GE Electric Dryer Model GTDP490ED7WS shuts off too soon. When I press the Start button it turns back on. It may or may not finish the cycle.

Hello,
A couple things... does the dryer shit off in timed dry before it hits 0?
Also.. if this is happening on automatic cycle sometimes a clogged or kinked dryer exhaust hose can cause this sort of thing as well.. Make sure the air flows freely all the way outside to the vent outdoors.

If the vent was clogged, wouldn't just the heat shut off and the drum still turns? Or would it also shut off the drum?
In the normal cotton cycle.
I replaced the timer-not fixed.

Well it could shut the dryer off if the motor overload switch was sensing it being too hot and therefore kill the power to the motor... it is also called a thermal protector.
Do the lights dim or is the dryer a little loud when it does start up?

There aren't any lights on it.
It shuts off after about 5 minutes. When I press the start button, it may or may not complete the cycle.
Other than that, everything seems normal.

Nothing changes. There doesn't seem to be a load on the system.
There is a 'dryness control board' in the dryer. I don't know how this controls.

ok if we can eliminate the motor and the dryer door switch then my research shows this board is part of the circuit that could shut the dryer off prematurely https://www.appliancezone.com/we04x10103-ge-dryer-dryness-control-board/
