Kenmore dryer cuts off after 20-40 minutes
« on: December 30, 2018, 11:32:51 PM »

Hi Everyone,

I have a kenmore 66902691 dryer.

I recently had an issue where the original motor broke (was making a nasty noise, would get hot and wouldn't start until it cooled), so I replaced it with a new motor and cleaned the dryer as best as I could.

It worked fine for maybe 5-10 loads, now I'm getting an issue where the dryer will cut off 20-40 minutes into a load. I'm able to start it again pretty quickly however. We're using a timed dry and setting it to 80 minutes (max).

Any suggestions on the next thing I should be checking / replacing?

Thanks

Dryer appears to be getting too hot... I guess I can try and change the vent, not sure what else I should be changing or checking though...
