There is a safety switch in the door that shuts dryer off when door is open. If there is more to your problem let me know. From what you have stated there is no problem.

Ok check the belt. if broken then make sure the drum turns freel by hand before replacing the bely. Usually dryers wont heat if the motor doesnt go so perhaps the motor is running without a belt. have a look see. Without an inspection its dificult to pin point Good luck

Runs for a while than shuts off if i take the back off it doesn't shut off.


Usualy this is caused by poor airflow through your dryer. Remove the lint filter and check for a lint build-up near the bottom of your lint filter. If you see a lint build up use a vacuum crevice tool and something long like a fly swatter to loosen the lint as you vacuum. Also check the dryer vent tubing and the outside vent flapper for obstructions. What is happening is your dryer is heating up until the high temp limit protection rhermostat shuts off the heating element.

What I just mentioned is apparently not your problem. You said that your dryer runs then shuts off completely. Check to see if the motor is easily roated by hand with the belt installed. If it is difficult to rotate there is a bearing problem somewhere causing heat to build up in your motor until the thermal overload shuts off the motor. There is a drive belt idler near the motor that can also cause excessive drag on the belt if the bearing has failed. The last thing to check would be the drum rollers located in the groved area on the outside of the rear of your dryer drum. If these have stopped turning they act like a drum brake and can also cause the same symptoms. Removing the back panel allows the chassis to shift enough for the drum to ride lighter on the drum roller even though it may not be turing it is enough for the dryer drum to skid / slide on top of the stuck drum roller yet not shut off.. Hope this helps and good luck. I can help with access issues need be here.

One question I have is does your dryer door open and close properly? Some times a bad door seal or door catch can cause the same symptoms. Open and close the door and losten for a switch click as the door opens or closes not far from the closed position.

Dryer drum is turning, but not drying the clothes. When I open the door, there is heat. Lint has been cleaned out


Check where the dryer vent comes out and make sure that there is a good amount of air coming out. If the fan is blowing, the drum is turning, and there is heat, the likely thing is that the dryer vent is partially blocked. Check the pipe leading out. Bird's nests are not uncommon. The only other thing I can think of is that the door catch is wearing out and the door is popping open, shutting the dryer off mid-cycle. Some dryers will continue to run the timer if the cycle is interrupted and it will appear that the dryer ran its full cycle, but in reality it shut off soon after it started.

Won't shut off unless the door is opened


Usually the only thing that will stop the dryer is to open the door or turn the timer to the off position.

Wont start door shut tight can heat timer drum lite on when door open


If you can hear the motor running with door is closed and the dryer is turned on, the the belt that turns the drum is likely off the drum or broken.

If you cannot hear the anything when the door is closed and the dryer is turned on, then the door switch is likely defective.

The other more unlikely causes are either the Timer or Switch that starts the dryer is defective.

Drum runs continuously


Sounds like you have a shorted relay in the door switch. If you know a good electrician or repair man I'd give them a call.
