The dryer will stop after a few minutes. Sometimes it will start back automatically. Now after several tries the clothes are still not drying properly.

My wife was using the dryer and it seemed to not get hot and the timer did not move. After awhile the heater did get hot but clothes did not dry in the normal amount of time i.e. it took 90 minutes instead of 50 minutes. I am inclined to believe one of the thermostats is going out but not sure which one it is. Any clue

Changed out the rear bearing, front drum support and pads. The first time I put it together the drum was binding and after it ran for a short time it stopped. I took it back apart and put it together this time the drum moves easily by hand but when I try to start it the relay on the front right of the controle panel clicks, the display beeps then says drying but the motor does not turn. Is there a fuse somewhere for the motor I might have blown? The motor spins freely by hand.

Latest Questions

Hi. My dryer has been working just fine. Maybe 30 min later, I started another load. The top got really hot and will not start now. I did the basic troubleshooting and internet research. I think its the thermal fuse; I saw a question similar to mine but it didn't mention anything about the top part of the dryer getting extremely hot. Do you have any suggestions? Do you know if this is a common problem with the model dryer? Thank u

Dryer comes on and runs, but blows cold air no heat. Tried different settings, still no heat.
