    Default Kenmore 70 series stops after 10 minutes

    Hi I have a kenmore dryer 70 series heavy duty electric dryer. The problem is the dryer will run for 10 minutes or so and then stop working. If I go and push the start button the dryer starts right up. I did read another post about the timer and it said if it buzzes in the off position its a bad timer(my dryer does that). Are there any other parts I should check? Does the thermostat shunt the circuit somehow? Over heating? I checked the fuse and the elements. I am a certified eletrician and I understand most of the internals of a dryer. I just want to make sure its the timer before i spend $$. Thanks !!

    Thanks,

    Before buying a timer, check that lint hasn't clogged your motor causing it to overheat and shut down.
