Kenmore dryer stops working when hot.

Recently replaced the motor (see my only other question), replaced the heater element about a year ago. Now dryer runs okay until it gets hot, anywhere from 10 - 30 min, and then stops. Opening the door and closing after cool down 'resets" the dryer, and it will run again. Will shut off 2-3 times during a 60 min cycle. Cleaned inside the dryer and also the vent tubing going out - wide open, no obstructions. Running, it doesn't seem to get too hot, just hot enough. It doesn't stop when it is on delicate (low heat). Thanks for your help.

While you are waiting for an expert answer, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your dryer so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer.
