Re: Dryer stops running

Sounds like a thermal breakdown in the motor.

My lg 2240 clean filter light blinks even though the filter is clean. when started it runs for 3 to 4 seconds then shuts off. if you wait for about a minute it will start again then shut off after 3 to 4...

This problem usually is caused by a restricted or blocked vent. The filter itself can be clean, but the duct work in the dryer after the filter, or the vent hose attached to the dryer, or the exhaust door attached to that hose is either restricted, plugged or blocked. Lint likes to build up in all areas the exhaust air goes, so check them all. The dryer has a sensor that will shut the dryer off if there is a restriction. Cleaning all of the duct work, from the filter all the way to where it exhausts outside, will usually solve this problem. An easy way to check is to unhook the exhaust hose from the dryer and run it. Does it keep running now? It is possible the sensor in the dryer has gone bad, but that is rare. 99% of the time it is lint build up in the venting.

Have a maytag gas front loading dryer pyg2200AWW and the drum does not turn. From what I can read from the various posting, it seems that the belt has broken. Not sure how to tear this thing apart as most...

Have a performa dryer model #pyg2200aww the problem is it dries for the first 10 to 15 minutes and then it shuts off, if we wait for 20 minutes it starts again but then it shuts off again.

Dryer noise sounds like bearing out or a roller is bad model # 417-98702891

my dryer makes a funny noise about 10 to 15 min. into cycle. then shuts off. if you try to restart will not restart unless you hold start button down. once you let go will stop. wait about an hour and dryer will run for another 10- 15 min and start process over again.

Washer works good dryer will not start do not know why, looking for help?

This is either your start switch or your motor. Did it run for a while before shutting off after a few minutes before it stopped or did it just not start one day?

I own a kenmore top loading machine model number 110 10 amp 60 hertz 120 volts the machine gets power and runs but the big control knob that controls the diffrent cycles is running only about 20 seconds...

sounds like you should replace timer (big control) timer motor is part of timer. Is timer knob speeding thru cycle that fast or just start/stop.
110 is manufacturer code for whirlpool, number after decimal is model number. tech sheet avail inside console by unsnapping left and right console covers and removing hidden screw at front bottom corners, pull forward slightly then fold console back (hinged at rear top).

Begins to agitate but stops

The motor could be drawing too much current and causing the overload relay to trip. You will need to get an authorised techinician to test the motor.

Dryer starts to work and then stops working after a few minutes

doesn't usually happen so quick but may be a blockage in the air duct. take top off. if i remember right, duct runs across the back to the dryer fan. check for lint build-up. if poor air flow, an overheat stat will cut off the dryer

How can I fix my whirlpool thin twin washer?

It almost sounds like your motor is kicking out on overload. The fact that it starts agitating after the fill can rule out the pressure switch. You have installed a new timer so we should be able to rule that out. It's possible that your pump is binding, which is attached directly to your motor and causing it to overheat. To tell for sure you would have to check the motor to see if it's getting power when it cuts out. Check your terminal block where the power cord comes in to see if all connections are secure. Other possibilities could be the clutch and brake assy. With out being there too see the problem, this is where I would start.
