dv306lew dryer powers down unexpectedly

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.



when this shuts off can you push start immediately and it will start right back up or do you have to wait 3-5 minutes before it will restart?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Wait varied amounts of time. Minutes to an hour.


Also, dryer might power down after an hour of running or this morning I started it after sitting all night and powered down in 20 secs.

does the drum feel tight if you try to spin it by hand?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No, spun it by hand once I had the top off to vacuum lint off of it.
does the motor sound loud when its starting up, like loud buzz or hum then start?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No, sounds normal.
okay so when it doesn't start you don't even hear the motor trying to start ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.


The console is off, no power or display, acts as if it is unplugged. Then after an unspecified amount of time it will just power up.

okay, the power control board is the issue, it need to be replaced, heres a link to order it, its up in the control panel where you set the controls.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
What has failed on the power control board to cause it to shutdown?
the power relay or the computer chip, one or the other but they don't sell those just the whole board.
