My dryer starts, runs a few minutes, doesn't heat up and shuts itself off

check your sensors on the heater unit, there are two or more, simply us a meter and make sure power is on both sides of the sensor, if not then that specific sensor is bad and you should replace it, pull the sensor and tie the two wire together to see if it will heat, if it does replace the sensor they are cheap and will keep you from burning down the house

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.

Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.

The machine does not heat. stops after few minuets and gives the error code F:09

if its a bosh then its famous the fault is a signal code sent to the heating element to shut of as the machine needs its filter cleaned out then you must bush the small red reset button on the back panal (removed) it will fire up again and work fine

let me know if you need further advice

Gas dryer runs for 30 mins then shuts off.

This is a common problem that is not a good one. But the motor is goin bad. If you try to start it you will hear like a hum then start. Motor is going bad and over heating and shutting down on overload. Sorry. Hope this helps.

Heat goes off after a min. in use. Whirlpool Model # LGR4634JQ2. Took apart back and cleaned exhaust.

if it's gas it could be that the pilot is not close enough to the gas sensor and when the drier is in motion the extra air motion shuts it off.
if its elect it could be that one of the fuses are not set shut both fuses down and turn them BOTH back on
Gas clean the elect pilot and be sure it is close to the sensor that looks like a little tube
