You have taken off the back panel on the unit and made sure the red button on the high limit thermostat was not tripped?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it was i reset it element got red i re instaled back no heat i repeated and hit start no heat i let run lint filter flashes and it stoped

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
SO was the reset tripped again?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i reinstalled the back i will pull it of again and check

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
Ok if it is tripped again you have a blockage. Run it with the vent off or check the vent to the outside make sure you have a good strong airflow. You may have a ball of lint as well in the duct where the lint screen is going into the blower. That is a pain as you need to disassemble a lot of the machine to clean it. If you have a flexible hose you can get it down in there and put a vacuum nozzle at the other end for a make shift flexible vaccum extension to get it cleaned out. Let me know what you find but this all points to an airflow issue.

it was pulled apart and cleaned out when drum barring installed and new motor yesterday running with out vent hooked up

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
Ok were you running it all together with all the panels on or was something off when you were running it? If the element is glowing really bright red instead of a dull orange then something is not sealing. If the bloere duct, drum seals or panel are not in place correctly the air will not be pulled across the heater through the unit and out the rear vent causing it too overheat and glow bright red then trip the thermal limiter
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

not turning red at all it did before just for a short time than gos to lint filter and stops

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
So will it start up now at all or just goes to a blinking filter light?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

runs for 3 cycles of a few seconds each than goes to lint filter and stopes

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
This is normally a clogged up sensor or clogged lint screen. Pull out the lint screen look down iniside the duct in the corner. There you should see a sensor. If you can not see it there may be lint balled up over it. That sensor has to be cleared out and all lint has to be removed around it, that is a bad design and often causes that issue.. You can also remove the lint screen and try it to make sure that is not the issue.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no lint on sensor i pulled out lint filter heater comes on . i am running with top back and side off red button poped i reset it gets hot males a bubbling sound and pops it because back off and no air flow

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
You have a clog in the unit. Check the filter duct where the lint screen goes in. Either that is severely clogged or the blower wheel is broken. You need to take the front of the unit off to get at it. Something is blocked or broken and no air is flowing for sure.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no lint lots of air put back on ran four 4 cycles smelled hot stop running herd red button pop

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
OK even though there may be a lot of air coming out I believe you have a felt seal or something out of place. If the blower duct is not sealing tight it will still blow a lot of air, but it is sucking air from around the cabinet not through the drum for proper airflow. Same goes for the drum seals. If they are gone or not in place air will be sucked from outside not through the unit drawing air across the heater. If you did not have this issue before you put the bearing and motor in you have something not in place or together correctly causing this ariflow issue.
