Use an amp meter check the amp draw of the motor if in check its possible the overload is bad since i couldn't buy a replacement overload i removed mine after seeing amp draw was fine. But i never use my dryer unless i am home and i would not recommend this to just anyone. also if the idler wheels are not moving free or anything is causing excess drag on the drum this will also cause the problem and blow out all lint with an air hose or canned air.

Started a quick was cycle to test washer without cloths. It agitates for about 10 seconds, stops for 5 seconds and agitates for 10 seconds again. The light array is suggesting it is going from wash.


new washers usualy start a brief agitate then locks the door and then starts watering again. depending on washer model it can do this a couple times to evenly soak the clothes at the start of a wash cycle. it is advised to not run full cycle in the washing machine with no clothes for it can damage the unit.

Your dryer belt is loose, you may just have to open the dryer and reset the band, but most likely you will need to order a replacement set from whirlpool.

Dryer overheats, stops mid-cycle


Hi, Will the dryer restart right away? Sounds like a motor going bad. With a model #, I can get you part#s if you need them. Is this a whirlpool brand?
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet


On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
