Question about Dryers
Have you checked yout exhaust? It must be clear and clean. If it is a plastic hose, you should consider replacing with with a flexible metal hose. Dont forget the part outside.
You should pull the machine away from the wall, remove the hose and turn the machine on. Use the AIR setting. You should experience a strong flow of air. If not, there may be a clog between the exhaust port and your lint filter.
There is the possibility your machine is clogged between the fan and the drum. If you open this little space, remember the parts you find inside are powerful yet fragile
If you do have strong air at this point, reattach the hose. Go to the other end of your hose and repeat the experiment. Look into the hose - if possible, run something though it to assure it is clear and clean. If you get good flow there, inspect the device that takes your exhaust to the out of doors. If that device is clean and clear, it may be time to call a pro to look at your machine for malfunction.
I hope this helps you.

Testimonial: "It was lint build-up ,but not in the exhaust. The sensor just after the flame, heat on it's way back up into the dryer is sensed by 2 sensors, THANKS"
Your hi-limit that shuts off power to element is more than likely bad

The number one cause of overheating is improper air flow. That is usually due to a clogged or partially clogged exhaust vent. Check the outlet, the inlet at the dryer, and the pipe itself for lint, birds nests, kinks, collapses etc. Check the lint filter and filter compartment thoroughly.
