Dryer shts down during load

Model : ler7646dqo serial : mf 0553308 Dryer seemed to be working then it would try to shut down then it would competely turn off. If I waited and turned it back on it would do it again. I took half the load out and it ran. Does that mean motor is going bad.

Have not solved problem but after messing with it more I think that the hi limit themostat may be the problem. It seems like if I let the dryer cool down then try it again it seems to work fine for awhile. Does this sound like something that may cause it to shut down. The load problem didn't seem to a factor for I reloaded it with the original load weight. I have not replaced part yet going to try few more loads soon.

I have a Massey Ferguson tractor serial number 9A89879 I would like to know what model it is and what year it is

I cant give you an exact date but it is from the early 70s. That is when they were yellow. My educated guess on this is 1973. If you go to a Massey Ferguson dealer with your numbers they will gladly tell you what year it is exactly.

Masterlink shut down during a CD playback and won't power up at all. No lights, no sound, nothing.

You need a competent tech to look at the possibility that the power supply has failed - seems the most likely explanation

My whirlpool dryer (model LER7646DQO) has been making noises when starting up for about a month. The last load I did I removed dry clothes and put a couple of damp items back in, pushed the start button,...

this could be one of two things the heating element that heats the air has broken or the noise you heard was the bushes on the motor going and then they burnt out.

either the heater elements need replacement or most likely the motor needs new bushes or replacing all toghether.

this will need a qualifed engineer to resolve. considering the age of the machine if it is many years old it might be cheaper to replace the machine for a new one. ask your engineer how much it will cost to repair before he starts the work and decide the best action.

I hope this was helpful.

When I push the start button on my dryer it says it is on, but it is not spinning

If the dryer seems to be getting hot and otherwise working (just not spinning), try this test -

Turn off.
With the door open, try rotating the drum by hand.
If it spins easily, and you cannot hear any connection to the drive motor, then it is very likely just the drive belt that needs replacing.
Order a spare for your specific model, and a reasonably competent DIY'er should be able to fit it.

If you are unlucky, and the motor is spinning - just not working, then replace the brushes on the motor as a first atempt at a fix. These are available online, but you will need to quote model numbers.
Again, a competent DIY fix.

If the motor is OK (after testing), then the control board may have a defective (burnt) component that needs replacement - usually by swapping the board with a good one. This repair is for experienced technicians or skilled trades.
Thank you for using Fixya.
