17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
Your house may be built on a swamp or else on a spring!
Usually a good pump will last for years, ever if running continuously.
Stopping and starting is harder on a motor than continuous running.
If the pump bearings are run continuously, they may sieze up and burn out the motor.
Perhaps a pump with a greater rate of flow would be a good idea. It would quickly draw down the water level and allow parts to cool. That, or install two pumps!
