Question about Dryers

Dryer stops shortly after being started

After turning my dryer on it cuts out after less than a minute and the PAU light blinks.  It will go on again but will do the same thing.

Dryer runs for a few minutes then stops and all the lights blink


when dryer motors start going bad, this is one sign that it is time to re-place motor. They come on and then cut off. Also, please check your ventilation system ( hole in wall to wherever it goes outside) to make sure that it is NOT clogged up with lint or a birds nest. The hot air and lint that the dryer creates, cannot be restricted from exiting the dryer for it may also cause the motor to get too hot and cut off. Motor has a safety cut off fuse to shut unit down when it is getting too hot. MAKE SURE that dryer is properly installed away from wall with proper vent hose.

Leq2152ee1 dryer does dry but keeps stopping if put on any setting over 15 min. Dryer stops single beep and top four lights blink.


MAY BE BAD MOTOR WITH BAD WINDINGS USUALLY STOPS AFTER 20 MINUTES OF USE? OR HEATING ELEMENT IS OVERHEATING? DUE TO BAD VENTING? THERMAL CUT OFF KEEPS SHUTTING IT DOWN?

Runs for little while then stops and has the code PAU on the display. I tried unplugging the cord, I reset the circuit breaker. Still the same and now it won't even start.


Try taking the control board out and check for burned off traces. Solder back those points and it should work again. Just did it to mine and now it runs again. Still flashes PAU though.

I'm using a Bosch Axxis dryer for the first time. The dryer seems to run for a minute, cut out for a minute, run again, cut out again etc. Is this normal? I'm renting this place for a month and there are...


Hi,

Werlcome to FixYa.

That is indeed perfectly normal. It is actually changing direction each time it stops and starts. That`s how those particular Bosch operate.

On another note, if you operate the unit on the "auto dry" cycles without enough items or extremely light weight materials in it, the dryer will stop since it cannot "sense" the garments.

Otherwise it`s all good !

Good luck.

I have a Frigidaire gas dryer and it ingites and works but with in a minutes the gas is cut off and never ingites back.


On your gas valve , there are 2 coils . Replace both as they come together . When they get warm due to electricity going thru them , one of them will open ( short ) and not let gas come thru until it's cooled down . Turning the dryer back on later , it will work for a short time , then stop heating again until the dryer is cooled back down. Replaceing these coils will solve your problem .

When i turn the dryer on the burner will light then goes off after a minute or less


Hello, This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike
