Check to make sure vent/air flow is not restricted.
Try to start dryer soon after it stops. If it hums and does not start, motor is cutting out.
If you touch the motor you will find it to be 'very hot' Touch only for 3-4 seconds.

The 'high limit' is tripping> Clean the lint filter and tube all the way in, it's full of lint and the hot air is restricted.

SOURCE: matag performa dryer heats but won't tumble.

After checking the door switch and belt (both ok) I took the wires
from the thermal fuses-- straight wired them together and the dryer started working. I went to my local appliance center,
purchased the thermal fuse kit --replaced the old fuses--now it
runs great.
I hope this helps someone else with this problem.

Where is thermostat located on ge dryer,starts hot then it gets cool


Dryer possibly overheating due to plugged vent. They will go into a safe mode and shutdown the heater if not enough airflow. Results in starting hot but ending with a cold load of clothes! Check the belt to ensure the dryer fan is working and that the drum is properly rotating. If OK and the vent is clear then check the thermostat. Depengin on the type (Gas vs electric) there are a number of limit thermostats as well as a main thermostat. Likely you have a a limit switch kicking in to shut off the heater. Normally from lack of airflow (plugged vent, fan broken, etc...) Once unit cools down will start back up but shut down again once the heater comes on. Also check to see if the heating element is shorted to the side of the metal case. Will heat up and be intermittent.

Shuts off before clothes are dry, will restart and shut off again


Most likely, the operating thermostat has failed. When the dryer heats up, it gets too hot and the high limit thermostat turns the machine off. After it cools down, it will start again.

Unplug the machine! Check the thermostats for continuity with a multimeter. All thermostats should have continuity at room temperature.

Have a 90 series kenmore dryer, won't always run. replaced the motor about 6 months ago, and now it will sometimes run, sometimes not. It gets hot, and will run for a bit then shut down, then start up...


If the timer is not advancing but is ticking that could be the problem. A dryer achieves a set temperature and stays there for a certain amount of time during a cycle. If the time never changes it may just keep heating up until the heat sensor shuts it down. If it is starting and shutting down its likely still related to the heat sensor.

Gas dryer get hot but than goes cold


This sounds like a problem with your fan motor. The dryer is getting too hot and the gas is shutting off until it cools down. That fan keeps the dryer cool by moving the heat to the clothes in the drum.
You can easily check this by feeling for air flow in front of the exhaust vent outside. No air movement = fan problem = heat shut off in 10 minutes. Good luck

With the limited information you gave I will assume this is a gas dryer that the flame starts for a minute or so and then shuts off. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

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 turns off after one minute.


Sounds as if your high temperature thermostat is going bad or is bad. Check your thermostats. If your dryer gets to hot this will shut it down for safety reason!
