    My Samsung dryer won't heat and shuts off after about 3-5 mins.

    Model Number: DV45H7000EW/A2
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    This is the 3rd time in 2 years that my dryer stops getting hot, we replaced 1 of the thermostats the first 2 times which fixed it. But this time it also shuts off after 3-5 mins. Wr have replaced 2 thermostats this time and nothing. We have the heating element that we are going to replace tonight, but I don't know why it's shutting off.

    Have you checked the heating element or are you just replacing it as you feel it is the most likely culprit?

    Can you restart the unit right after it shuts down?

    If you have to wait a couple minutes before it restarts it could be the motor overheating and tripping it"s thermal protect.
    You then have to wait for the motor to cool down (reset) before the unit will start.
