After unplugging the dryer, disassemble and clear motor of all lint build up. Motor will overheat and cycle on the thermal protector if this is the case. Secondly, a malfunctioning centrifugal switch, shorted motor windings, or tight bearings could all cause this failure. A restricted vent could cause this in some dryer designs.

Why would my dryer get hot than after a couple minutes shut down and not turn back on until it cools down? Could it be a thermostat or weak gas valve?
