I have never seen one of these dryers but I would imagine the control thermostat is probably not working and the safety limit is tripping OR the vent is blocked causing excessive heat and tripping the safety. The filter might be blocked with lint. It supposed to be cleaned after every load.

SOURCE: Dryer runs for 5 minutes then stops

look in the vent line for a small disk shaped overload with two wires coming out of it. it may be bad. also check for a lint build-up in the exhaust line out of the blower. check the damper outlet going out of the house for a build-up of lint.

SOURCE: TDC 30 Dryer starts but after 5 mins "clicks and stops"

its probably the relay (brown plastic box at the front under lid)! Symptoms are usually.... the dryer will go for a few minutes then shut down.... then you have to wait for it to start

Trips


The switch could be bad. Make sure there are no clogs anywhere that could be causing it to overheat. Try to bypass the switch and run it just long enough to see if you can go longer than the normal 5 min. you're getting. If you can then replace the trip switch. Do not continue to use the machine without the trip switch operating properly or it could catch on fire.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!
