I didn't see any burnt marks on the connectors. But those plugs were very difficult to disconnect - except one which was too easy; this might be the loose connection you've been mentioning... I'll check if this fixes it. Thanks dab for all your help.

Check the Non resetable High Limit Thermo on you heating element ( it should be the top one). Its not making good contact. Let me know if that is  it. It was the problem for me on a GE dryer for me.
I been doing this too long...

The high limit thermostat if it opens will not make dryer stop running only shut off heat .He has said as posted dryer stops and then sometimes has to cool down and pushes start button and then it will run again for a while.

Sorry Dab, I had a brain freeze or something about the hi limit thermo.  Dab is right its a loose connection somewhere that's heating up.

Sorry dab! The dryer stopped having the problem so it had to be the lose connection. Thanks to you, AJ and all the others that helped me out. I really appreciated this site!
