I journeyed deep into the abiss of neptune looking for its soul.  Trying to find out why, why oh why does the damn thing shut itself off.  Clothes only partially dry.  The mind of neptune doesn't allow itself to be turned on again until several hours later.  Would seem to this feeble mind that a thermostat sensor is amiss.  Or maybe the motor?  How do I find the right path?

The vent was clear.  The insides were clean.  I seek the truth.  Can the path be found?

For some reason, the motor is running hot and it's thermal limiter is shutting it off. Could be a bad motor bearing, or maybe the motor is getting low voltage from the timer.

I've also seen situations where the laundry appliances are in the same room as the hot water heater and oil-burner with ambient temps above 109F. This high ambient temp will cause a dryer motor to nuisance-trip on thermal overload.
