My dryer runs for about 10-20 minutes then shuts off because it must be overheating. After it cools down I can run it again. Is that an element problem?

Dryer runs for about 5 minutes then shuts off the clothes are hot


Your vent may be obstructed causing the dryer to trip, once it cools down it will reset itself. The way to see if thats the problem is to disconnect the vent and run the machine, if it doesn't shut off, you will need to clear the vent.

Dryer shuts off after about 10 minutes. Motor feels hot, real hot. I think it is overheating and shutting off. The lower the setting the longer it will run. Is it the Thermal fuse or thermostat?


There might be a problem with the bushing of the dryer motor that causes the rotor to become shorted with the magnetic field and that's the reason why it becomes too hot. It is also the reason why the thermostat shuts off the motor when it becomes too hot to avoid overheating. Replace the bushing of your motor.

Either the motor gets hot and blows the breaker or if it is electric the heater element gets hot and then shorts out...



There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Our kenmore eliite HE4 gas dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes of running no mattter what heat setting we put it on. On air dry mode it works. Is this a high heat sensor problem? The unit is 4...


You didn't mention if the dryer is getting hot.


If is getting hot, then shutting off, I agree with you.

If it is NOT getting hot, I would suspect the IGNITER ASSY

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle


Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes


The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.

DRYER STARTS BUT IMMEDIATELY SHUTS OFF


If you are having the same problem I had, the motor gets hot and shuts off. My motor was making a fairly loud noise when I cut it on. It would run for a minute or two and then shut off. I had to replace the motor. Motors are fairly cheap and not that hard to install. I paid $50 for a new one on ebay including shipping.

Heat runs ten minutes than heat shuts off continues to run


I'm thinking the thermostat has failed, it get's too hot and the emergency over temp sensor kills the flame before a fire is started.
