The thermocouple may be going bad. The thermocouple is what "tells" the control unit that there is a flame. If it doesn't send it's signal, the control thinks the flame went out and shuts off the gas to prevent an explosion.

Hello plz make sure the gas burner does not have any lint build up on burner assembly inside the machine / plz clean.That usually causes a burnt smell. If there is no error codes on the display and the machines is operating fine you are chasing a ghost. If there is a pump or motor over load an error code should come up on the display.

Check coils on burner assembly. Often when a dryer heats initially and then stops heating a coils has gone bad.
