Question about Frigidaire FGQ332ES Gas Dryer
I have a similar issue (gas dryer), my dryer starts fine & heats up for 5 minutes or so, but then there's a clicking/rattling sound & the heat stops (the air & tumble keeps going). I'm thinking there's a faulty sensor, but don't know how to test it. Any ideas?

Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.

Because the dryer is running, but not heating, it sounds like the element. The rattling could be a part of the element that was weak and then broken during the move.
Inspect the element by taking off the back cover [unplug first] and remove the section of the flue-like piece that goes from bottom toward top at angle. The element is the spiral wire that runs inside that larger aluminum section.
Be sure to remeber where the 6 or 8 wires were connected. Grab a digital camera before removing the wires.
If you need an element, it comes with that aluminum section in a large box--not just the curly wires.
I've seen bad elements with breaks that could only be found by continuity testing and some that are obviously burnt in 2 or more places. I've also seen them ground out by a metal bone from a woman's bra. The move and the rattling--I'd check the element.
You have to remove the vent hose before removing the back cover. Be careful not to damage it. The cover can be a pain to reseat and fit around the vent housing at the same time--depending on work space. With part and tools in hand, 1 1/2 hours for a casual DIYer.

i had the same problem after it tripped the fuse i looked in the dryer where the cloths were and saw that there was a buildup of steam in the drum. i then realised that because i was using the dryer in a very cold outhouse in the winter the water in the cloths was condensing too fast for the machine to process, this in turn caused a a backup of steam in the drum which backed up so much that the heating elements shorted out and caused the fuse to trip out. i hope this helps. after moving the dryer to a warmer part of the house i have had no problems.
