Dryer starts, then stops, no heat

My dryer is about 6months old. I run regular loads in it, never anything like rugs, etc.. Yesterday after about 10-15min. the dryer stopped and the lights that indicate what part of the cycle it is on (dry, cool down, etc.) all blink in unison continuously until the pause/cancel button is pushed. I also noticed that it seems as though there is no heat. Please Help.

Will not heat

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Whirlpool Dryer won't start

You probably had been using the dryer alot today. As long as the motor was running there was enough air flow over the motor to keep it just cool enough to allow it to continue to run. When you stopped the dryer the heat tripped the thermal protector in the motor. Let it sit an hour or so and it should restart. The motor is probably coated in dryer lint, and / or the motor bearings are getting bad. If you space your drying loads out a bit you can get by for a long time without having to do anything.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer - Model LGB6200KQ1 Serial # mm2105815 Heat comes and goes. Can heat fine for a few loads then stops. Then starts again. Any ideas

Sounds like it is running Hot, Clean you venting out and make sure the weather hood outside is not blocked.

Vacuum out the lint filter area.

Your dryer also may have worn seals, how old is it? 10 to 12 years running a load a day average? it may be time for a new dryer or rebuild yours.

Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.
