Your exhaust vent is clogged with lint and that caused the thermal fuse to blow. Replace the thermal fuse and correct the vent blockage.
The vent blockage could be from a plastic vent hose that is smashed.

Dryer runs for short time, then stops. will not restart.


Hello Tommy Mason - Have you try unplugging the unit or flipping the household breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. I suggest touching each button individually on keypad, do any lights turn on or does the display change? If any proves to be ineffective, I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately because it can possibly have a defective keypad.

I have a kenmore 80 series dryer. 18 years old. Makes loud buzz when starting and overheats and stops in about ten minutes. I've bypassed thermal fuse and samething happens. I've also cleaned out...


You don't want to bypass the thermal-cutoff. If the thermostat is malfunctioning, it WILL overheat and cause a fire!! For the age of it, I would replace the whole dryer! It's going to cost you more in time than the value of the unit.

Wfmc3200uc101 bosch washer doesnot spin out when a single sweater is in. the drum turns but not at full speed


i have the same problem, what i find helps put a bed sheet in with the sweater to even the load, ( I keep a sheet by the washer for this specifically) and take it off max. spin cycle for the small load (I know this sounds stupid) I have a bosch also and I have problems with small blankets too. This usually helps, but I found that if i do this under the 25 minute quick wash instead of the regular wash it doesn't spin out either, kind of stupid to run a machine with only one sweater for 58 minutes, I would never buy a front loader again, betty

My old Maytag DE307 dryer gets hot right away, then after about 2 minutes or less, stops blowing hot and goes to warm. Let it cool down,and the cycle repeats.


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

This is generally an airflow issue. Restricted airflow will cause the hi-limit thermal protector to open and turn off the heat in order to prevent a lint fire, or fabric melt issue. Remove the exhaust vent from the dryer and ascertain that there are no obstruction/restriction to the vent hood, Include the vent hood in your inspection to make sure it has not been crushed or damaged. Make sure your lint filter is cleaned after each load. Do not use fabric sheets as this will place an invisible coating on the lint filter that restricts airflow, (Replace filter). Do not overload the dryer. If your washer is newer, then larger loads are capable of overloading the dryer.
A blower malfunction or worn belts could cause lower airflow issues. Replace if worn.

Hope this helps.

Drying timer on auto dry


I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.

Whirlpool dryer


If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

Longest 6 minutes ever


I wiped off the two rows of sensors located behind the lint trap inside the drum. Now my dryer shuts off at 0 minutes. The clothes are still a little bit damp so I let the dryer run for 10 more minutes. Try it before replacing the computer board.
