Question about Dryers
If you run the dryer with the front off, the air is sucked in the open front and out the vent. The combustion air (and heat) is not drawn away from the burner, which causes the burner to short cycle. You may also have this same condition with the front on if you have a poor vent. Don't use any flexible venting. Use rigid aluminum pipe and adjustable elbows if needed. Clean the vent out and make sure the outside vent is clean and air flows out the vent with a strong flow. The outside vent should be a 4 inch vent, not a 2 inch vent flap. That normally will solve your problem. Rarely, a gas valve may cause these symptoms, but make sure the vent is good first.

Tips for a great answer:
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
