Our 4 cycle whirlpool dryer runs for 5 -10 minutes gets hot and shuts off.

check to see if the dryer vent is clogged up - When a dryer gets to hot it will shut off to prevent catching fire!!! If the vent is clogged it forces the heat from the dryer to stay in and that causes the dryer to over heat!!!

Whirlpool LER7646JQO Electric Dryer turns on, drum turning, runs for 3 to 5 minutes then clicks and shuts off. Smells like it is burning. No kink in hose vent or lint clogs.

Most dryers have more than one thermostat.

Most likely, the operating thermostat has failed, but the high limit thermostat is working and turns off the machine when it gets too hot. When it cools down it will start again and run briefly. If the high limit thermostat fails, the thermal fuse will permanently stop the dryer to prevent a fire.

Dryer runs for about 5 minutes and shuts off.

You may have a faulty motor winding or run capacitor.If the motor wind is shorted it will get hot and the thermal cutout goes open circuit (inside motor)and it starts again when cool.Also check that the air flow is OK eg Some models have a separate fan belt.Hope this helps.Cheers.
