Our dryer will not stay running, it stops about every 2 minutes and needs to be restarted. But it starts again with a single push of the button, only to stop again in a few minute.

When pushing the start button the dryer will come on for about 10 minutes and then stop. Then sometimes it doesnt come on at all


If it starts right back up after stopping there is an electrical problem maybe at the motor start switch. If you have to wait for an hour before it will start again then the problem might be that the motor needs to be cleaned of a lint build up.

Dryer stops running shortly into cycle. When button is pushed to restart, dryer groans. Holding button may get the unit going again - but it makes noise running and stops again soon. Bad motor? Bad...


Sounds like start winding switch. I would replace whole motor assembly. Try on ebay for a used one that looks newer. Used motors will save you some serious money.

Runs for 2 mins. then stops, push reset button & will run for 2 minutes & stops again


How long have you had the dryer? It sounds like it is overheating, and the most likely cause is accumulated lint. You can check this by removing the round plastic covers on either side panel. Just rotate them and they will pop out. Clean out any lint you see in the air channels and replace the covers.

Also check your ducting - it may be partially or fully blocked by something. You could test this by disconnecting the ducting, then running the dryer to see if it still shuts off. (Prepare for some loose lint flying out in this event.)

It sounds as if you have a defective drive motor.  After the motor runs for a while and heats up, the internal thermal switch cuts it off before it gets too hot and becomes a hazard.  Once the motor cools down and the thermal switch makes up again, it will run and then repeat this process.

Whirlpool dryer (electric)


did the button click when you pressed it when it worked fine, if it doesn't click now then you need a new button switch, which should be fairly cheap and fairly easy to replace yourself with care if the button should be pressed to start without normally clicking and needs to be pressed to restart each time you open the door then the start relay could be faulty, sound complicated but not the same fault hope i have been of some help, if so please rate me

Dryer runs for 5 minutes then stops


look in the vent line for a small disk shaped overload with two wires coming out of it. it may be bad. also check for a lint build-up in the exhaust line out of the blower. check the damper outlet going out of the house for a build-up of lint.
