Its very likely the motor is bad and overheating. Here is the part you will need.

When I Run The Dryer In The Cool Down Mode (no Heat) It Does Not Cut Off. Would It Still Be The Motor?

No if it only shuts down in heat mode then the motor is likely ok.
Have you tried in other modes like delicate mode (low heat)?
It may be a problem with the control board.

I doubt its an issue with the thermostats as they only shut down the heat not turn off the dryer.
Its not the thermal fuse it doesn't reset.

I would be inclined to say the control board is having power issues. Try replacing it.
