Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Without the specific model number to work with, I'm taking a guess that your dryer has a sensor at the back of the drum. That is the dryness sensor that the clothes rub against and let's the dryer determine if the clothes are dry, according to the setting you selected on the control knob.
First thing to do is use some Windex on a clean cloth to clean the senor strips as use of dryer softener sheets can leave a residue that builds up on the sensor and could be causing it to stop.
The other thing you can do is use the timed dry cycle to see if the dryer works correctly. If the dryer works OK in the regular timed cycle, then it is possible you have a defective sensor.
Without more information about your dryer, It is difficult to provide more possible diagnostic steps and provide you with a possible solution.
