Dryer shuts off after 10-15 minutes

I have a Kenmore Dryer 110.62212101 that shuts off after 10-15 minutes even though cycle hasnt completed. I have to wait about 10-15 minutes to turn it back on only to have it happen again and again. I have checked for lint in all ports and they are 100% free of lint. Any help will be appreciated. Clint

The motor is overheating and shutting down, cooling down, overheating again. Motors are expensive and tricky to install. PLEASE rate my solution as solved if you feel I answered your question accurately.. Thanx

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

Ignites on start up ,but after initial heat cycle will not ignite again until I shut down for a few minutes then restart.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

I have a Kenmore Elite model 110.63022100. My dryer runs for 30 seconds to 1 minute before completely powering off. There is a burn smell when it stops.


Usually when an electric dryer overheats and shuts down, 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.

Kenmore electric dryer shuts off after 5 minutes and won't restar


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.
