Overheating dryer If I have only a couple items in the dryer it cycles the coil on and off but if I put in more clothes it just burns up.

    Thanks but I give up!!! I replaced the cycle thermostat and it still does not cycle with 2 towels and a t-shirt in it. I am going to have to buy a new one as this impacts life way to much over a piece of junk like a dryer. I have tried everything every night for a week and can no longer take the heat. This dryer is trying to burn down my house but I am pulling the cord!!!

Sounds like it is over-heating with a few items in it has more air-space in it with more items it has less air-space i would replace your thermostats this will re-solve your problem some stats go down but some just go faulty and its the faulty ones that are the problem m8

Hello: I have a tenant who is having problems with a GE Spacemaker washer/dryer -Stylemaster # is 622866-A. Here is how she describes the problem: seems as though the washer isn't functioning...

If a spin and drain problem you can pull the front off to see if perhaps a small item (ie. sock or like size item) is stuck between basket and tub or in the drain hose? If it is a wash time problem that would be another direction.

Dryer flame turns off after a couple of minutes leaves clothes damp

HI, this is the result of a faulty set of gas valve coils.(black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

There are also a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance as well. Replace the defective thermostat.

Admiral Dryer: 5 cycle 3 temperature electric

Unplug Dryer
Remove back (many screws)
Clean lint from interior & Vent Chute
check for breakage & parts on dryer floor
check for burn damage (wires burned off or char)
if no burn or char:
could be the "Dryer Coil" itself broke or
a "Snap Disc" usually mounted on the coil housing.
Very Serious!!!! Replace only!!!! Do not ever bypass!!!!
Stay clear of dryer for test start
Be ready to shut it down fast in case of problems
Always replace back & vent chute
Good luck,

Dryer makes small holes (cigarette burn size) on clothes

Get a new dryer. Old ones tend to tear-up clothes and burn holes.

LG Gas dryer doesn't dry clothes in one cycle

Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.
