Re: dryer wont run

I imagine this has got an electronic timer ? If so then it's probably the timer board that's faulty.

If its a newer dryer, they have moisture sensors that determine if it should shut down early or stay on longer if needed. Let it run the extra time and see what happens. If it keeps doing it, then the sensor is defective.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle

Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer runs when first started, quits halway through drying cycle.

High temp. limit is probably at fault and will need to be changed.

Dryer wont run for long

After unplugging the dryer, disassemble and clear motor of all lint build up. Motor will overheat and cycle on the thermal protector if this is the case. Secondly, a malfunctioning centrifugal switch, shorted motor windings, or tight bearings could all cause this failure. A restricted vent could cause this in some dryer designs.

Whirlpool dryer

If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off

The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
