Question about Dryers
Runs for ten minutes then quits
If it's electric and the discharge hose is plugged with lint, a thermal switch will shut it down when it reaches a preset temp. (that's too hot). Also check for lint in the discharge pipe of the dryer. It is possible that the switch is bad. It will be marked at the temp. it shuts down at. Connect switch to an ohm meter, put it in the oven (but not the meter) and make sure it's opening at the proper temp. If the switch is opening at too low of a temp. replace the switch. Bob Taylor

There is not a whole lot of info here......but it could be that your timer dial is worn out! on the other hand dryers have thermal protection switches to keep them from over heating! (FIRE!) you could have a few different problems if this is happening.

This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Tips for a great answer:
Hello everclavel - Try reprogramming the dryer by flipping the household circuit breaker off or unplugging it. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, the dryer could possibly be experiencing a communication error with the main control board, wiring failure, or faulty door lock assembly. Connect with a certified technician to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.
