if it still quits heating after a minute or so then its either a weak cycling thermostat or moisture sensor thermistor,both located on the blower housing, or the moisture sensor bars located near the door opening on the dryer,or it could be a high limit thermostat thats bad on the burner tube itself
dryer usually overheats because of a kink or blockage in the duct work,
blockage in the outside wall cap, or because of a defective cycling
thermostat. The cycling thermostat tells the dryer when to heat and not
to heat. Clean any lint from the inner and outer ductwork. You can also
remove the vent from the back of the dryer for a load or two to
determine if the clothes dry faster or not. If this doesn't fix it, go
ahead and replace the cycling thermostat. Make sure to use the
appropriate setting to dry the clothes.
i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.
There is a clip inside your dryer door that acts as snap (kinda like on baby clothes). It snaps the door closed - so to speak. If the outer part of that 'snap' gets a little stretched out it will not hold as tightly. When those heavy, wet clothes hit against the door it pops it open because the 'snap' is not working right. As long as the outer part of the 'snap' is still intact, you can fix this problem by simply squeezing it together alittle to make it grab tighter so that the door stays closed while drying your clothes. If that doesn't make it tight enough you could tear off a small corner of a paper towel to fill in the hole a little to make it tighter.
what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know
Yes, the felts are what seals the unit and allows the drum to turn without much heat loss. The felt can become damaged and the clothes will get caught between the drum and the housing leaving these marks.
first thing you need to know is that heat is not all it takes to get your clothes dry. what you need is to get the moisture from the clothes out of the dryer. the only way this happens is with air flow and that is what you are lacking. the way to find out is make sure your lint filter is clean, then check to see how much air is going out of the house. most likely the vent is pinched off behind the unit causing very little air flow. if the vent is straight and as short as possible, then you may need to have your vent cleaned out fro the unit to outside your house. clean or fix the vent and if you can remove the vent from the dryer, let the air go into your laundry room and try a load that way, if it works then you know the vent is the problem.
possible bad thermal fuse remove back look for small white object on left side just above blower on side if lint screen housing with continuity checker ck to make sure there a closed connection through fuse
The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.
To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port.
