    Hi, the model # is: LE7080XSN1 Whirlpool. It doesn't seem to hesitate when it startes, I just tried to start it and it worked it is still running, but once the dryer warms up it will silently shut off, and won't start agin untill it cools off and sometimes not then. When it won't start it just makes the starting hum but won't actually start the turning. I hope this helps you know the problem. I hate to get rids of it and have to get another. It is still running after 7 minutes, but I know it won't go a full load.
    Thanks for any help,
    Bobbi

When it does start does it seem to hesitate or have a louder hum than normal upon startup? Please write back with the model number and I can further assist you. The vibration from the dryer being on could be disconnecting the power behind the plug in the wall. turn off breaker to that dryer and make sure connections are good to the outlet...I have seen this happen before. If it seems slow to start when it does start and make a hesitating humming sound before it gets going your motor maybe going on overload and shutting off. Therefore you would need a new motor....please let me know...

Kenmore 80 series dryer stoping after running for 10 to 15 minute


Start any cycle. Dryer runs for 10 to 15 minutes, then stops before cycle is complete. Start again, stops again in 10 to 15 minutes.
