From the description you give I suspect the motor. The one thing to check that hasn't would be the voltage at the outlet while the dryer is running.

Extreme care should be used to do this and I would suggest a technician or someone comfortable and confident using a meter do it.

Low voltage will make the dryer motor run hot. The voltage may be okay when checked at the plug but it needs to be checked under a load while running. It must read at least 110 volts and no lower.

From the description you give there is no lint build up over the motor or if there was there is none after you cleaned everything.

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

A:

If there is a short across the sensor then the timer/control will only see wet clothes and would keep running to dry the load.

You can check the sensor. It should have an open circuit till something wet is put across the sensor.

If the sensor show a circuit then it will never see the dry clothes and keep tumbling since the sensor is showing wet clothes.

One thing to try is cleaning the sensor bars with rubbing alcohol. There may be a build up of fabric softener on the moisture sensor bars.

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
