    Dryer will start but wont stay running when you release start button. If you hold start button it will run but will not heat. after about 10 minutes it will run fine.

If it starts and runs but then you have to let it cool down before it will turn on again then the motor has gone bad

Dryer stops tumbling, but heating element stays on


Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat

Dryer spins but won't get hot. Bad heating element? If so , where is it located?


Check your circuit breaker. It may not be your dryer at all. 220 dryers run on two separate circuits one to run the motor the other to run heating element.

My Kenmore dryer won't stay on when you push the start button it starts and turns off real quick. I have gotten new fuses and replaced them and it still won't work.

Dryer won't stay running. It will start, run 10-15 seconds, then shut off. I can restart it immediately but get the same results.


i would check the door switch. it may be worn just enough that the vibration of the dryer opens the circuit for just a moment. then check for other loose connections. the fact that you can restart immediately usually indicates a momentary break in the circuit. a temperature switch usually takes a short time to reset. while it's still running, try rattling various switches or smack the door to see if it shuts off. (just a couple of simple ideas to start with).
good luck....jay

Dryer element stays warm


If it heats w/ the timer in off position whenever plugged in the the element is shorting to ground, its most likely due to either a broken coil or a cracked insulator. If heating w/ timer set for drying but motor is not running, the heat circuit thru the centrifugal/start switch on the motor is stuck closed.
