Depending on the age of the dryer, you could have the main motor going bad. When the motor isn't working properly it will run for a while and then it gets hot and since it has an internal heat safety it shuts off, It won't start again usually for about 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour after it cools back down.

Dryer LG 1100 shuts off after a few minutes. If you set it for 54 minutes, you check if after 5 minutes it reads 14 minthen in 5 minutes it starts cooling down. The clothes are still wet.


Clean your lint filter, and clean the entire line vent from the dryer to the outside export port, also look inside the dryer vent hook up for obstructions and remove any lint. Keeping these parts lint free will save you energy and also drying time and maintenance repairs. My dryer is 18 years old.

My gas drier shuts off before clothes are dried


Also it can be a few other issues:

1: It could be an issue with the lint catcher. Take the lint catcher out, clean off all the see-able lint, then take it to the bathroom and try to run water through it. If the water settles or doesn't run through very well, take an old toothbrush and scrub that clean under water until water passes through easily. This issue caused my dryer to shut off without being dry too
2: Depending on how new your dryer is, it may have a dryness sensor in it. That sensor may not be working well or at all causing the problem as well.
3: Finally your heater could be going out in your dryer and causing it to hot get hot enough in the time you set for the clothes to be dry.

Hope these 3 things help you.

the fault is lint build up around the dyer element the element must be cleared of all lint after years of use despite having a catcher lint does get into the dryer in time it will build around the heating element and start to burn this is unsightly but more so very dangerous as it does cause house fires have the element cleaned

best of luck

My Asko dryer does not dry clothes. It shuts off


It is quite common for lint to cover the blower on these units, making it impossible for the dryer to move any air.

1)remove the lower panel. you will need a T20 driver for this and may need to tip the dryer slightly to the rear

2)remove the left part of the blower plenum. this is held by 3 plastic tabs and a T15 screw

You will now see the blower wheel, it is a squirrel cage type. Check for lint buildup, broken vanes, or string/thread wrapped around the shaft.

if there is no problem with the blower then there is another reason you are not moving air. let me know if this helps

First make sure that your exhaust pipe going outside is completely clear. Also you may need to clean the lint out of the drier. If you take the lint catcher assembley off on the inside, ther will be alot of lint inside. Just clean out what you can by hand, then vacuum out the rest. This should take care of your problem.

Gas dryernot heating up


hi,

try and reset the motherboard by unplugging power and waiting a few minutes and plug back in. What did you clean your dryer with?
If it was sharp you may have nicked a sensor, buy the wiring diagram and study away. Use caution with gas of course, shut it off look for shutoff , the flexible lines are brittle, be careful take time.
