Dryer quit running in mid cycle

Stopped dryer to take something out. Attempted to re-start dryer ... will not start. Everything lights up proper, but when you press start, it beeps once and the "Sensing Lights" begins to blink. This all the machine will do. Have unplugged and cycled the breaker to no effect.

Re: Dryer quit running in mid cycle

It's the thermal fuse and it's easy to install if you have a front loader just take the kick panel off in front, make sure you remove the lint filter and the cover that goes up to the lint collector and you will see the thermal fuse. Make sure you unplug before doing this. Take the two screws out of the bottom of kick panel and than use a putty knife and push down and the panel will come right off. Hope this helps you out.

My dryer has been difficult to start lately especially if stopped mid cycle. The lights are all on but it won't start up. Today I only used it 2 times and it was very difficult to start after pressing many...

You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.

It stopped warning, and wouldn't start again.

Unplug your dryer for ten min. This will reset the circuit board and reboot the system. Sometime small power surges can disrupt the curcuit and cause the unit to get confused. Rebooting usually will fix this type of problem with surges.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Sounds like you might need a new motor.
