    Normally if a drier shuts off by itself in the middle of the cycle it is due to over temp. Could be motor or heater circuit for overtemp.protection. Mostly, check for dirty inlet air vents. (mostly the problem). If nice and clean make sure it does not stand to close to the wall as that air restriction creates all sorts of problems. Silly question, how long has it been since you have opened up the drier and cleaned the lint from it?

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

Washer keeps shutting down after running for a few minutes


Check the program controller unit, check if there is any loose connection to the wiring to the controller, the relay or the motor and the power plug.
When the machine shuts down then check on the power to the unit , check the door switches, the sensors , in case there is a false alarm..

You didn't mention if the dryer is getting hot.


If is getting hot, then shutting off, I agree with you.

If it is NOT getting hot, I would suspect the IGNITER ASSY

Our kenmore elite bottom freezer is making a loud humming noise. It shuts off when door is open..and continues when door is shut. Temperatures are fine, no error message, it rarely stops..like it is trying...


Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Cleaned the freezer and reloaded...no hum..at least for now.

I constantly got E1 Error code on my Kenmore Elite H3 GAS dryer


E1 error code indicates an open thermistor or open thermistor circuit. A thermistor is a component that relays the temperature in the dryer to the control board. If the thermistor has failed, Error code E1 will be displayed.
You need to call a repair person to fix it.
