Sounds like your heating element is failing.

    It gets hot and you can smell it heating why would that shut it off

  • Tom Lawyer Oct 24, 2013

    It's a safety feature of the dryer, otherwise the dryer would probably catch on fire.

  • Tom Lawyer Oct 24, 2013

    Replace the element.

when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.

Check the vent pipe going to the outside of the house, including the vent louver, to make sure the pipe is not partially or fully clogged with lint.
