Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer
I'm running out of options. Gas heater cuts off after about 10 minutes. Have thoroughly cleaned all vents (in dryer and out of house). Have replaced both hi-limit (on heating element) and cut-off (on blower) switches with brand new parts. After gas burner stops working, it looks like electric pilot is still cycling on (seeing a slight glow). Hearing a soft clicking noise - not sure if that is pilot starting or valve controlling gas. Any thoughts on what else a DIY could do - or what it might cost to fix this if it's major? Thanks in advance for the help.
When I had no heat I changed the thermal fuse. You reach it from the back and is held in by 1 screw. It is a cheap place to start only $13. I also told someone at work with the same problem and it fixed the problem.

Most likely a faulty thermocouple. The gas will get turned off if the themocouple does not sense the pilot light.
