That is usually a sign of a bad motor. Can you immediately restart or do you have to wait a while?

    If it just shuts down and you can restart immediately it is not the motor. It could be anything bad time or a loose wire somewhere. Do you have any other symptoms?

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 is tumbling but no heat - when I reset it shuts off after about 10 min and the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights are all flashing.


Janet McDonald,

I understand that you are having trouble with your dryer not heating and not running a full cycle and shutting off with the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights flashing. What I suggest is to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle. If it does not complete the cycle and shuts off with the lights flashing, I suggest to either contact the manufacturer or a local appliance technician. This way you will be able to locate the cause of this issue and have it resolved.

-Best Regards-

My kenmore dryer runs for 5 minutes and shuts off. I have replaced the door switch and ran the dryer with the vent hose detached. Still not working


Try this: Find the sensing bars and clean em with 409 or windex. They may be coated with stuff from dryer sheets. This builds up a moisture barrier. The machine does not FEEL the wetness from the clothes and assumes they are dry.So it shuts down after 5 minutes. Let me know.

Dryer shot off


Try cleaning off the moisture sensor bars. (two 1/4 inch wide, about 5 inch long metal strips about an inch apart inside the dryer, near the lint trap.) These strips can get coated, often times from waxy residue from fabric softener sheets, and then no moisture is detected, so the dryer thinks clothes are dry, and after a short (5 minutes) cool down, it shuts off. If you use the manual / time dry, dryer should work fine even if the sensors are coated.

I have a Fisher & Paykel DG08 gas dryer that will get hot and shut down after 5 minutes. It will not start if you try hitting the start button right away, but will if you wait a few minutes. It did...


The thermal overload is bad and will need to be replaced,This is there to prvent overheating and when it fails and overheating happens,a secondary overload kicks in to prevent a fire.

Dryer shuts off after 15 minutes and needs to cool down then will start again and the cylec continues!!On, off,on, off.


The problem is more likely a high temp limit switch. I don't have a schematic of your dryer, but one should be included somewhere on the dryer. You have to use a voltmeter to test the components in the circuit. The thermostat controls the heat temp, you may want to start there

Dryer problem


What you're describing sounds like the "wrinkle free" function of the timer. If it's happening at the end of a dry cycle, this is perfectly normal. If it's happening at the start of a dry cycle, then the timer is broken and will need replaced.
