SOURCE: hoover tumble dryer (model D6034) cuts out after

may possibly be the motor protection thermistor, open back and see if the motor is caked with lint, if so blow it all clear with compressed air,

as usual make sure you unplug before taking panel off.

My whirlpool awz 231 does not dry clothes,i take the back of the machine and test for continuity at both the thermostats and the element,all seems fine,i start a warm cycle and it works for about 15/20...

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Ive changed the ignitor, sensor, thermostat, fuse-thrml, and thermostat-fix.. my dryer still is only heating for only 5 min then goes cold. what can i do? model: LGR7646JQ0

This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.

I have an older Kenmore gas dryer model # 97260100 it heats up for 15 minutes then goes cold, drum continues to run can u give me any insight as to what needs to be replaced

The problem is either of the cycling thermostat, high-limit thermostat or the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valve assembly. Disconnect power then verify any of these condition by bypassing the thermostats. Refer to the image below and locate the thermostats.
Note: This is an image of an electric dryer but the thermostat and the thermal cut-off (cut-out) locations are the same.

Disconnect each of the thermostat wires then connect and insulate them properly. Once done, reconnect power and start the dryer. The gas valve solenoid coils are indeed faulty and both need to be replaced if the problem still persists. Click here for the procedure in replacing the solenoid coils.

Gas Valve Solenoid Coils Replacement Procedure

Either or both of the cycling thermostat and the high-limit thermostat are malfunctioning if the dryer continues to heat up with the thermostats bypassed. Disconnect power then reconnect the cycling thermostat wires but keeping the high-limit thermostat bypassed. Reconnect power then start the dryer. The high-limit thermostat is the culprit if the dryer continues to heat up. If not, then the cycling thermostat is the culprit.

Also do the other way; that is reconnecting the high-limit thermostat wires but keeping the cycling thermostat bypassed. The cycling thermostat is the culprit if the dryer continues to heat up. If not, then the high-limit thermostat is the culprit.

Replace the faulty thermostat and it should solve the problem.

Dryer stops while clothes drying it appears dryer is over heating, because it takes a while before you can start it back


You have correctly identified the problem - your dryer is overheating. This will almost cetainly be caused by your thermostat having failed in the closed (on) position. The thermostat switches power to the heating coil on/off to keep the dryer at a roughly constant temperature.

Your dryer also has a thermal fuse which cuts all power to the dryer when it overheats. The thermal fuse takes 15-30 minutes to reset - this is why you can't restart the dryer for a while.

Basically, you need a new thermostat!

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks!
