For Whirlpool Dryer Drive Motor (Part Number: AP3094233)

Start Button pushed down for seconds to get motor started. Dry's for 10 mins. Shuts off. No longer starts even when Start button is depressed (otherwise I smell a burning smell coming from panel). After 1 hr, it will turn on but repeat the process. It didn't used to start before so I originally cleaned out all the lint on the motor, blower wheel, etc. Motor can now be heard when dryer is on. Not quiet as before. Is it really the motor starting to go out? Thanks

ANSWER Hello Norman. Yes, based on the information you provided, you will need to order and replace the motor if the tub is not binding up in the unit.
