Default Dryer turns off mid cycle and then turns itself back on

Yesterday, I took my dryer apart, cleaned out the lint and replaced the white and gray slides due to a grinding noise. I put it back together started it and it sounded great. My wife put a load in and started the dryer, it ran for about 10 minutes and stopped, it sat for about 10 minutes and restarted on its own. I took the dryer apart again, checking the motor for any additional lint. Put the dryer back together restarted it and it stopped again mid cycle and started back up on its own after sitting for a few minutes. I pulled the dryer out from the wall disconnected the vent hose and restarted the dryer and the same thing occured, it ran for a while, shut down, sat for a few minutes and restarted on its own. Thoughts?? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of this matter and Merry Christmas,

Hi.

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


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Controls & Backsplash parts for GE DBVH512EF0WW - AppliancePartsPros.com
