Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
This is probably the motor going bad. The sensors wont cause this to happen. The start switch either, replacing all the sensors in the world wont make the motor be good again. But their is something you can do to try and make the motor last a while longer,their isn't any holes to oil the dryer motor so you must make some,using a 1/8th inch drill bit make a hole in either end of the motor where the bearings are (taking care not to hit the shaft), then add some hi temp oil such as zoom-oil, (dont use WD-40) and work the motor free as you can by hand. If this frees up the motor it may go a while longer. Also oil the rollers and check the slides to make sure they are not pinching and stalling the motor. If the motor can't reach top speed it will get hot,overload and stop.

For a gas dryer:
Assuming the dryer is working properly and the control cycles are ok, look for things like a restricted venting system which inclides the exhaust, lint screen, etc. This would be the large pipe connected to the dryer exhaust that vents outside.
If it's an electric dryer, there could be issues with heating elements, thermostats, a control board, the timer, etc. Also check for any excessive lint build-up.

Your timer motor is bad. The motor is located behind the dial, and if the dial is not turning, then then the motor required to drive it is bad.
To replace timer motor, kill power to dryer and remove panel behind the timer knob. This should provide you access to the motor. Two screws hold motor in place-remove these and disconnect at push on terminals. Make sure you mark your wires so you reconnect to new mototr in proper place!
