SOURCE: electric dryer shutting off
It sounds like a thermal breaker is engaging and then automatically resetting once it cools off. I'm guessing that if you were to feel the dryer when it was running, it is really hot.
The most likely problem is that the exhaust vent for the dryer is plugged up with lint either within the dryer itself or in the part that is in your wall and exits someplace outside (could be as far as the roof). When the hot air can't escape the dryer overheats and shuts off to prevent a fire.
You might have to take apart the dryer to get at the blockage if it is there but try this first. Unplug the dryer. Make sure that it is cool. Pull it away from the wall. Disconnect the vent hose in the back. Stick your hand in the opening and start pulling out lint. Once you get everything out you can, plug the dryer back in - leaving the hose off - and turn it on. A bunch of lint will blow out. Let the dryer run and see if it shuts off. If not, then you know there is no problem with your dryer.
The next step is to clean out your vent lines. Depending on where they run and how long the run is, this could be a difficult.
When you are all done, connect it all back up.

Have you cleaned the exit hose thoroughly? Pulled the exhaust line and cleaned?
Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement. The element has a contact in the 'timer' circuit too.
It is possible that your element has failed also.
Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.
