    My dryer shuts off in the middle of the cycle; at times it won't start at all. We checked vents. Yesterday it started making a scratchy noise when on; so I had to turn it off.

    Dryer randomly shuts off and will not start. Vents are cleaner dryer will not restart for like an hours. Almost seens like it is overheating. When pressing start button cycle will not start.

Is the dryer shutting off completely or is the burner going on and off erraticly? If it is the burner you probably have a faulty coil on the burner. There are two electric coils mounted on the burner. You can buy both of them in a pack cheaper than buying one by itself. Remove the lower front cover and you will see the coils on the gas valve with wires going to them. Remove the wires and bracket that holds them down and install new coils. They are made so that you can't mix them up, they only fit one way.

Hi I have a kenmore elite oasis dryer. And all of a sudden it only will run for about a minute and then it shuts off. I tried turning it back on again and it does the same thing. Then after the third time...


The first suggestion I have for you is to simply run an Air Fluff cycle with no heat.

If the Air Fluff cycle runs okay then the problem is most likely with the thermistor.

You can try to run the dryer with the vent hose off and see if there is a difference.

An "AF" code means there is a low airflow condition and the clothes may not dry properly. To remedy this, check to make sure the lint screen is cleaned off and that there is no blockage in either the vent duct that runs from the dryer to the wall or the vent hood on the exterior of the house.

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the dryer's cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.
