I have been trying to figure out what is causing this issue to no avail. The dryer will run for almost 6 minutes before shutting off (this happens on all cycles). the dryer will not restart for about 8-10 minutes but once restarted it will complete the 30-40 minute cycle with no issues. I replaced the motor thinking it was the culprit but the problem continues. the vent was recently cleaned and has good air flow. I'm hoping someone can help point me in the right direction.
Thanks.

That's what I would have done also. That's a strange problem but I think the key to solving it is the 10 minute delay before you can turn it on again. Sounds like a possible thermostat problem:
