Dryer shuts off after 1 minute. No loud noises, etc. Other that shutting off, seems to run fine. Vent is not clogged either.

The problem could be with the thermostats...or maybe the motor.
It would be wise to check those out first.
The thermostats are normally located in the air tube from the blower to the drum, this is where the heating coil in normally located also.
Hope this helps

Dryer stops, restarts minutes later


It seems like clogged vent problem but as I always say The best method is to do your home work and you must do total trouble shooting procedure and replace defective parts if necessary and
Best way is visual check and check for any faulty component and parts and check all thermostats and sensors and look for clogged vent or any damaged or rusty or cracked components and use step by step deduction method for trouble shooting

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!!!

Dryer keeps shutting off


If it's shutting off while it's running, it's probably the thermal overload fuse tripping and cutting off the power. This could be caused by a number of things, so if you can post back with the following information, I can assist you further more easily.

1. Your brand and model of dryer
2. Does the dryer turn back on quickly or do you have to wait about 15-30 minutes?
3. Is it making any unusual noises?

Thank you.

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.

Dryer overheats and shuts off- vents have been cleaned and button on back has not reset


Common problem.
You probably need to clean
your dryer vent. Dryer vents
should be cleaned every couple of years to
prevent them from being clogged with lint. You can check the air-flow by going outside where the vents terminate. What's probably happening is on sensor dry, there's a moister sensor that tells the machine to shut off when there's no moister. The hot is is being pushed back into the dryer and confusing the sensor. That's why it's working on timer dryer because that option bypasses the moisture sensor.

I'm pretty sure that's it. Good luck.

Kenmore 70 series dryer shuts off and won't restart


IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE MOTOR IS OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING ITSELF OFF. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY THING ON THE DRYER THAT WOULD SHUT IT OFF AND NOT ALLOW IT TO START AGAIN RIGHT AWAY, BUT LET IT START AFTER A WHILE. MAKE SURE THE MOTOR TURNS FREELY. IT SHOULD NOT DRAG OR HUMM WHEN TRYING TO START.

Dryer is not drying clothes


chances are not na problem with dryer, runs for a bout a min and shuts off sounds normal for an empty dryer, the problem is probably where the exhaust leaves the roof, .roof vents have installed from factory a screen to prevent things from entering when not in use. problem is that screen clogs with moist lint and prevents proper air flow. go up and check that vent remove screen you should be fine
