Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.

Does the motor humm when it starts?
If it humms then the motor is bad. Make sure the rollers are not stuck or that the blower has obstructions inside.

There is a clicking sound when you press start.


If you heat a click when you push the button,but the drum doesnt turn your belt is broken. About $15 and simple to install.

Kenmore 90 plus series dryer won't work


Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:

It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.
