Hi

Can you post the model number please.

Also when you say it wont stay on whats it actually doing?
Is it tripping the electrics out?
Is it ending the cycle early?
How long does it run for before it does this?

Regards

Sorry for all the questions, Just trying to get a picture of what is happening with the dryer. When you start it and it runs for the minute before it stops do you feel any heat in there?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Starts for 1 minute then stops and lights are on , no heat

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
Ok if its not heating then thats why its stopping with the light comming on.

What you need to do is remove the buldge cover on the back of the dryer and behind there you will see the heater.

You need a multi meter and on the heater there you will see the thermostats on the top. You need to test both of them and see if any are faulty. If one is then im afraid you need to replace the heater as this comes complete with the thermostats atteched to it and that should cure it from there.

So check the thermostats first on the back and see what you find and let me know.
