How old is your dryer?
Also does it still get hot when it runs for this short time?
This is a bad thermal sensor inside.
It thinks the dryer is getting too hot so it shuts it down.
The part is not expensive and relatively easy to replace. The worst of this dis disassembly.
I will help you, do this if you're a lil handy and have a few basic hand tools.
The one you need is located on the heater box.
The best place to get that thermal and I would also replace the Thermostat in there as well so you don't have any further issue down the road is: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/
I would call them for these two parts: 0844(###) ###-####a href="http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/" target="_blank">Home » Parts » Laundry Spares » Tumble Dryers » Siemens

Hi Arne, no thats not the one.
But let me ask, when it stops abnormally, does the entire machine tun off, or does the cycle just seem to end?
Thank you for clearing that up for me.
The problem is, the main control board not any of the sensors.
Its easy to replace no soldering , but there are quite a few plug in connectors to that board. I recommend taking a pic or two before removing any of the wiring clips from the board.
The same place has that board as well Ransom Spares.
But you need to mention to them on this part, to make sure they send you one that comes with a pre-programmed PROM.
Sometimes they will send out boards that have not been programmed, and then you would need a tech to come out and program the board. And thats an added expense you wont need if you mention that to them;-)
Please rate kindly at this time so I can stick with you until we are sure this gets done without any issues.
Thanks Arne ;-)
Hi Arne, sometimes that is the case.
I agree with you on replacing the dryer, thank you for rating kindly ;-)
Have a great day, and best of luck with your new dryer.
