my dryer does the same thing.
sounds like your dryer's exhaust needs to be cleaned as it is full of lint - the part that connects from the dryer to the wall and also inside of the wall. For Inside of the wall I usually take a fish tape .
also.... i would look at returning the dryer if it is not trapping the lint. i would return mine but it's out of warranty...

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.
You may have faulty gas valve solenoids, especially since you've already replaced the other ignition components. Below is an image, (I hope), of the solenoids which can be found and ordered from the link above. A more rare cause can be a lint filter obstruction, i.e. the screen can be coated with an invisible film from using fabric softener sheets. Try running water over the filter screen, horizontally, and if water does not strain through, then replace the filter and stop using fabric sheets.

You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have an amana electric dryer. Changed out thermal fuse and cleaned out vent. Thermal fuse is blown again, but I noticed that it is not cycling. The dryer is very hot on the outside on top.
