As the temperature drops, the control activates the heat to turn it back on. This on-off cycle can occur multiple times (depending on the fabric, load size, and cycle selector configuration). The cycle selector moves forward (when the heating is off) until it automatically shuts off the dryer. So, will my dryer turn off automatically? The answer is yes, if it is designed for this purpose.
Most modern dryers come with an automatic shutdown system, which means that the dryer will turn off after the clothes have dried. However, if your dryer doesn't have this feature, you'll probably have to manually turn it off. The most common reason why condenser dryers stop in the middle of the cycle is that the condensing tray is full. This tray should be emptied after each use, so that it does not overflow. If this is imminent, the dryer will activate a safety mechanism that will turn off the appliance.
If the dryer overheats, a thermal overload switch automatically shuts it off before it gets too hot. The dryer door may also break down over time and therefore not close tightly, causing the dryer to shut down automatically. If the dryer motor is not the cause of the problem, then the next likely reason for the dryer to shut down is a faulty drive belt. To avoid wasting energy or throwing clothes everywhere, the dryer comes with a safety mechanism that stops working when the dryer door is open. If your dryer is old, it most likely doesn't have an automatic shutdown switch, but this feature is mainly present in modern dryers. In conclusion, most modern dryers come with an automatic shutdown system that turns off after drying clothes.
However, if your dryer doesn't have this feature, you'll need to manually turn it off. Additionally, if your condensing tray is full or your drive belt is faulty, your dryer may shut down automatically. Lastly, if your dryer door isn't closing tightly, it may also shut down automatically.
