Dryer Stops Mid-Cycle


Possible Solutions

Were you using the Wrinkle Shield option?

If you will be unable to remove a load immediately, touch Wrinkle Shield™ to add up to 150 minutes of periodic tumbling to help reduce wrinkling. You may select the “+ Steam” setting (on some models) to add a short steam cycle after 60 minutes to help smooth out wrinkles.

Were you using the Static Reduce option?

Touch to add the Static Reduce option to selected Automatic cycles. The dryer will automatically tumble, pause, and introduce a small amount of moisture into the load to help reduce static. This option adds approximately 8 minutes to the total cycle time.
