You have a bad motor. You can remove and verify probably bad bearings and burnt start winding.

Any idea why my dryer is shutting off after a short time?

Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload and shutting down. If you here a Buzzing noise when you start dryer motors bad. If after you start the dryer wait and stop it after 10 min and then try and restart it if it buzzes and rattles bad motor.

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

Kenmore Clean Touch dryer making buzzing sound and

Ya, happened to me. Sounds like you may have a clogged vent. (in the tube, or the dryer itself. Try cleaning that out really good. Then, double check that the venting is secured properly. If not, may overheat and shut down. I think that's what's going on. After you clean tubing (And the inside tube on dryer), the buzzing will continue for a while (days) until itr resets. If it runs after this, but still buzzes, that's your problem. Hope this helps you!

Kenmore dryer runs then shuts off

The parts store should have never sold you the motor. They rarely if ever fail on a dryer. It sounds like a limit switch or sensor wire was damaged by the burning. Check out the wiring and if you feel comfortable jumper out one switch at a time to see which one is not working. Do only one at a time. Photograph everything before you take anything apart.
