The dryer has been shutting down before the end of cycle for the last week. It runs 20 -30 minutes, then stops. It restarts, then stops again. I suspect the motor thermal switch tripping out. The filter is always cleaned and the air flow exhaust seems perfect.

Here is the wiring diagram
http://www.servicematters.com/docs/w...%203401724.pdf

Sounds like the motor is overheating.

Could be a number of things:
1. The motor is toast
2. Drum is overloading the motor. Try rotating the drum in the correct direction by hand should rotate fairly easily. Perhaps try this on a couple other dryers to get a feel for it.
3. The motor is clogged with lint so it cannot coll properly
4. The start winding centrifugal switch is not removing the start winding from the circuit when the motor starts rotating. Usually this will cost you a new motor as the switches are not available as a separate item.

Default denman's tips right on!

From RayD:
Denman's tips were right on and extremely helpful. Although I was prepared to tear into the dryer motor, the problem is definitely #2 on the list - the drum is not turning freely. Although the Kitchen Aid Dryer looks new on the outside, it been extremely reliable for over 19 years old. I guess it is time for a replacement. Thank you so much.

I have a similar problem. Dryer is about 5 years old, a GE front load gas unit, model DCVH515GFOWW. It has worked without a problem until yesterday. It runs, then after a while it will stop running. The drum stops, but the front panel timer continues to count down. Then after about two or three or more minutes it will start spinning again. I took the top off and the front off and did not see anything. I read the codes and there was only one code E60 for the door switch. I used an ohm meter and the switch appears to be operating correctly. It did it again an hour ago for my wife. I will attempt to read the code when I get home tonight.

Any ideas what would cause the drum to stop spinning, then restart a few minutes later? I ran the T10 exhaust system check and it was find. In addition the dryer blose fine as well.

Thanks,

Dave
