Default GE Dryer motor overheats and smells like burnt electrical
Model Number: GFDN110EL0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

When dryer gets turned on will run for a few seconds and then stop after a 10 second or so will restart without touching it will continue doing this until it is shut off mannually, all the while the increasing smell of burnt electrical. At first I thought the drum was binding causing the motor to overheat. I removed the top of dryer and drum rotates smoothly and belt was ok, then proceeded to remove control panel, front door assembly, and drum. checked drum glides for wear, this point at a loss, so I proceeded to reinstall door assembly, reconnected control panel and restarted the dryer with out the drum, and received the same result, motor ran a few second then cut out, then restarted after a few seconds. So I concluded the motor was shot. My question is whether there could be some other issue I'm not considering before I go out and spend $157 for a new motor assembly?
