Our basement dryer shuts off after drying clothes for approx 10-15 minutes, starts back up when it cools down, cleaned lint filter, checked vent tube and outside vent screen. Guess I need a thermostat or ?

Sounds like your motor bearing is starting to go out, that will cause the motor to overheat and cut the dryer off prematurely.

So when you start it, do you hear any sound at all, like its trying to start, humming or grinding sound?

Here is the motor for your model you can order in case you need it:
Manufacturer's Number: 279827

Ok, then you need a new motor, you can order it from the link I posted to it above, there is also an installation video in that link as well.
