Take the exhaust vent off the rear and try it.
If it runs OK,repair the vent blockage/restriction.
If it does not run OK,replace the motor.

Hi, In looking at your problem please do the following. Go behind the dryer. The vent hose that is attached to the back of the dryer has to go straight to the wall outlet. It must not have any bends whatsoever. Its a straight shot to the wall. This should take care of it shutting off and being too hot. You may need, after the above, to change out the cycling thermo. Thanks for your inquiry and hope this helps. Have a Good Day!

Sounds like it is getting too hot and the hi-temp safety switch opens up until it cools down again. Try vacuuming all of the vent pipes and hose. Remove the lint screen and wash it in hot water and detergent to clean it of fabric softener deposits. Hope this helps!

Dryer runs for 5 or 10 min then shuts off


You cycling thermostat is bad, making it run on the thermal cut off. When it gets to hot, it breaks the circuit. After it cools, it remakes therefore you are able to turn it on again. If you continue to operate it this way, it will go out therefore putting you thermal fuse out also. Go to partselect.com. enter your model number. This will bring you unit up. You will be able to find the parts you need and even order them if you want. As of now, all you will need is a Cycling thermostat
