When I start the dryer everything looks great. Drum turns and flame kicks in and starts drying clothes. After about 10 minutes it shuts off. It will not start back up. If you wait about 10 minutes it will start back up again. But then it will only run about 1 or 2 minutes before shutting down again. I took the back panel off and cleaned the inside out, so there was alot of lint inside, that is all cleaned out now. But still get the same problem. Any ideas on this fix. Thanks in Advance.

Re: TGDX64OEQ1 Gas Estate Dryer
Sounds like the hi-limit temp switch is sensing too high a temperature and is shutting off the dryer. This is a safety feature and is usually tripped because the outlet air flow is restricted, and resets itself after it has cooled down. Check to see whether the rest of the vent in your house is clogged and clean it. It could also be an inlet fan or blower which introduces air into the drum. If this is not working, there will be no air flow into the dryer, causing excessive heat in the non-moving air in the dryer.

Here's an idea, is your machine in a well ventilated area? Gas powered devices have oxygen sensors that detect when the oxygen level drops to a dangerous level, this shuts off the gas, but not the machine. Put a fan in the room, open the window or door and try again.
if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.
Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Consider a blocked air flow/vent problem or bad gas valve selonoids. Important to check outside vent door if present to make sure it is opening all the way. If not the dryer goes off on thermal overload. If vent is clear consider selonoids located on top of gas valve held in place with 2 philip head screws. One has a two prong electrical plug and the other has a three. Last check Lp tank for gas. Thank you
The electric dryer requires 220 volts to dry clothes but only 110 volts to turn the drum .reset your circuit breaker even if it looks ok ,if that dosent work, unplug from the wall and check where the plug wire goes into the back of the dryer and look for loose or broken wires.
make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
