Could be an overheated motor, but always clean venting and make sure it is under 20' with fewer than 4 elbows. mat'l should be metal. filter housing sometimes get clogged also, look inside and remove any lint build-up. there should be very strong flow of air out vent with hose removed.

Our dryer heats for awhile, then shuts off. If we let it cool down,it will turn back on for awhile., then get hot, then turn off again


Check to make sure vent/air flow is not restricted.
Try to start dryer soon after it stops. If it hums and does not start, motor is cutting out.
If you touch the motor you will find it to be 'very hot' Touch only for 3-4 seconds.

most likely its gonna be your coil kit, but it could also be ur gas valve,but the gas valve is not common. I would go with the silinoid coil kit first, its much cheaper too

It starts out fine but shuts itself off after only a few minutes.


It appears that you don't have air movement through the machine. Check the vent hose and outside fixture for lint build-up. Vacuum the machine's inside pipe and underneath the lint filter. Wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits (which will block air flow). Check for airflow outside when the dryer runs. Hope this helps!

Dryer shut off during cycle, unable to restart, does not start when pushing knob.


sounds like your blower is either clog, or the exhaust duct is clog with lint. also pull the front face off and clean out the location where the filter sits, they become clog over time and no ones cleans there. Your over heat protection circiut shuts down the dryer when it cannot exhaust enough air.

Maytag pyet244ayw---the dryer would not turn off.it had to be manually shut off. now, it turned off during a drying cycle. i can hear a whining sound when i tried to restart it.


Could be the belt.
Disconnect power.
Using a putty knife, slide it under the top and front panel of the dryer. There is one clip near each front corner. Pull up on the top panel while depressing the clips.
With the top up, you can see the drum and the belt should be around it and tight. You should be able to rotate the drum with your hand with some resistance. If the belt is not present then it is probably broken and under the drum. If this is the case, the whining you hear is the motor turning under no load.
Please post if this is the problem or if other to assist others with a siimular problem.

The Dryer stopped and will not start again


Just had a similar problem with our Maytag Electric Dryer. The dryer shut off mid-cycle and wouldn't start again, but the timer kept running. We purchased a "Thermal fuse replacement kit" at a local appliance parts store for $38 and replaced the fuse ourselves. The dryer is running great! Here's a couple of website links that were helpful in figuring out out how to replace the fuse: http://www.partselect.com/repair.aspx?appliance=dryer&part=replace-thermal-fuse

Hope this helps!

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.
