The timer has probably failed, a common problem. Easy to replace.

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

My Kenmore gas dryer only heats for short time. The burner comes on initially for about 1-2 minutes then cycles off. Later, the igniter turns on, but the burner does not come on. I have cleaned the...


if the dryer runs and heats for a short time and then no flame you have bad gas coils,when they are failing they work until they heat up and cut out,when they cool down the heat will work again for like the first 10 to 20 minutes and then cut out again.take out the two phillips screws on top of the gas valve,remove the top cover and change out the coils,check the coil with the three prongs on it or check the post you pull it off of,there should be a spacer on the post,if you don't see it on the post look in the hole of the coil,if it's in the coil poke it out and slide it back on the post,easy fix

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)


THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

Gas never ignites in any cycle in a 10yr old Kenmore dryer.


Chances are your igniter has gone bad. It must pull atleast 3.2 amps to open the gas valve and ignite the gas. A new igniter could probably purchased for 20 or 30 dollars.
