Shuts off too soon when the clothes are still wet


Make sure the door does not come open while running.

If it turns off only during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor may have failed.

If it turns off during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat has most likely failed and the high limit thermostat turns the machine off when it gets too hot. After the machine cools down, it will start until it heats up and turns off again.

My dryer will run for about 20 minutes and then shut itself off. I cannot turn it back on for at least an hour as the 'done' buzzer will buzz and the dryer will not turn back on. Does anyone have any...


If it happens during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor could be faulty.

If it happens during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat may be faulty. A faulty operating thermostat can fail to turn the heaters off and allow the dryer to get too hot. When this happens, the high limit thermostat will turn off the machine. After it cools down, it will start again.

Dryer runs & heats,but after 1 or2 cycles it will not start,the start button will just buzz. I ran it for 20 minutes without anything in it.when i shut it off it would not start again. I let it sit for...


The high limit just shuts off the heating element, so that wouldn't determine if the dryer runs or not. normally if the dryer wont turn on after you have run it then will restart after it has been off for a while it usually means that the motor is overheating and what is happenning is the motor has a limit switch on it that shuts the motor off when it gets too hot. It is a resettable switch, so when the motor cools down it will restart. The only way that the motor overheats that much is either a bad motor or something causing enough drag on the motor to cause it to overheat but normally if something is causing drag on the motor, such as a bad roller,blower wheel ect., the belt ususally takes a dive too. All that to answer your original question about the high limit, most likely not.

Blinking AD


AD is auto dry you may need to clean the sensor or you may have a fauilty one ...Auto Dry Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at the selected temperature to the desired dryness level. The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics. The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5 minutes, then the outside of the display will light up in a circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically being determined by the sensors. When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be displayed. Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time. For cycle selection turn the knob on the front of the dryer control panel. The light will illuminate next to the cycle selected. The following is a brief description for what cycles should be chosen for certain items and materials to be dried.

My dryer used to shut off before the clothes are dry - now it wont start at all


Ok, the light will not come on if the door pressure swicth is damaged and, the dryer will not start if this switch is damaged as well. replace the door pressure switch asap.

Ok, concerning the interuppted drying cycle due to high heat, this can be cuased by two issue. It coudl be a venalation issue. if the dryers vent duct and exuast hoses are clogged, thsi will cuased the element to reach unsafe tempreturs, in return, tripping the high limit thermostsat and shutting the dryer off in the middle of the load cycle.

Another problme spot woul dbe a fualty high limit thermaostae. Although this is highly unlikey, this coudl be your issue.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.


Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
