Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
I have a Kenmore Elite dryer with sensor dry and a timed cycle. The dryer is 7 years old and this problem has been going on for some time. On either cycle, the dryer will dry for about 15 minutes or less and shut off. Occasionally it will dry the entire load, but that's usually when the dryer has not been used for a few days. We replaced the thermostat about a year ago and the problem seem fixed only to resurface a few weeks after we put in the new thermostat. The dryer is properly vented and the lint trap is cleaned after each load. Any help you can give is appreciated!
Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.
