Kenmore dryer stops working when hot.

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

Recently replaced the motor (see my only other question), replaced the heater element about a year ago. Now dryer runs okay until it gets hot, anywhere from 10 - 30 min, and then stops. Opening the door and closing after cool down 'resets" the dryer, and it will run again. Will shut off 2-3 times during a 60 min cycle. Cleaned inside the dryer and also the vent tubing going out - wide open, no obstructions. Running, it doesn't seem to get too hot, just hot enough. It doesn't stop when it is on delicate (low heat). Thanks for your help.

I understand your concern toward wanting to make sure your dryer is heating properly and not shutting off and I will be happy to help. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your dryer so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link that describes a similar problem to the one that you are having. I hope my link is useful.
