Kennmore HE4 front loader dryer keeps shutting off mid cycle

Kennmore he4 dryer keeps shutting off mid cycle and wont turn back on unless I reset the braker then it pops up a pf code and I clear it and it will repeat the process it will last 10 to 15 minutes then completely shut off. Weve clea and replace the venting stuff replaced all the fuses. And it still doing the same

ANSWERS:

Power off and Unplug unit. Remove Cover where Eletrical Switches and buttons are look for main power supply by following thick black or red wires that lead to a large square or cylinder shaped object that may still hold eletrical charge. Using a gloved and grounded hand and an eletrical test meter test both ends for voltage. If none present remove and replace this object called a CAPACITOR it is not a back to the future joke but an actual important part that acts both as a fuse and regulator for power that comes in from wall plug and supplies the machines motors and components with correct amount of power. If replacing this part doesnt help you may have to give in and call repair man or buy good used one from a friend or neighbor Good luck
