For Whirlpool Dryer Cycle Thermostat (Part Number: AP3045874)

Our Whirlpool gas dryer shuts down after 20 minutes and won't restart until system cools down. I had the motor replaced two years ago and all other components (drum rollers, pulley, belt) seem ok. Cleaned out lint. Could it be the thermostat, or the thermal fuse? Thank you.

ANSWER Hello RB. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor is bad again. You need to check and make sure the drum is not to tight and causing the issue with the unit.
