    For the past 2 days, I have had an issue with my Whirlpool Duet clothes dryer. It is about 5 years old and electric.
    The issue is this, it will run about 1/2 of the cycle then click and shut off. It must then sit idle for about an hour before you can turn it on to complete the drying cycle.

    OK guys, help

    Overheating due to lint ball plugging up the vent pipe? First thing that comes to my mind...especially something to check if the dryer seems to take longer and longer to dry clothes.

    My thought exactly. Also try to Google appliance repair. There are some great web sites and much helpful knowledge out there.

    I would check the thermistor, part# 8577274, I sell a lot of them. Do you get an error code? Sounds more like a motor issue though. Tripping on overload.

    Have you tried the Cool Line?? Whirlpool has the best factory support of any of the major manufacturers. They generally don't tell you to call a dealer if it isn't something simple. If you sound like you know what you are talking about and you've checked the basics like the vent, give them a call. 800-253-1301
