Dryer wont start


Is this a gas or electric dryer; helpful to know. The motor is not starting consistently? Focus should be on the motor and starting circuit. Possible bad connection, they need to be clean. Is there a starting relay? If a motor relay fails to disengage the start winding then the motor will overheat. Motor and motor circuit matches the symptoms described.

Dryer will heat but seems to overheat and shut off.


If that is the style with the small heater in back up top the blower wheel is probably slipping.

DV350AEP Samsung Dryer starts then stops after a few minutes


Sounds like you may need to take the whole dryer apart and check for lint build-up, or for a "worn-out "overheat thermostat switch" in the back or the bottom of the machine.
There are from 3 to 6 in most machines.
These parts, often the size of a quarter or half-dollar, usually have 2 wires hooked to them, and will shut off your dryer if it overheats (to prevent a fire).
These switches will require a testing instreument to check them.
Be blessed.

Kenmore elite he3 takes wat to long to dry cloths


If your dryer is STILL heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and/or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat failure.

The dryer heats, the drum turms, hot air circulates, but the clothes don't dry


If you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some advice on things to check before assuming you have a malfunction with the dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If the dryer can't exhaust properly, the moisture is retained in the dryer drum and your clothes stay wet, longer. A dryer in a clogged or poorply ventilated state can also cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This can also become a fire hazard if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call.

If you still have problems, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
