Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
I just purchased a used Whirlpool Duet dryer(2 to 3 yrs. old). I hooked it up and placed it on a normal automatic cycle. The unit started up a little noisey but quitened down in approx. one min. Shortly after it broke contact three times and shut down. All programing continued normally although It would not restart when I press the start buttom. When I tried to restart I heard a click in the rear of the dryer. After 15 min or so it restarted by itself an ran approx. 2 min and shutdown the same way again. Do you have any suggestions?
Please check these common problems...blown house fuse/tripped breaker ( electric dryers need 2 )...loose white/neutral wire...broken belt ( on some models only )...door switch/door switch bracket...*thermal fuse open ( venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire...timer...motor...burnt power cord/plug...start switch ( especially the ones with a built in relay switch )
* If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first, then it is sometimes a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time. This is a picture of -some- modern thermal fuses.
Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Before I can troubleshoot your problem I have two questions:
1) Are you quite sure that the door on the dryer is shutting nice and securely and the latch is securing properly?
2) Does the dryer seem like it is overheating at all or does it seem like a normal temperature to the clothes when removed from the drum?
