Dryer shuts off and will not handle a full load. When i go to restart it, i have to wait 15 mins. then it will restart. Sounds like motor is whining at the start of the load, even for light loads. Suggestions?

My dryer keeps shutting off after about 10-15 mins. It starts make a noise likes it's slowing down just before it shuts off. If I try to push the knob back in to restart. It will make a buzzing noise. If I...


Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

Dryer cuts off before clothes are dry.


Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series shutting down. overheat?


Your motor is very likely overheating and needs replacement. A simple test is the motor will be so hot you cannot even touch it. Hope this helps!

Dryer shuts down in the middle of the cycle before the timer goes off. if you try to restart it will not. wait 15 minutes or so and it starts right back up and finishes drying the load.


Probably the motor is getting too hot and the thermal overload switch is shutting it down.Usually means bad motor or dirty motor. You'll have to take it apart to see. Model # and Brand would help.
