Question about Magic Chef CYE4000AWW Electric Dryer
I can start drying my clothes and after a while it stops. I can lt it cool down and then dry some more.
Lint build up in the duct will do that. If that's clear, it could be a problem around the fan area. You have to take the machine apart to check that. While apart, vacuum everything, including all the crooks and crannies of the motor. Your motor could be worn out if the machine is real old, ten years or more. Wiggle the motor at both ends, it should spin smoothly, not move up and down at all.

I suspect an accumulation of lint around the control thermostats and possibly the high-limit thermostat. It usually requires that you disassemble at least part of the dryer to get to the thermostats and sometimes you have to remove the drum to get to them.
You don't say how old your dryer is, but I highly suspect this to be the root cause of your problem. If a thorough cleaning doesn't help, the next suspect is the high limit thermostat which helps prevent an overheat condition but sometimes can go out of calibration and shut the dryer down prematurely. Replacing it is usually pretty straightforward once you get the dryer disassembled enough to get to it. Not a terribly expensive fix.
Hope this was helpful to you or to any reading this response.
