Question about Dryers
Hello- The dryer may be shutting down because it senses low air flow or too much heat build-up. I would check the venting behind the dryer and make sure the flexible duct is not crimped or crushed, if it is remove it and replace (you can get this at most hardware stores). If that looks ok turn the dryer on and go outside to where the vent exits the house, the air flow should be strong. If you feel little air flow you may need to have a duct cleaning service out to get the lint build-up out, especially if the duct runs through the wall a long distance and makes many turns. You can also test if this is the issue by removing the flexible vent from the back of the dryer and running it; be aware you will get some lint in the room. If it is still shutting down you should have someone out to diagnose it, there may be a thermostat issue. Hope this helps, best regards.
