Dryer stops


If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

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.

Dryer wouldnt turn on its saying door is open


most of the time. its the door switch that causes this. if door is closed and it does not start, its the door switch. try this! unplug power, remove the door switch, hook the wires from switch together. this will make a complete curcuit.put black tape on wires so it wont short out. plug back in. it should work, if it runs ok door switch is bad. good-day !

Dryer keeps cutting off and has to be restarted.


There is normally a switch inside the motor that detects in turning at speed. That keeps the dryer running until it is either stopped, the door is opened, or the cycle is through. I am guessing that the contacts are getting bad on this switch.

Runs for 4-5 minutes shuts off. Beat on door and it runs for 4-5 minutes and then won't run for about 20 minutes. Is it the door switch?


Hello

Try taking the door switch out and tieing the wires toghther with a wire nut.UNPLUG DRYER FIRST.

If dryer runs ok then its the door switch.If not then its possible the motor is heating up,you can clean the lint and dust off the motor with a vacum cleaner by taking off the rear panel or turning machine on its side.

The heater element is not heating, they are fragile easy to get to at the back of the dryer. Check the thermal or overheat switch too, but would bet its the heater element.
