You have to check the heater & motor, probably earth leakage.

My dryer will beep most of the time and then I've noticed if it beeps it won't dry. It will dry some of the time and then it won't . What do I need to do. The dryer is only about 2 years old if that.

Turn off the power and unplug the cable, wait 1 min. and plug it back inn, turn the power on and it will go back to normal setting,

My dryer only has heat for 2 min after it starts then the flame goes off

Does the problem happen in timed drying as well as automatic drying?If it happens in all modes I would suspect a high limit thermostat is tripping. Especially if it starts back up after cooling down.
Check for clogged or obstructed vent hose .Make sure your getting good air flow from blower to the outside.If you have flexible hose make sure there is no water collected in it.Make sure lint screen is clean.It may be time to take off back panel and check for massive dust deposits.If ok ,then with the back is off you can put a volt meter on timer side of thermostat or stats and turn on dryer . When flame cuts out at 2 minutes ,see what volt meter says .If voltage good there then the problem is high limit thermostat or bad igniter or bad gas valve.If no voltage then then the problem is with moisture sensor.

Takes three cycles to dry towels, displays 45 min. turns off within 30 min. still not dry

2 possible reasons, either the towels have not been spun at a high enough speed and are too wet, or the dryer is not getting hot enough because it is not switched to a high enough heat setting or there is a partial element or thermostat or humidity sensor failure. You should spin your towels as fast as you can, 1000 MINIMUM but 1400 or more is better. Did it ever work? Is it a new drier? Is it getting hot? 45 mins is a short time anyway to dry a full load of towels.

Dryer only shuts off and restarts during cycle

Get a new timer. It is not that expensive and the wiring is fairly simple.

Dryer gets hot and turns off timmer still going,wont restart for approx 20 min

there is a thermal switch it cuts out the heater element when its at temp. also so has a thermal switch that cut out the unit if it gets to hot. there will be two thermal switches or a combined one. it will have 2 to 3 wire on it and is directly connected to the the drum. one of these is the problem the thermal switch is working as its cutting out the unit. to stop a fire.
