The motor is cutting out on over temperature. Either the motor is covered in lint: or the capacitor is faulty: or not enough ventelation comming in through the intake. If all is clear and clean, replace the motor.

Dryer heats and then shuts off


know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. If you have to wait for it to cool down before it will start again, this is an indication of the motor overheating and shutting off on the motor thermal overload. This can be caused by the motor being covered in lint or a low voltage supply to the motor. Check and clean the motor of lint and see if it runs normally.

Dryer will heat and spin. After a few minutes it stops. Try to push to start button and nothing happens. I wait about 20 minutes and it will start again. What is the problem ?


Mine was doing the same. I got a bit of a rattle noise in the timer when I'd try to restart it though. First I unplugged the dryer, I took the control head off, then I took the timer out, and opened it up. Found that 2 of the copper contacts were covered in black soot and had a little corrosion on them. I took some fine grit sandpaper and sanded the contact only till they were smooth and clean. I only did this a short while ago but seems to be working so far. It hasn't prematurely shut off and the timer is turning again.
