Re: Diagnostics and Repair Details
Check your door switch first. You should hear a click when you push it in and light should turn off.. If it clicks it is probably ok. If you need to know how to replace it or if it is ok, please reply back with model number so I can give you more detailed directions in troubleshooting.

Dear Barry, Try 2 things. One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine. If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes. You can tell by hand-wringing them. You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer. Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer. If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow. Be blessed.
if you are using the sensor drying cyle this could cause the unit to stop. it will detect the most dry clothing first usually light clothes that dry faster.if not and you are useing timed dry the most likely cause is a faluty timer,or a thermostat sesnor is going bad and turnoing off the dryer before the clothes are dry
