If the timer is not advancing but is ticking that could be the problem. A dryer achieves a set temperature and stays there for a certain amount of time during a cycle. If the time never changes it may just keep heating up until the heat sensor shuts it down. If it is starting and shutting down its likely still related to the heat sensor.
when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.
the dryer is over heating up due to a blocked steam pipe , fluff build up inside the dryer. I have a dryer that id the exact same thing , found out it covered in fluff though out the whole dryer , motor and element ..
THE KENMORE DRYER I HAVE... IF REN IN THE COTTON CYCLE IT WILL RUN FOR 50 MINUTES AND SHUT OFF. ITS BOLWING HOT AIR AND THE OTHER CYCLES SEEM TO WORK FINE WITH OUT SHUTING DOWN SO ID APPRECIATE A TIP ON WHAT THIS PROBLEM COULD BE
It sounds as if you have a defective drive motor. After the motor runs for a while and heats up, the internal thermal switch cuts it off before it gets too hot and becomes a hazard. Once the motor cools down and the thermal switch makes up again, it will run and then repeat this process.
