Our dryer was drying but turns off after a few minutes. We bought a new start
switch and put it on. It ran for 2 minutes and stopped. When it cooled down it
restarted for 2 minutes. Now it will not start at all and the door light is off
when in the open position.
For the same reason as: wind (blows) vs wind (a clock) or present (gift) vs
present (presentation) or lead (the troops) vs lead (get the lead out of
your pants or "I did not object to the object" or There was a row among the
oarsmen about how to row. and so on and so on
What is the reasoning to replace the switch?
You may have a over heating condtion or safety high temp. switch(thermostat)
Your heating element maybe shorted or vent is plugged up.
When is trhe last time you cleaned the dryer inside out?
When you push the door switch to simulate a closed door, does the light come
on ? If so you have the door switch wired wrong. It has one common lead
and the other two are connected to it , one at a time. One turns on the
light and the other is to cut off the motor if the dryer is running.
That 2 minuit thing sounds like a heat problem. YOu may have a blocked or
partically blocked exhaust/vent system.
