Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer will run for about 20 minutes and then shut itself off. I cannot turn it back on for at least an hour as the 'done' buzzer will buzz and the dryer will not turn back on. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

If it happens during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor could be faulty.

If it happens during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat may be faulty. A faulty operating thermostat can fail to turn the heaters off and allow the dryer to get too hot. When this happens, the high limit thermostat will turn off the machine. After it cools down, it will start again.

Dryer runs about 20 minutes on its cycle and cuts out. It will not turn back on without a 20 or so minute rest. I have checked the lint filter as well as the exhaust and they are both clear. Anyone have...


Check the exhaust path, where the lint trap goes. If there is lint in the path, it will retain heat that will shut the unit off. You can't just look and see, you will have to dismantle the path from dryer to final exhaust port to make sure it is all clear.
