I have an older Roper by Whirlpool gas dryer. It will run for about 10 minutes or so and then stop. It can't be restarted until it cools down. I've read that the problem is usually either the moisture sensor or the motor. We never use the Moisture Sensing cycle so it's probably not the sensor. However, it will run all day in the Fluff/No Heat cycle. Here's my question: if the motor is causing the shutdown, why doesn't it happen during the Fluff cycle. I'd hate to spend hundreds of dollars on a motor only to find out that I have a bad thermostat. Can anyone help?

seems like it could only be a bad Motor
Gets (extra) heat when the Heater is ON
When it stops, feel the Motor to see if it's hot.
The manufacturer has replaced part number 661654
with this item, part number 279827

Thanks. Honestly, I was hoping for some angel to appear from the sky to tell me it was a cheap fix. Thanks for providing the link to the motor and the installation video.
