I have the same problem!

Hi Jake. Well, I was so proud of myself for "fixing" my dryer. That didn't last long. If operating in the "TIMED" or "COTTON" Mode it still will overheat and shut off. If I only operate in the "CASUAL" Mode it works just fine in all three Temperature Settings, "DELICATE, MEDIUM, and HOT". If it works in the "CASUAL" Mode I would think it should work in "TIMED" or "COTTON" Modes, NOT. Doesn't make any sense to me, but this machine never has. At least it works (for now anyway) in the "CASUAL" Mode on any Temperature Setting.

Hi

I was wondering if you came up with a solution that worked. My dryer is doing the exact same thing!..

Thanks

Hi

Still trying to fix my dryer from doing the exact same thing as the other posts. We've replaced two thermostats but it hasn't fixed the issue. Any ideas anyone?

Hi,

Do you have the exact same model number GTX18ESSJ0WW?

Like I mentioned to Terry, Put the dryer in AIR FLUFF/NO HEAT and let it run for a couple minutes and see if it's hot inside the drum.

If no heat in AIR FLUFF/NO HEAT, then we are good there.

Next, With the dryer pulled out from the wall(With no clothes in it) with the exhaust vent off, its best to get a Pocket Thermometer to check your dryer heat temperature's blowing out the back of the dryer. Normal cycling temperatures would be 120-190 degrees. You should see the temperature rise and drop through the entire cycle.

I have model DPVH890GJMV

Temp does fluctuate during cycle and no heat during fluff. No error codes come up when I check the panel.

I have to move your posts into your own thread since your model number is different.
