Where is thermostat located on ge dryer,starts hot then it gets cool


Dryer possibly overheating due to plugged vent. They will go into a safe mode and shutdown the heater if not enough airflow. Results in starting hot but ending with a cold load of clothes! Check the belt to ensure the dryer fan is working and that the drum is properly rotating. If OK and the vent is clear then check the thermostat. Depengin on the type (Gas vs electric) there are a number of limit thermostats as well as a main thermostat. Likely you have a a limit switch kicking in to shut off the heater. Normally from lack of airflow (plugged vent, fan broken, etc...) Once unit cools down will start back up but shut down again once the heater comes on. Also check to see if the heating element is shorted to the side of the metal case. Will heat up and be intermittent.

Lg dryer is overheating blowing the thermal fuse


you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.
a simple verification can be performed by disconnecting the vent hose from the dryer and see if this solves the problem.

My Kenmore Dryer, Mdl #86681800 won't start when hot


The most likely reason it that the electric motor is failing; the thermal protector on the motor is resetting after the motor cools down. The buzzing is due to a locked rotor in the motor while it is overheated.

Another much less likely possibility is that there is excessive drag on the drum causing the motor to overheat because it is working too hard spinning the drum. Excess drag is due to worn rollers, etc.

Try rotating the drum in the CORRECT direction by hand and see if it seems really hard to rotate. You can try this on a friend or relatives machine to see how much drag is normal.

To determine which way is the correct rotation, just start the dryer, open the door and look fast! To test, just turn it in the same direction as it was rotating before it stopped.

After 6 loads of clothes dryer will not start for the 7th load.after waiting for approx. 60 mins. dryer starts up and functions as normal


After 6 loads...yeh, well the dryer is obviosly overheating. It takes awhile to cool down, and then will operate as normal again.
When it overheats, the thermostat activates, and stops the dryer from running until it cools down.
But why does it overheat? Have you been cleaning the lint filter after every load, as recommended? If not, this can cause the problem because of restricted airflow. Have you been overloading the dryer? Again, this can cause overheating.
Something to check; when the dryer has normal load, try carefully rotating the drum by hand, in its normal direction of rotation. If it is very stiff to turn, or scraping, then that can cause this problem also. Maybe a bearing problem can cause the stiffness or scraping. I hope its not the problem.
Let me know how it goes please.

Clothes Dryer Break Down


Check your dryer vent and lint collection area for clogs, make sure there is no kinks in the dryer hose and the one way vent outside your house is not blocked. Your dryer is overheating and shutting down due to a thermal fuse that is on a timer and takes while to reset.

Whirlpool dryer


If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

Wont start up.


Sounds like the motor is failing. The main cause of failure is overheating due to clooged venting. Is the dryer taking more than 60 mins to dry?? If so then the vent is clogged. Its likely too that the motor is covered with lint and not being able to properly dissipate its own heat, you could clean it and see if it helps but usually once they are shutting down overheated (the burning smell is the motors' internal windings being very hot) they need replacement.
