It is possible that it is overheating and the internal tem sensor is shutting down. Excvess lint can cause this and it needs serice intervention to do this unless you know how to clean the lint filter.
It has the potential to catch fire if the sensor fails sometime and the unit runs on overheating to the point of becoming flammable

We have an LG electric dryer Model number DLE2050W and when I turn it on it starts and runs but after awhile the illuminated board goes black,but the dryer continues to run. But it will not shut off.


I have an educated guess for you. A part of each control of a washer and a dryer is a little electric "clock". Those things can fail. I sounds like you may have a timer clock that is sticking and not advancing.
These " clocks" are a part of the times, and are not sold separately.
One way to possible tell would be to put your ear to the area of the control panel where the timer is and listen. Most of those "clocks" tick, and you can often hear them, or you can watch the dial, and it should advance with a click every so often.
Be blessed.

Dryer will start run 5 minnutes shut down


After the dryer has been started to run, the motor will stop only when at least one of the motor feeder circuit wires is disconnected. The main feed line is routed through the timer while the neutral feed line is routed through the door switch. Hence, the problem is either the timer or the door switch. But the dryer shuts down 5 minutes after it is started and this signifies a dead spot in the timer that discontinues the main feed line shutting the motor down and also the timer motor. If the timer stops at the same point, then the timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Replacing the timer is an easy task that an average handy housewife can do. Just make sure the power to the dryer is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Pull the timer knob off the console then remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and move the panel away.

Disconnect the wires from the timer terminals one at a time then connect it to the new timer to avoid swapping out the wires.

Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket then remove the timer and secure the new timer in place. Put the console rear panel back into position and secure it with the screws.

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...


Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Have a 90 series kenmore dryer, won't always run. replaced the motor about 6 months ago, and now it will sometimes run, sometimes not. It gets hot, and will run for a bit then shut down, then start up...


If the timer is not advancing but is ticking that could be the problem. A dryer achieves a set temperature and stays there for a certain amount of time during a cycle. If the time never changes it may just keep heating up until the heat sensor shuts it down. If it is starting and shutting down its likely still related to the heat sensor.

Dryer automatically starts when the door is shut


Hello there:
This may not be just a timer issue this could be the door switch that is not operating correctly if this switch fails they will fail in the run position meaning the unit will want to run automatically when the door is closed
so what you are going to want to do is to try to remove the door switch and see if the dryer now runs if not there is the problem simply get a new one and reinstall it now if it is the timer you will have to remove the back panel the panel behind the knobs in the back it should have 8 screws
now after it is removed locate the timer it should be the one that controles the different time settings on the dryer. simply remopve the wires attached to it and mark them so you know where they go and get a new one and install and replace the wires and test if all is good than put the back cover back on ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Dryer Shuts off with full load


ok so it runs for the full time set when on timed dry. auto from optimum or less dry runs quickly, correct?
Auto runs on yours by advancing the timer whenever the thermostat is satisfied with the temp coming out. This has a wire that runs from the heater to a resister mounted in the console area then to the timer providing the power to run the timer motor. Most commonly the heater is the cause. GE dryers have 2 elements side by side that operate indepenently but if one goes out the unit will still heat but the circuit for auto is like the heater is off advancing the timer.
the heater is located behind the drum on the wall. first measure the resistance on the resister, i believe 1.4 k ohms see diagram behind it.
to get to heater, remove 2 phillips screws inside door opening top holding top down. then lift top and slide to left if plastic console. to unhook from console. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet, disconnect wires at bottom left on panel. reach inside on bottom (2 hands may be necessary) pull tensioner arm to right and hook on motor side, it will stay there till pushed. you will get red grease on you. Now you can pull the drum straight out, its a tight fit up front you can remove a side screw to help. you now have an excellent view of the heater. any breaks in either coil?
