Does this happen on Timed Dry or Auto Dry?
Does the motor restart right away?

This happens on timed dry.The motor must cool down before it will restart . I am thinking about a 1/2 hour cool down before it will restart.

Disassemble the dryer.
Check the blower wheel for a lint buildup.
Check for a loose belt.
Check for a stuck roller on the belt tensioner.
Check the drum roller supports they must turn freely.
Turn the motor shaft by hand. It must turn freely.

I installed a new belt, new roller supports, cleaned the dryer wheel. It is still the same.
