Somehow you are not getting enough air through the dryer to maintain a temperature below the thermal high temp cutout temp. or there is a control problem for the heating element so it may stay on the 5 minutes but like an oven the thermostat turns the element on and off. I hope you understand. There may be a relay that turns the element on and off, but the contacts have "frozen" or welded themselves together. If so that's your problem. Or there is another device with a similar problem. Unplug, trace the 220vac wires to controls and the heating element. Double check wiring. the Safety devices may be 110vac rated and 220vac is going through so won't hold the power flow. Hope this helps.
Don't have your model so I couldn't bring up the schematic some will run with an open thermal fuse I suspect thermal fuse which is non resettable I've only run across a bad thermistor once based on the age check the exhaust exiting the house and at the dryer this a safety fuse designed to open due to excessive heat if the dryer cannot breath restricted exhaust.
I see that you're having a Problem with your Frigidaire GLEH1642DS Front Load Stacked Washer/Dryer. I see that the washer will not work until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would recommend giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or switching the circuit breaker off that the appliance is attached to. When you do this you will want to leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has elapsed, bring power back on and try to restart it. If you are still having trouble with the washer not working until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose and see why you keep receiving this error code.
It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating
element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has
ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your
dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
AD means "auto dry", which means the dryer is supposed to be detecting the moisture levels in your clothing and adjusting the drying time accordingly.
If your dryer is flashing "AD" and turning off shortly after the start, there is likely a problem with the mechanism designed to detecting the moisture levels. If it turns off after trying to use all various settings (including the no-heat feature), it is likely a wiring issue.
