Possibly the motor is overheating due to lack of ventilation, or the lint filter requires cleaning, make sure the outlet is clear at the rear of dryer, and that the vent hose (if fitted) is not kinked.
You could also have a problem with the motor itself which is causing it to overheat and the cutout is stopping the motor from working until it cools down enough to start again.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Heats and runs, but not long enough to dry clothes; then would not turn on and run at all. maybe dryer ''thinks'' clothes are dry?


Hi, After the dryer shuts off, can you restart it right away or does it need to cool down before restarting? If it needs to cool down for a bit, the motor is going bad. If the dryer is running a full cycle but not completely dry, check your venting to the outside and make sure it is clean.
If this is a gas dryer, the coils on top the gas valve might be shutting down early and not reopening later in the heat cycle.
I hope this gives you some direction. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further on this problem

My dryer used to shut off before the clothes are dry - now it wont start at all


Ok, the light will not come on if the door pressure swicth is damaged and, the dryer will not start if this switch is damaged as well. replace the door pressure switch asap.

Ok, concerning the interuppted drying cycle due to high heat, this can be cuased by two issue. It coudl be a venalation issue. if the dryers vent duct and exuast hoses are clogged, thsi will cuased the element to reach unsafe tempreturs, in return, tripping the high limit thermostsat and shutting the dryer off in the middle of the load cycle.

Another problme spot woul dbe a fualty high limit thermaostae. Although this is highly unlikey, this coudl be your issue.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.


Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Dryer takes many cycles to get clothes dry


While researching my problem I did find that the dryer vent hose could be partially clogged. The hose should be short and horizontal.

Intelli sensor doesn't read that clothes are wet,just damp.does not get clothes dry in intelli cycle.does get them dry in timed cycle.already replaced sensor.


do you stack clothes on top? If so take them off and try another load and never ever put anything on top. It insulates it and makes the dryer not run right. Good Luck

My dryer shuts off before the clothes are dry.


when the dryer shuts off immediately check all 3 sensors w/a ohm-meter to see which one is open. That will be the one causing your problem.
