Your advice did not help I'm sorry to say. I talked to a appliance Parts place over the phone live and it was easier to diagnose it over the phone instead of running back in forth to a computer being the dryer was in the basement and my computer was on the 2nd floor,that's why on your site I got disconnected twice cause they wanted a response right away and since I was downstairs and didn't answer after several attempts by your techs I got disconnected!!!!!!!!!! very rude Sorry but I wasn't Happy.

Sound like you need to replace the heating elament you will need to take your model number and make to repair shop for replacement parts or have a repair person come out and fix it for you . thanx for using fixya
Hi, This could be caused by an internal thermal overload switch. These usually have a limited life span in any appliance that uses heating elements. Try to locate the overload switch which usually looks like a small diode or resistor. You can determine if this is the cause by bridging the switch with a piece of wire, then trying the dryer once more. Best wishes, Graemevm
If the lower front cover comes off remove the cover and vacuum around heating element and surroundings. A lot of time there is a lot of lint build up and the heating element will stay off for safety.
once this is done you should be fine.
Another place to check is the exaust hose. Make sure it is not blocked along with the vent that leads outside. If this is blocked it will cause the dryer to go into shut down mode.
