Dumb question, but have to ask. Dryer runs perfectly for 10 minutes on any setting. Then continues to run with no heat and timer dial stops rotating. Has a brand new ignitor and all sensors were tested to your helpful responses to others questions. Unit is only 3 years old. Thanks for any help.
ANSWER Hello Scott,
The only dumb questions are the ones not asked. This actually sounds like a ducting issue. If the duct is crimped off, excessively long and complicated, or the flexible stuff wadded up behind the unit, the heat, lint, and moisture will be forced to blow past the felt drum seals right back into the cabinet of the unit and will in turn open the thermostats. The dryer duct is the most neglected part of the home and the most denied as the cause of an issue with the dryer. Let us know if we can assist you further.
