Dryer starts but after a few seconds shuts down

In the last 6 months, I have fixed 3 dryers with your symptoms. In each case, after taking the dryer completely apart, I found it plugged up with a huge amount of lint. This lint was not caught by the filter screen, it had collected all over the inside of the machine. It required dismantling the machine completely to clean,. Each dryer then worked fine.
Be blessed.

When I turn my Kleenmaid dryer on, there is a buzzing sound and the red light comes on. It does not spin. Is this easy to fix or will I need a new dryer?

It seems like you might be hearing the motor running but the belt might be off the roller or broken. If it is like the dryers I have had, you can pull out the lint filter then push the two clips that hold the top down, and lift the top of the dryer, you can get a flashlight and look down into the dryer to see if the belt is OK. You can also lower the lid but not latch it then press start and open the lid to see if the motor is running, if you can see the pulley on the end of the shaft it should be spinning. The hardest part of fixing a belt problem is reaching back in the dryer to get to it. Best of luck.

GE Harmony Dryer dries fine one time won't quit sensing the next

The thermostatic fuse is getting hot during the run cycle and then staying open until the dryer cools down completely.

You may fix just by cleaning out the entire dryer. Remove the top cover and vacuum out thoroughly. Replace a torn lint screen and make sure your exhaust conduit is not leaking lint everywhere.

If you can't fix by cleaning, you will have to replace the thermostat which is a $5 part byt a $100 repair.

Help!Need This Fixed!!

If the motor alone has stopped working, you can remove the motor and test it. Most...unless labeled as such... are run at mains voltage. Use care and try that. If not working on the mains voltage, find out why you are not getting that voltage locally in the machine. Does the unit heat the food? If not, you may have an issue with the thermal overload sensor. It is black, about 10 mm in diameter and 5 mm thick...two wires coming out. Generally, it is mounted in the keyboard/power supply area against the wall of the cavity. If it is open, no power.

--Bad motor run windings
--bad motor switch
These are two possibilities.How old is the dryer. may not be worth it. get the model# from the dryer & price a motor. (new motor cures both of these possibilities)
