If it is shutting down completely before the cycle is over, are you able to turn it back on immediately?

No it has to cool down a few minutes before i can turn it back on. I'm kind of confused on what it could be now

Nope, bad motor bearings. A new motor should put it back to new, in light of all the parts you have used by now :)

Be dang sure you dont have foil duct back there or even worse, white vinyl. Motors don't usually go out except under duress.

sometimes it will run through full drying cycle and other times it will shut down and have to cool down before turning it on again. Do you recommend the blower wheel or the blower wheel and motor? can you give me some part numbers so i can see what these items will cost?

Type the model number into the parts lookup on the left and see the whole machine. Search for motor and blower from there.
