Whirlpool dryer is squeaking and shuts off constantly after one cycle

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

GE Profile about 6 years old DPVH890EJWW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

When it shuts off, will it start right back up?

I have checked for lint buildup and obstructions to the vent already

Does it do the same thing in a Timed DRy setting or just in Auto Dry cycles?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Same in both cycles. It will usually run one load fine. Then won't continue without shutting off constantly for hours after the first cycle.

How long will it run after it shuts off and you restart it?

Thank you!

The main control will need to be replaced. It is mounted just under the top above the drum. All connections simply unplug and plug in, making for an easy repair!
