You need to determine if the problem is the hi - limit switch, motor or the control board.
Remove the top (3 screws at the back slide and lift up), Locate the main control board Part number: WE4M488

Part number: WE4M488

When the dryer fails and stops use the multimeter to check if there is 120VAC at the 3 wire plug OR(3) and WH(2). If the voltage is present - the hi-limit is open and you should check the entire air flow system for restrictions.
If not - move to the 4 wire plug and check for 120VAC from PURP(3) to Brown/Yellow(2).
If the voltage present - most likely it's the bad motor.
If no voltage - bad control board.

The motor Part number: WE17M42

Part number: WE17M42

The hi-limit Part number: WE4M137

Part number: WE4M137
