do you have the model number ?
The model is: DLSR483GG0WW
No, it stops at different times, but it will start from where it stop if I start it again, I do this using the start knob.
I will and I will let you know.
I ran a load with the vent hose removed, a lot of hot air been vented into the room, yet the problem persists, it stops at different times but mostly after 40 o 50 minutes, I restart it immediately and it continues working, what else could it be?. Just in case, I opened the unit and found a lot of lint, I cleaned the unit and it completed the whole 80 minutes running, that was yesterday, but today I have the problem back.
Yes, I took the dryer apart, lots and lots of lint, removed all by hand and then with a vacuum. I am with you, I have been suspecting the motor is the problem, I have an spear motor, I will use it to replace the one I think is bad and see what happens.
I replaced the two motors: the drum and the blower, they were from a dryer that we replaced, I bowed the lint from the two motors with compressed air so they looked like new, now the dryer is working fine. The two motors that I replaced i will clean with compressed air too, I am pretty sure the lint (lots of it everywhere in the motors) was causing the motor to stop.
