Just change the thermistor, no need to change the thermal fuse as thats good or it wouldn't start at all.

Here is the thermistor for your model:

Yes, if the thermistor doesn't fix it, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund, then it would be a good idea to get that service smart contract that Sears offers.

did you clean the LINT filter? try vacuuming the lint trap area. wet or damp lint can get built up in the lint trap area. it is good to regularly clean the area as it is a Major fire hazard.

Dryer runs for about 20 min. then shuts off will start after it cools down and run again for another 20 min.


The only thing that can be is a bad motor. Both the run and start windings are going at the same time. Start windings are not dropping out.

Whirlpool 6 cycle dryer keeps shutting off. it will start back up and run, sometimes it will finish the load and most times it will shut back off in 5 to 20 min.


vent is restricted, disconnect vent tube run dryer. Clean out your restricted vent tube with a leaf blower and make sure it is not kinked or too long, this should help Tim:

My sears dryer will shot off when iy gets hot,going through its cycle. If i let it cool down for about 10 mins. I can restart and continue for another 20 mins before it shuts down again


Take the exhaust vent off the rear and try it.
If it runs OK,repair the vent blockage/restriction.
If it does not run OK,replace the motor.

Does it shut down completely? If it does, and the timer ceases turning, your problem may be a blocked vent pipe or Lint buildup.Your high limit switch is designed to kill power to your heater coils and sometimes the motor in case of overheat.

Changed thermal fuse and cleaned out drier. it ran good for about 20 minutes and then shut down again. what could be the problem


changing the thermal fuse was a good idea but if the dryer runs for 20 min. then shuts off that is generally the motor going into thermal overload....thus meaning you would need a new motor.
