The chamber is most likely over heating and tripping off the gas valve which is doing what it's suppose to. If the exhaust duct or vent damper outside is plugged up with lint it will cause this problem. Try disassembling the complete exhaust vent & vacuum it out.

I HAVE A MAYTAG ATLANTIS GAS DRYER STOPS HEATING ABOUT 5 MINUTES IN


the flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.

Maytag Atlantis MDG7600AWW Not Heating


the gas coils have a problem. as the dryer heats p the coils on the gas valve are failing causing the dryer not to heat. replace the coils and you should have no problem
