Our dryer starts up and runs for a while (15-25mins) then a sound develops and the dryers stops working. It appears that whenever it cools down it will run again. On start up sometimes a strange sound is...


You definitely have a motor issue starting to develop. The motor bearings will usually allow the motor to run initially, but start to get loud after they heat up and eventually bind causing the motor to stop. The motor has a thermal switch on the side that will shut the motor off if it gets too hot, and will re-set after about 15 or 20 minutes.
The motors for this style dryer (I can't look up the exact part as I need the complete model # off your machine's model tag) are usually about $140-$160.
If you would like to get the motor and install it yourself, let me know and I can provide you walk-through directions on replacement of the part.

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...


Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.
