LG Model DLE1501W - I set the dryer for appropriate cycle. It shuts off after 10-15 mins or so. clothes are still wet.


The moisture sensors seem to be the issue. The two metal bars on the lint filter housing. Try cleaning with alcohol and stop using dryer sheets.

I have a May tag Neptune Nat gas. It starts and lights the flame but after 11/2 to 2 min the flame shuts off Checked the temp sensor and has continuity. What could be shutting the gas off? Thanks


The air passage may be blocked, and it's shutting the flame down to keep from burning your house down. Check the lint trap and the exhaust hose/exterior fitting for blockage.

Dryer is tumbling but no heat - when I reset it shuts off after about 10 min and the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights are all flashing.


Janet McDonald,

I understand that you are having trouble with your dryer not heating and not running a full cycle and shutting off with the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights flashing. What I suggest is to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle. If it does not complete the cycle and shuts off with the lights flashing, I suggest to either contact the manufacturer or a local appliance technician. This way you will be able to locate the cause of this issue and have it resolved.

-Best Regards-

My GE dryer shuts down after running for a wile when I open the door to check if the clothes are dry. It seems to start back up after cooling down for about 20 min. Any answers ?


There is an overheat protection thermostat that could be faulty, but it usually indicates that the exhaust tubing is full of lint and there is inadequate airflow. This can be a fire hazard, so you should regularly "Shop Vac" the lint out of the pipe.

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.

Burner lights 5-10 seconds shuts down. Good air flow. Gas smell at times out vent.


The burner will shut off for various reasons.

First, there is a sensor right at the burner flame. If the sensor does not indicate flame the gas is shut off to avoid filling your house with gas. It is usually a short metal rod. Oftentimes cleaning it will get it working again. Or the signal from the sensor isn't getting back to the controller, so check for loose connections.

This page explains it well.

There are some other sensors that will shut the heat down. A temp sensor where the hot air leaves the dryer drum. This is to keep from overheating the clothes and lighting them on fire. If this sensor is bad, or the wiring to it is not getting that signal back to the controller, the dryer will shut the burner down. Although 10-15 seconds is pretty short, this is a possibility. Try different heat settings to see if you get the same result. If it only happens on one heat setting you most likely have a bad temp sensor.

Another possibility is that the gas valve (solenoid) is getting near the end of its life and can't stay open long. This is not likely, but still possible since the burner does light.

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/gascoil.php

Next possibility is that the gas line is partially plugged. When the burner fires the gas pressure drops rapidly. When the burner goes out the gas sneaking past the obstruction raises the pressure back up.

Final possibility is a bad controller.

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)


THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible
