Most likely, there is a faulty thermostat. When the dryer exceeds the safety thermostat setting (which can't be changed), the dryer will stop. This is a safety to prevent a fire from starting. The thermostat can be checked with a conductivity meter, but you need to act quickly. If there is no conductivity (open switch), then the thermostat may be faulty. There is also the possibility that the dryer is running too hot and the thermostat is doing what it was designed to do (protecting you from burning down your house).

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 kenmore dryer runs for 5 minutes and shuts off. I have replaced the door switch and ran the dryer with the vent hose detached. Still not working


Try this: Find the sensing bars and clean em with 409 or windex. They may be coated with stuff from dryer sheets. This builds up a moisture barrier. The machine does not FEEL the wetness from the clothes and assumes they are dry.So it shuts down after 5 minutes. Let me know.

Keeps shutting off after 5 minutes


You have a bad motor. Part number is 279827 retails for $112.78. UNPLUG THE DRYER. You change it from the front of the dryer, lift the top with a putty knife from the front, pull the front off held with 2 screws on the inside and take the belt and drum out and you will be looking at the motor.
