It's probably detecting the humidity and shutting off because the clothes are dry.
From the manual, (which you should read)
"Drying and Cycle Tips
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time, which is determined by your dryer automatically
sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed Cycle or
SteamCare Cycle is running, the display shows the exact number
of minutes remaining in the cycle"
My guess is you don't have it switched to timed cycle?

Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

LG front load dryer jumps from 40 min to 19 min to 5 min in short time. Any suggestions?


Dryers can base their drying time two different ways. If you are using the "dryness" settings, when you first start the cycle, the timer will show a specific time. If the contents dry fairly fast, the moisture sensors in the dryer will reduce the remaining drying time. This may be what is causing your changes. If you want a specific time on the dryer, or the dryness settings aren't getting the clothes as dry as you'd like, opt for a "timed" dryer setting, where you choose the drying time. This bypasses the sensors.

Dryer runs for few mins the shouts off


Hello David Neal, I appreciate your post!

I see that you are stating your Frigidaire dryer will run for a few minutes and then shut down. It sounds like a potential problem with your control panel or wiring harness. I would seek assistance from a profession technician to come out and properly diagnosis your dryer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Whirlpool Duet dryer time skips mins.


clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

I set my dryer at 40 minutes. after 1 hr the dryer is still on and the timer still says 40 mins . clothes are dry


Your timer motor is bad. The motor is located behind the dial, and if the dial is not turning, then then the motor required to drive it is bad.
To replace timer motor, kill power to dryer and remove panel behind the timer knob. This should provide you access to the motor. Two screws hold motor in place-remove these and disconnect at push on terminals. Make sure you mark your wires so you reconnect to new mototr in proper place!

My Kenmore drier won't stop now! Perhaps timer isn't working?


Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.


I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.

Maytag Bravos Dryer (1 mo. old) timer does not change from start


Maytag Bravos 400 Series Dryer purchased August 2009 - November 2009 required repair as I also experience the timer readjusting itself to excessive extended drying time when clothing was bone dry and hot. Sometimes extended to 1 hour 40 minutes! Serviceman stated problem was the Sensors in the dryer. Part number 8577274 Thermister and "Old Ohmed out open" whatever that means as listed on my repair ticket. Have not had that particular problem since. Make sure your dryer vents from dryer to outside are clean and clear of lint. Will help immensely. I have many other issues with this dryer it has been down FOUR times in 9 months. Fighting with Maytag to replace this lemon!
