Dryer Starts -Stops -Starts- Stops -Starts....
Dryer occasionally will start and go for a while then stop and start again for a while the stop then start on and on until it finishes. No pattern to when it happens and usually is fine the next day. When it happens the dryers stops and the lcd holds at the time left in cycle. No other data or codes. Dryer kicks back on and the lcd counts down then stops and holds and on and on untill cycle counts down. the "pause" is perhaps 5 - 10 minutes per incident and the dryer starts for about 5 min. so 10 off 5 on 10 off 5 on... I am assuming it is a temp sensor but which one? Dryer lint inside blower was cleaned out 3 months ago. Any ideas?

It's very hard to say exactly what is wrong because the problem is intermittent. I would suspect the main power board because it stops to count down the time when the dryer stops.

- The main power board Part number: WE4M488

Part number: WE4M488
