SOURCE: elec. Whirlpool dryer shuts off before clothes are dry, unplug to

I doubt it is your motor that is causing the problem. It's always nice when someone says that it is the most expensive part to fix and that is the only solution. It's an electric dryer and there are tons of things that could be causing the issue for you. It sounds like the problem is probably the thermostat. What this does is shuts off the dryer if the heat is getting to high in the dryer. It is a safety feature to prevent it from catching on fire. It is a easy and cheap fix. The thermostat is located usually somewhere near the heating element housing and only costs around 20 dollars at any appliance repair shop. There is a wire diagram located behind the backing of your control panel. Just remove the few screws and take off the housing. It will help you locate the thermostat. If the motor was the problem your dryer wouldn't shut off the way it is. The thermostat is just shutting it down for safety and that is why you need to keep unplugging it to reset it. Change it out and it should work just fine for you. If you have any other questions let me know and good luck to you.

try flipping you breaker off and on 2 or 3 times (hard and fast) if this don't work check element, timer , thermostats and safety switch on motor (check wiring diagram heaver red wire for pin numbers of safety switch)....if this switch goes bad the motor will still run but it wont let power go to element

SOURCE: Control Panel in my whirlpool duet dryer model

First check for 220 volts incoming power to the dryer at the terminal block on the rear of the dryer.
If you have 220 volts,check continuity on part number 59(thermal fuse) in the attached diagram. No continuity is a bad part.

cut and paste this link to your dryer diagram.
