try cleaning the vent line. if you have a flex vent line make sure it isn't kinked in any spot. make sure the outlet outside does not have a birds nest or anything blocking it

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.

If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.
2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.
3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).
4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.
You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.
NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
