Question about Dryers
It may be necessary to clean the condenser unit/module (heat exchanger). Often lint would accumulate reducing the efficiency of the condenser causing the temperature internally to rise above specs. Thermal cutoff senses and trips the unit.
In some instances, it could be the thermal sensor/thermostat. I think your particular model has two of them. To gain access inside, it would be required to remove 2~3 panelings. A continuity tester is needed to check the thermostats.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
