Hi, Is the motor getting hot or is the element not shutting off? If it is the motor then it is going bad... If it is the element then the thermostat is bad and will just heat till the high limit shuts it down...then replace the thermostat and the high limit now that it has been activated...
here are a couple of tips that may also help you...
The problem is in the gas valve coils. They sit on the top of the gas valves. When these coils are energized open the gas valves and allowing the gas to burn. If one or more coil malfunctions, the dryer shuts off. It is usually difficult to properly test the coils and replacement is the best solution.
You may have a faulty motor winding or run capacitor.If the motor wind is shorted it will get hot and the thermal cutout goes open circuit (inside motor)and it starts again when cool.Also check that the air flow is OK eg Some models have a separate fan belt.Hope this helps.Cheers.
You probably need to clean your dryer vent. Dryer vents should be cleaned every couple of years to prevent them from being clogged with lint. You can check the air-flow by going outside where the vents terminate. What's probably happening is on sensor dry, there's a moister sensor that tells the machine to shut off when there's no moister. The hot is is being pushed back into the dryer and confusing the sensor. That's why it's working on timer dryer because that option bypasses the moisture sensor.
