Question about Dryers
Could be that the heating element has gone bad or a Heat sensor connected on the side of the Heating element itself. If you can't work on these things your self it will need to be checked by a person who can. If it's very old it might not be worth paying someone to do this. The element may run you $60.00, the sensors maybe two of them are around $15.00 each and the labor?? Ya got a handy neighbor that will help for a nice Apple Pie?

If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.

no. what you are getting is an over heat sense and is shutting the unit down this is a safety type of thermostat and will shut down the heating cycle prematurely as it will with a clogged vent or lint filter

Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.
