My dryer has the following symptoms. Runds for a few minutes thens turns off.

What I did....took the back off, removed all parts connected to wires except for the part connected to the element. Had them all tested at the applicance shop. All passed. Blew out dryer vent hose with leaf blower. Drums turns and dryer heats up.

Dryer will run in fluff mode. Turns off after 5 minutes oh high heat.

Cleaned out the back side...a little lint...nothing major.

Blew out dryer vent hose....no issues.

___________________________________________

Washed a load....put them in the dryer.....turned on high heat....turned off by itself after 5 minutes. Switched to other modes of operation and dryer worked. Went back to high heat....started dryer.....be running for 30 minutes...

What happaned? I am clueless on what I did to fix this.

 

Please advise.

 

Chuck

have you cleaned the lint off of the motor? sounds like the motor is over heating in the high heat mode from lint or the motor could also be starting to go bad. when it failed in high heat previously could you immediately restart the dryer or did you have to wait a few minutes?

did not clean anything off the motor. It was stopping about about 5 minutes of running. I am on my second load of drying currently with no stopping.

check the power cord connections and make sure they are good and snug. If it fails again lets us know.
