Might be something lugging down the motor causing it to shut down on overload. Too many clothes,bad rollers, idler, or slides. All can cause the motor to have fits. It might just be time to replace the motor or try and oil it. They don't put any oil holes for the bearings. You must make some. Use high temp oil to fill the bearing wells. Work the motor free. If you are gonna replace the motor remember the blower wheel has backwards threads.

Hi, In looking at your problem please do the following. Go behind the dryer. The vent hose that is attached to the back of the dryer has to go straight to the wall outlet. It must not have any bends whatsoever. Its a straight shot to the wall. This should take care of it shutting off and being too hot. You may need, after the above, to change out the cycling thermo. Thanks for your inquiry and hope this helps. Have a Good Day!

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.

Dryer starts drying and thinks clothes are dry, but they aren't


Check the timer, and the sensor. Sounds like it is having a problem with the timer or sensor no noticing that the clothes are still wet. Please rate if satisfied. Thank you

Dryer cuts off before clothes are dry.


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.

My Kenmore Mod 110.68722700 clothes dryer stops drying the clothes if run too long. The lights are on but it appears to power off. Any help please?


Let it cool down completely. Disconnect the vent from the back and turn on the dryer. See if there is proper air flow. Try running a load with the vent hose off. If it works now the vent hose is clogged.
