Below is a video to show you how to open the unit. You will need to check the blower and motor for lint buildup. The motor is overheating. If those parts are clean, you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor to order.

SOURCE: The diagnostics say there is nothing wrong with my dryer but...

I had the same problem and my dryer was 2 1/2 years old. I also thought the problem was with the blower motor. However, the blower motor checked out fine. It turned out to be the Main Circuit Board. This is covered in the 5 year manufacturers warranty. If you don't go through GE warranty, it will cost you $170-$200 plus labor. Our technician said this is the third unit he has seen that this has happened to. If you do use GE Warranty it will cost you about the same as the are proud of their labor rates. Here is the part: http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/Search_Detail.aspx?Inventory=959920&SourceCode=6 Good luck and I hope this helps!

SOURCE: LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

SOURCE: Bosch condensation dryer model WTL5400vc. lint filter alarm

there is a reservoir in the base of the dryer which holds some condensing water prior to the pump pumping it to the holding tank at the top this has a float swith to tell the pump to come on and drain water to top tank this is probably stuck in the on position so the machine thinks it is always full of water and its waiting for you to empty it,you need to remove side panel and remove flost switch to clean, remove condenser and put youre hand in back of unit if its still very wet in there thats the problem should be bone dry at end of cycle.

hope this helps

What is wrong if my Frigidaire front load dryer


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer has been providing you with an error code "PF". Typically "PF" stands for power failure this can happen if power is shut off during a cycle or the dryer receives insufficient power, which could be an issue with your power cord or control panel. Let's perform a reset on your dryer and you can do this by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. If you need any additional assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Ge adora dryer model dhdvh52ef0ww runs for about 5 minutes then cuts off


Inside the back and the bottom of your dryer are several ( From 2 to 6 ) "overheat thermostat switches".
One of these is doing it's job really well.
These are designed to prevent your dryer from overheating and catching fire.
I suspect one of them is failing, and needs replacement.
Someone handy with electrical testing tools and mechanic's tools need to take it apart and check these to find the "bad" one.
While they have it all apart, it should need a really good cleaning inside.
Be blessed.

Hello John Sterns - First, try resetting the unit dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and if it proves to be ineffective then typically this is something that a professional would need to diagnose. Since it is such a complex unit, there are multiple possible causes; faulty power cord, house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

Dryer heats and then shuts off


know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. If you have to wait for it to cool down before it will start again, this is an indication of the motor overheating and shutting off on the motor thermal overload. This can be caused by the motor being covered in lint or a low voltage supply to the motor. Check and clean the motor of lint and see if it runs normally.

My GE gas dryer is gets warm but the clothes take hours to dry


Hello there, this could be quite a few things.

The most likely cause is something as simple as a clogged lint trap. I will assume that you have checked this out, but just in case check it one more time and use a flashlight to see if you can spot any lint trapped down a the bottom, below where the lint trap sits.

Secondly, during the summer if you live anywhere where it's humid it will be much much harder for your dryer to do it's job. I was perplexed by this same problem when we moved out here to Minnesota. I thought my dryer was broken for sure, the clothes were warm, the dryer was warm, but the clothes took literally a full day to dry, many many cycles. Is there a chance that this is what you are experiencing?

Lastly, and the most complicated of the bunch, could be a shorted element. If that's the case you could replace it yourself if you are comfortable taking apart the dryer. If it's a newer GE dryer though it's probably still under warranty and they will take care of it for you. I would check with GE in regards to the warranty status. Their phone number is 1-800-626-2005

If none of these things work, please reply (if you can reply within the next 20 minutes or so it will assure that I am the one who continues with the question) and in your reply please include the actual model number of the dryer if you could.

Dryer shuts off after 15 minutes and needs to cool down then will start again and the cylec continues!!On, off,on, off.


The problem is more likely a high temp limit switch. I don't have a schematic of your dryer, but one should be included somewhere on the dryer. You have to use a voltmeter to test the components in the circuit. The thermostat controls the heat temp, you may want to start there
