Dryer LG 1100 shuts off after a few minutes. If you set it for 54 minutes, you check if after 5 minutes it reads 14 minthen in 5 minutes it starts cooling down. The clothes are still wet.

Clean your lint filter, and clean the entire line vent from the dryer to the outside export port, also look inside the dryer vent hook up for obstructions and remove any lint. Keeping these parts lint free will save you energy and also drying time and maintenance repairs. My dryer is 18 years old.

Dryer turns on then stops in 5 seconds and flashes F40 code. shuts down

Check lint filter, check vent outlet at dryer, and continue on through vent checking for lint to the exit area of the vent. Keeping the vent lint free saves energy and reduces drying time.

Keeps shutting down and takes several trys to start again only to shut down later

If the computer is overheating it will shut down to save the hardware from heat damage, the temp is pre set. It may get hot, due to air flow in a minute or and hour. What does the "screen comes up says problem " say? Check the fan and vents for dust and clean, improve air flow around bottom vents and side vents. Perhaps a Laptop Cooler? When the computer shuts down unepectedly, the computer see it as a crash and will load in that option screen. Run a 'Check Disk" on the OS drive buy opening computer in start menu, right click the drive with the OS (C), open properties, Tools, Check now, choose all options, follow instructions, reboot.

Dryer was running then stopped

Some driers turn off when overheated. Wait for your drier to cool down and try again. You may need to clear the vent tube which accumulates lint not caught by the drier's lint catch.
An old dryer may be drawing too much power and may have tripped the breaker. Go to your breaker box and look for a switch that is not facing the same way as the others. Push it back in position.
A digitally controlled dryer may freeze like a computer. Try unplugging the machine for 1 minute, plug back in and try again.

My only thought is to look at the back of the drier. Check the hose coming out the back to the out side vent, and then run the drier with out the hose for a few moments. See if you have air moving then, if you have no air moving with out the hose attached. Your driers fan blades are ether clogged with lint or they have broken off some how.

GE Dryer shuts off w/ blinking and beeping

I just fixed that problem with mine. I tried many, many things. Final solution was vacumming out the holes in the rear of the drier. (Prior to that, I removed the lint filter and holder, checked all connections and vacummed out that area. I unplugged the vent hose to confirm there was no cluggs. I found resetting the breaker would work for about a half hour.) Just vacum out the rear of the dry. Not only will the beeping stop, but as an added bonus, you cloths will dry much faster!!!

If wet link dries onto sensors over a period of time then the lint will trip sensors prematurely. Clean surface of all sensors. Check sensors in heater housing and in fan housing.

Electric dryer shutting off

most likely cause is the air duct is blocked with lint, some always gets past the screen and builts up in the exhaoust line. not enough air flow, the air gets hotter than normal and trips the over temperature cutout.
for most dryers
clear the fan, and exhaust ducting all the way to the wall, and the outside vent hood, of lint
