    Same problem. Checked all electric connections and breaker. Dryer is just dead. This happened after pulling it out and removing clothing and items that had fallen behind it. It was working prior to this. After cleaning and moving it back it ran for part of a cycle and quit.

My john deere push mower starts fine mows for 10 min quits wont start so I took the the gas cap off looked at it put it back on push the prime bulb 1 time it started ran for 10 min quit did the gas cap...

I'm not sure of the model number of your mower or engine to know the fuel and carburetor set up. I do have one easy thing to try though as it sounds as if a vacume is building up in the tank. Try putting a half of tank of gas in it, leave the gas cap off, and see if it continues as it was or if it runs ok. If this stops the issue your cap vent is pluged up. I hope this helps

Doesnt dry very well. takes about two days for clothes to dry completely.

If your drier is getting warm. You need to check the vent hose and the vent to the outside for a restriction. If the vent hose is stopped up, she will not dry proper, the hot moist air can not get out of the drum and just keeps it all inside. Now if is not getting hot, you have an electrical problem with the heater coils, that may take a tech. to come out and fix for you. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

My drier gets warm but not hot???whats wrong....I check exhaust system cleaned it and vent system too. power is normal I put it on express drying too and warm not hot?

Most electric driers have two heater coils, inside that provide heat to dry the cloths. Wires like in a light bulb only bigger. I suspect one of these coils is burnt out and thats why it is only getting warm not hot. Also be sure to remove the hose from the back of the drier and check for a restriction there.

Drier runs normally but clothes dont dry - have already cleaned out the vent hose

Check the heater element and thermal fuses for continuety (2)
If the vent hose was clogged up it will be the thermal fuses, always do both together even if only one was bad.

My dryer gets hot but does not dry efficiently. Clothes are still very damp after more than 1.5 hours. I noticed that the lint trap is not really gathering any lint.

your problem might be in the actual vent to the outside. If the vent to the outside from the drier has a clog and will need to be cleaned. Without the proper ventallation the clothes will not dry. I suggest pulling the drier out and removeing the vent hose that connects to the outside and clean it. Once this is done you shouldn't have any problems

Hope this helped

Whirlpool gas dryer LGR6636PWO heats for appro. 5 minutes & quits heating but still runs.

First check the exhaust vent and connecting vent material for a clog. If vent is OK,replace the gas valve coils.

Dryer tumbles, trake long time to dry or partly

Check the hose at the rear of the drier, if the hose is restricted even to the vent outside she will not move the air to dry your clothes. Also check the filter and down inside the filter area. Clean it out.

My drier is a Maytag, it is not heating up the way it should be.

There is a chamber that the air blows down before hitting the vent pipe. It may need to be cleaned. But you want to make sure when you push your dryer back, that the vent doesn't kink. good luck. Overall you drier works, your just having a venting issue.
