Re: dryer won't stay running
Sounds as if you have a belt or tub roller problem. Either can be fixed fairly easy but you will have to remove the tub. This is normally done by removing the top, then the front of the dryer. It would help a lot if you had someone to help you remove the tub.

First, let's look at the switch on the door that is supposed to not allow the dryer to start if the door is open. If this switch fails, could cause the problem. (Somewhat common) Second, the switch that is supposed to start the machine could have failed. (Not too likely) Then check the circuit breaker in your "fuse box" in the hall or garage or basement or wherever. Circuit breakers can trip and not look like it. You might switch them (there are 2 together) on and off a few times to see if that is the problem. Be blessed.
Post some pictures of your pilot assembly. I think this might be one of them spark sensor deals where the pilot lights and then detects flame then relays that back to the control for igniton verification. OR just try and clean up the electrode with steel wool and see if the flames stays lit is what I would try.
i would check the door switch. it may be worn just enough that the vibration of the dryer opens the circuit for just a moment. then check for other loose connections. the fact that you can restart immediately usually indicates a momentary break in the circuit. a temperature switch usually takes a short time to reset. while it's still running, try rattling various switches or smack the door to see if it shuts off. (just a couple of simple ideas to start with).
THE ELEMENT CYCLES. NO IT DOESN'T STAY ON THE WHOLE TIME, BUT IT SHOULD BE ON FOR MORE THAN A BRIEF SECONDS TOO. POST ME THE MODEL NUMBER FOUND SOMWHERE AROUND THE DOOR AND I'LL HELP FURTHER. THERE ARE THERMOSTAT/S HIGH-LIMIT SHUT OFF SWITCHES AND IF THEY ARE NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY IT WILL CAUSE DRYING TIME PROBLEMS
