My two year old kenmore elite side by side shuts off all the time. you have to turn it back on from the on off switch only to have it shut off a few minutes later. How do i fix this

I would start by checking the thermister on the vent housing.....model number would help here to get you a breakdown of this dryer.

Ahem....Pegi, you need a holiday...unless there's a side by side dryer out there :yikes:. Still need a model number (on a label inside the beer side, should be something like 106. plus 8 digits).

Hard to say, depends on whether the original problem was due to the compressor itself or merely the compressor overheating due to a dirty condenser.  Run it a while and see.  Report back here.
