Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The dryer runs for about 5 minutes and shuts off. Very hot to touch. I disassembled the dryer and vacuumed out all of the lint yet problem is still there.
You may have a faulty motor winding or run capacitor.If the motor wind is shorted it will get hot and the thermal cutout goes open circuit (inside motor)and it starts again when cool.Also check that the air flow is OK eg Some models have a separate fan belt.Hope this helps.Cheers.
