Question about Dryers
This problem is frequently caused by poor airflow. Make sure your lint screen and vent pipe are clear. Take the vent pipe off of the dryer and check that there's a good airflow from the machine itself. If there's little air there, it's possible the fan has come loose on its shaft. If the dryer sounds unusually noisy (loud, rumbling noises when it's running, for instance) this is a likely cause. Replacing the fan is something you can do yourself if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some patience.
Without enough airflow, heat builds up and the safety thermostat shuts off the heat. Get the air moving and it usually solves the trouble. If it doesn't help this time around, post a follow-up. Thanks for using Fixya!
