Dryer runs for few mins the shouts off


Hello David Neal, I appreciate your post!

I see that you are stating your Frigidaire dryer will run for a few minutes and then shut down. It sounds like a potential problem with your control panel or wiring harness. I would seek assistance from a profession technician to come out and properly diagnosis your dryer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Ge adora dryer model dhdvh52ef0ww runs for about 5 minutes then cuts off


Inside the back and the bottom of your dryer are several ( From 2 to 6 ) "overheat thermostat switches".
One of these is doing it's job really well.
These are designed to prevent your dryer from overheating and catching fire.
I suspect one of them is failing, and needs replacement.
Someone handy with electrical testing tools and mechanic's tools need to take it apart and check these to find the "bad" one.
While they have it all apart, it should need a really good cleaning inside.
Be blessed.

Dryer runs for 10 mins and shuts off.


Your dryer motor has a thermal overload built in to it. If your symptom is shutting down allow to cool and it works again for a few minutes the shuts down again.

Gas dryer runs for 30 mins then shuts off.


This is a common problem that is not a good one. But the motor is goin bad. If you try to start it you will hear like a hum then start. Motor is going bad and over heating and shutting down on overload. Sorry. Hope this helps.

Dryer runs for about 3 min. then shuts off. Its not the reset. Let it sit for a few min. and the power comes back. Stop is flashing on panel.


have you cleaned the filter, so dryers stop if the dryer filter needs to be cleaned, also when you pull it out, clean underneath the filter, down in the dryer, lint gets down in there after a while......it may help.....good luck.....
