Our Whirlpool (Model No. LER563EQ3) strats, heats, and vents, but shuts down after a few minutes. It restarts again after a few minute cool down. Any suggestions as to how to diagnose the problem would be greatly appreciated.

after is stops does it restart right away, or does it take awhile for it to restart??  you could have a motor going bad if it will not restart right away.   If it restarts immediately, you could have an electrical problem, not providing enough amps to the dryer motor when it starts getting warm.

It takes a few minutes to restart. Also, it seems to be an intermittent problem. After a couple of days of running for a few minutes at a time, this evening it has worked better, though still stopping periodically.

It takes a few minutes to restart. Anything I should do to verify it's a motor problem?
Thanks

It sounds like the motor is going bad, overheating and shutting off on the overload, and restarting after it has cooled down.
