The voltage at the outlet is OK. The motor runs for a short time and then is shut off. I would like to wire the motor directly to a power cord to make sure it is not being shut off by the timer. Do you have a wiring schematic?
Thanks

This is the most common cause for a motor to get bad due to overheating. In addition if you are not able to restart the dryer right after it stopped and/or it makes an unusual (humming) noise at time of start up then it proves that the motor has gone bad.

Unfortunately, I do not have the wiring diagram, but you probably can find it inside the control panel.

i have a whirlpool model tedx640pq0 electric dryer and it will only heat for about 2 min and then the heating element turns off. if i let the dryer sit for about an hour to completely cool down and turn it back on the process repeats. i think its one of the thermostats but i have no way to test them. is there a certain one that would cause this to happen? there is a cycling, high limit, and a thermal cut off shown on the diagram of my dryer

floodbc12,

The first thing I would do is clean the vent line all the way to the outlet and all air ducts and the blower inside the dryer.

What did you mean saying: "I have no way to test them"?

Here are the break down diagrams and the parts list for the Roper dryer Model TEDX640PQ0

i've cleaned the whole dryer as you have described and it still is doing the same thing. i ment that i do not have any sort of tester to see if the thermostats are working properly. just dont know which of the thermostats would cause the problem im having

You have to have a simple multimeter to perform the troubleshooting. Replacing parts by guessing can be very costly.

Unrelated note: I'm testing an igniter for Kenmore gas dryer (model 110.73932101) with digital multimeter and it reads 00.0 after going through a few other numbers (set at 20K ohms). Does that mean the ignite is good/bad or sth else? thanks.

You set the meter on very high range.

Okay, so at 200 it reads 64-65 and at 2K it reads .59

Is this good?

The igniter is good. Check the thermal fuse for continuity.
