I have a Gas Whirlpool dryer model GGQ9800PW3. The dryer stops before the cycle is complete. It can be restarted, but again it will work for a while then shut off. I changed the temp setting from med

Oh oh sorry to say this but sounds like the motor windings are going bad? does it shut off then about 30 to 60 minutes later u can start agin? a bad cycling thermostat or thermistor could be culprit but I doubt that in ur case.

We have a Maytag Electric dryer that is not heating up totally. Removed the vent tube and seemed to help but I check the Ohm's on the thermometer and was working. Tsted the col for ohms and at the RX1...

Hi, If your resistance is 2-3 Ohms, then your element is on it's way out . It needs to be replaced. The resistance should be in the range of 7-20 Ohms on a 240 Volt dryer heating element with the multimeter set at RX1. Good work finding that.

There are some additional reasons a dryer will not dry, have no heat, or cause the element to burn out prematurely.

1 If the exhaust vent run distance is too long. i.e. more that 15 feet the heating element life will be shortened Why? Because in a long vent run the vapor from the most clothes condenses on the sides of the vent hose and lint sticks to it. This lint accumulates and reduces the internal diameter of the hose. This increases air friction and the element runs at a higher temperature, etc. etc.
Solution: Clean the vent system out, or replace with a shorter system, if possible. There is an accessory fan available that can be installed that allow you to have a very long exhaust vent run. See Link

2 Exhaust vent hose folded or squeezed almost or completely shut at back of dryer. This ocures when the machine is too close to the wall pinching the hose. No air carrying the moisture leave the dryer.
It can get hot and after the cycle is done. The clothes are still wet. Solution: Pull out dryer and unfold hose.

Don't use a dryer without a vent hose attached. The dryer will pull the hot air with lint in it back into the machine. Over a period of time this lint can accumulate in the machine and cause a "lint fire" Lint fires inside a dryer sometimes turn into house fires.

Hope this helps,
Happy New Year

DLE0332W--dryer continually runs like its in wrinkle free mode. Will not complete regular dry cycle.

You may have an issue with the control board and it will not shut down once the cycle has been completed. You will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose the problem.
Good luck

Kenmore 68702 electric dryer heat doesnt shut off

If the dryer completes the cycle bit does not shut off, then you have to replace the timer control assembly.

If instead the dryer hangs at the middle of the cycle and does not advance, check the thermostate.

If the dryer does not heath and does not advance, then check the heating element, the thermostat and the fan.
