Question about Whirlpool LGQ8000JQ Gas Dryer
It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 279834.
Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.
Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.
Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.
Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components will be on left. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.
Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

Sounds like your hi-limit switch is faulty and opens up(shuts off power) to the element, and in turn if you have an electronically controlled dryer its sending a false signal to the controls for the rest of the cycle,remove the hi-limit switch and replace it with an exact temp model and try that,they aren;t that expensive
