In dryers, the small clothes can get caught in one of the drum seals and make a scrapping noise, ( remove power, grab a flash light and have a peek inside through the door opening ) or the cloth can actually pass through one of the heating duct holes at the back of the drum and touch something electrical like the heating element, thermostats and so the noise comming.

Dryer stops after about 10 minutes. can be re-started but stops again and again. Thermostat was replaced about two months ago.

the motor could be overheating,you might need a clean out on the dryer?vac out the inside where the motor is,clean out the duct where the lint filter slides into and then go outside and make sure the air is blowing out with force,i've been finding alot of cages outside that stop animals from crawling into the vent line but the cage also catches lint and stops the air flow,if so take the cage off or clean it every month,if you have a long run blow out the vent line with a leaf blower,you could also have a bad motor

Dryer starts with heat. After 10-15 minutes, when dryer calls for more heat, here a metal clicking noise, flame does not ignite. When it's clicking, I can look down the back from the top and see a glow....

Your gas valve coils are defective. Part #694539 and 694540 are required. Once the coils get hot they collapse internally and the gas valve shuts off. This is a common problem when valve coils get weak from use.
