7000eso isn't heating


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

3 years old, totally dead dryer


remove the back panel look on the side of the heating element look for a small red button on the thermal fuse push it in.
Also look on the left side by the belt and motor you should see a black piece of plastic with small springs on it push it to the right to reset it if this has tripped,this is a saftey kill switch that gets activated by the drum belt if there if a sudden problem with the belt tension

My electric GE dryer stopped working today, when


sounds like the motor is running, the belt could likely be broken and be the culprit, this is if the motor is turning for sure after you start the dryer

Dyrer will spin but no heat, i noticed the other day after i took cloths out it was fire red in the back of dryer. model # ler6620pq0


It sounds like a lack of airflow.
Has the lint trap been cleaned?
Depending on the view you had of the "fire red", you could be looking at the heating coils, which will glow some. Unless the overtemp switch is not functional, returning air flow to the dryer may be the only issue.

Dryer wont get hot in the am i try it it will wrk for one load then wont get hot same thing for 4 days now


I have a Whirlpool dryer with LP gas, 7 1/2 years old. It will fire up once or twice after started then the next time it is supposed to fire it will make a buzzing sound. No heat. It will not produce heat after this until it sits for awhile then the same thing, will fire once or twice then no more. I replaced the ignitor and this did not solve the problem although it did have a consistent firing for about 3 minutes immediately after I replaced the part. then it started buzzing again and would not fire anymore. The propane line doesn't appear to be the problem either since it will work initially. Also the gas water heater in the house works fine.

Whirlpool gas dryer


From the sound of your problem, it appears you may have a faulty overtemp switch that gets too hot , opens the circuit to disable gas and flame, then cools down and allows it to start again.. Since you didn't provide a specific model number with your question.. use this link to find replacement whirlpool thermal fuses etc.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/whirlpool-dryer.php#fuse

Hope this helps..
