If it is an electric dryer, pull the heating element off and make sure it is not grounding out somewhere. It may be hard to see so check it carefully.

Our 4 cycle whirlpool dryer runs for 5 -10 minutes gets hot and shuts off.

check to see if the dryer vent is clogged up - When a dryer gets to hot it will shut off to prevent catching fire!!! If the vent is clogged it forces the heat from the dryer to stay in and that causes the dryer to over heat!!!

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

The dryer will not stay on the hot setting for very long, it will shut itself off after about 5 mins. it will stay on for the other 2 heat setting but not the hot setting. please help

You need to check your high limit switch with it located on the vent pipe on the back of the system. The limit switch is saying that your Dryer is getting to hot when it may be or may not be. Most of the time it is not getting to hot. Just when it notices heat it will shut itself off. The other thing that i recommend is that you clean your lint trap and vent pipe all the way to outside.

Dryer shuts off after about 5-10 minutes of running. The top of the dryer is hot.

Howdy: There is a thermostat inside the unit in the back. If this has lint clinging to it, it will shut off unit. Also the firing ignitor has two soleniods
that stick and turns off unit too early. But with the top of dryer hot I would say the heat always stays on and the thermostat shuts off ignitor. The firing should be a pulse type heat, not a constant heat. Good luck - Doug

Clothes dryer is overheating and then shuts off

Your vent pipe is probably clogged with lint. Clean out, and blow out, if possible, If the vent is clogged, the air cannot properly escape and all that heat stays in the dryer, which probably sets off some kind of themal protection switch, preventing the dryer from running until it cools down.

Dryer not staying on.

High limit trips due to over heat. Clean vent and line and filter.

You ignitor is working and sensor is working because it will fire up. so those pesky coils are intermittant because they get hot and quit cool off and work some more . replace them

Maytag gas dryer wont stay hot

Check the exhaust to see if it is clogged. If not, you may need a pair of gas valve coils (not very hard.)
Replace the coils if you see the ignitor glow and shut off, without the gas valve opening up.
