Thanks for the question again about your dryer , i will be glad to assist you.

Based on the description you provided i think that the motor is shutting off from overheating. I reccomend cleaning the motor as they will often clog with lint and this will cause overheating and shut down.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.

I cleaned out the inside of the dryer, even removed the drum released the motor and vacuumed out the dust that was in the motor. The assembly rotates freely, but It still stops. I have a temperature meter (non contact) and waited for the dryer to stop, then measured the drum temp as 95deg and the motor as 108deg, so i think you are correct. Does the motor just fail and overheat without excess drag? Is the motor shot? How can I get a replacement motor? Bill

Hi Bill, does the unit start back up right away when it shuts down or do you have to wait a few minutes? Ron H.

Sorry Ron, I just read your message. I haven't been standing near the dryer so I haven't tried that. I will try that next. If it starts back up right away, what does that tell us? I ran a few more tests. I ran the dryer this morning for a 40 minute timed dry and it made it to the end of the cycle, but the clothes were cool when I took then out (and not quite dry). I ran another test with "fluff / no heat". I ran 2-20minute cycles and they both completed. So now I am not so sure that the motor is the problem.

Hi Bill, if the motor overheats it normally takes a few minutes for it to cool down and restart. Sound like cleaning helped that, but the clothes not drying is another issue, I think you vent to the outside may be restricted, check it out. Ron H.

I replaced most of the vent so I don't think that is the problem. I also ran without the vent and got similar results with/without the vent. I just completed a dry cycle with sheets and pillow cases. I set it to 30 minutes timed. It run the full cycle. The sheets were dry, but cool when the cycle ended. How does the timed cycle control heat? I restarted the cycle within a minute of the complete cycle and the heat came back on. I am not ready to declare the dryer working yet, but things are looking better. I just need to understand the details of the operation of the dryer. This dryer also has "Auto-sense" feature. I don't see any reference to this in the schematic. I can send you a copy of the schematic that is attached to the inside of the bottom panel, but there is no place for an attachment. It says PART NO. 3392222

Sorry for the double post, after hitting Relpy I got an "An error has occurred" so I sent it again. Then I reloaded the page and saw it posted twice. You may remove this message and the duplicate message if that helps.

Hi Bill, when the timer is set to a heated dry cycle, thermostats are added to the circuit along with the heater, one of the thermostats actually cycles the heating on and off during the cycle, the other is there in case the first does not work it cuts off the heat as well if needed. The timer has a cool down period at the end of each heated dry cycle that turns off the heat circuit normally the last ten minutes of the cycle. On auto dry there are moisture sensors inside the dryer and they cause the timer to advance as moisture is removed from the load. I hope this quick explanation is helpful. Ron H.
