Our dryer starts up and runs for a while (15-25mins) then a sound develops and the dryers stops working. It appears that whenever it cools down it will run again. On start up sometimes a strange sound is...


You definitely have a motor issue starting to develop. The motor bearings will usually allow the motor to run initially, but start to get loud after they heat up and eventually bind causing the motor to stop. The motor has a thermal switch on the side that will shut the motor off if it gets too hot, and will re-set after about 15 or 20 minutes.
The motors for this style dryer (I can't look up the exact part as I need the complete model # off your machine's model tag) are usually about $140-$160.
If you would like to get the motor and install it yourself, let me know and I can provide you walk-through directions on replacement of the part.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle


Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore 80 series dryer stoping after running for 10 to 15 minute


Start any cycle. Dryer runs for 10 to 15 minutes, then stops before cycle is complete. Start again, stops again in 10 to 15 minutes.
