Dryer trips after operating for a short time. Cleaned and replaced vent. Operates fine on no heat. Replaced cycling thermostat. Checked heater coil for ground, satisfactory/no ground. Airflow seems adequate. Heater coil showing 10 ohms, seems low? Thanks.

Shuts off and needs to cool down.
stops Tumbling ?
sounds like a bad Motor (when warm)
try removing the Belt, and turn the Motor Shaft by hand.
Does it turn easily, smoothly ?

when it shuts down have you checked to make sure there is still 220 at the outlet, i have seen weak breakers cut power and restore it when cooled off without having to be manually reset. that model seems pretty new to be needing a motor already, not that it isnt possibly, just look for other causes first

Motor spins, makes scraping sound, and stops turning. Not siezed, but not spinning great. Blower wheel did not want to come off. Motor gooed possibility as I never saw any temperature switch open, despite red hot element and hot heater housing.
