Hello and sorry to hear you're having a dryer problem to make this as simple as possible have you checked the exhaust and clean the blower wheel the reason I'm asking is it may be overheating because of lack of air flow

The three items that I'm going to refer to or a place called a thermal limiter a high limit thermostat and the thermistor which monitor is the dryer temperature I would check those three items and I would also check the exhaust ductwork where it leaves your house and make sure it's not clogged up get back with me and let me know what you find and I'll get back I'll get back with you as soon as I can
