    The first question that screams to be asked is why you replaced your last dryer. It's quite possible you got rid of your last dryer for a problem in the house and not the dryer. The obvious and most likely cause is an electrical problem in your household dryer circuit. Dryers aren't susceptible to "moving" problems. Check for 240V between the two outside terminals at the wall outlet and 120V between each left-to-center and right-to-center terminals. If you attached a cord it may be that you hooked it up wrong. If these things don't solve your problem, come back with full model number from inside door.

Dryer cuts out

Either a bad motor or power problem . If dryer has been there for a while and worked fine , then motor is bad . If dryer has recently gotten there , check the cord to make sure it's connected properly , and the wall receptical has 240 volts where it should be ( both 1/2 " straight terminals ) The " L " is ground .

I have a Kenmore Series 90 gas dryer. Works fine.

The only source of a gas leak from inside the dryer itself is the gas valve. They can sometimes leak a little gas when you first turn the gas on after hooking it up. If your gas pressure is normal (and I'm guessing the plumber checked it) and your other gas appliances are working properly, the dryer gas valve is faulty and should be checked by a qualified appliance servicer.
