If there is too much air geting in from door seal or lint trap anywhere it can cause this.
Also the operating thermastat may not be shuting off when it should.
You could check the temp coing out of the vent on the back, tipicle flutuates from around 120 to 180 could be different for different machines
a food therm that goes to 200 or over

My WGD9200SQ0 gas dryer lights up in beginning for about 2 minuets then flame goes out and does not relight. What's the problem? Coils been replaced

Dryers usually have interlocks to keep things from overheating or, worse, catching on fire. You may be able to narrow it down a bit by seeing if it matters whether there are any clothes in the dryer. Most likely, the dryer thinks it's overheating, or in danger of doing so. Couple of possibilities. For anything involving disassembly or hands into any part of the dryer but the clothes tumbler, make sure you unplug the dryer and turn off the gas. No short cuts there, you can kill yourself.
  • Exhaust vent is clogged, no exit for hot damp air, too much back pressure on fan. Undo hose clamp in back. Clean lint from hose, reachable area in back of dryer, and in wall. Check outside as well, if the vent goes under your house or anywhere but right through the wall. Make sure the outside vent isn't blocked, jammed, or clogged. Some folks religiously clean their lint screen, but let the vent accumulate stuff for years.
  • Air inlet is clogged. Laundry looms accumulate lint. Sometimes that can end up drawn back into the air inlets. Make sure vent through-holes in back are clean and unblocked.
  • If you unscrew the back panel, look at the air inlet to the burner area (careful if it was just on) and clear lint.
  • The output blower motor can get clogged with lint and not actually move air anymore. You may have to do a bit more disassembly - probably a few more 1/4" hex head screws to open the fan assembly that feeds to the outlet duct. You may see a ton of lint built up between the blades. Remove it with fingers, vacuum cleaner, canned air, or the like. That will also likely help a bit.
  • There are actual sensors. You'll need to look at a DIY list for how to check them with a voltmeter, but they'll fail from time to time and trip an interlock - most dryers, for safety, are built to assume the worst if one of the sensors fails, to make sure a sensor failure doesn't lead to destroyed clothes or fires.
Good Luck!

What can I do for a hotpoint dryer when it over heats?

Usually, it's because the venting is plugging up with lint.

On mine when I get the overheat light, I undo the ducting from the back of the dryer.
Run the hose from my shop vac (wet or dry vacuum) as far as I can up the duct tubing, and the dryer exhaust duct (in back of the dryer). Then I reverse the vacuum and blow through both, and finish with vacuuming again.
Every 2 years or so it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the exhaust ducts cleaned, as lint build-up is the number one cause of dryer fires!

How do I remove odors from this dryer?

Probably build up of dust and lint inside cabinet. You need to unplug dryer, remove back panel and vacuum out lint. If excessive lint found, would indicate insufficient cleaning of lint filter or restricted outflow vent or hose. If odour is electrical smell or burning plastic check all electrical connections and insulators for signs of browning or overheating. Strong pungent smell could be motor winding overloading or burning out. Will need electrician.

My dryer is heating fine but there is no air blowing out of the vent. Therefore, clothes are not drying properly. I have cleaned the lent filter, checked the outside and and inside vent for clogs or...

run the dryer with the vent hose off, if it drys correctly then it is in the vent tube. The best way to clean the vent hose is with a leaf blower, now if it is not drying with the vent hose off then you will need to disassemble the dryer, and clean from the bottom of the lint trap back to the back of the dryer with a brush(paint) and a vacuum:

I have had this elect dryer for about 3 years. Same prob from the start.. Takes forever to dry any load of clothes.. Litterally 4 plus hours to dry 5 bath towel and 6 or 7 wash cloths.. this is...

Long drying times can commonly be the result of improper or restricted venting.

Examine your vent hose. How long is it? Too many bends?

Check to make sure your vent hose is clear and free of an restrictions.

If vented outside, is the flap opening properly and free of lint buildup and is the hose clear?

Pull your dryer away from the wall and disconnect the vent hose, use a vacuum or brush to clean out the inside of the hose, sometimes shaking the hose a bit (if possible) will free any lint buildup that your vacuum or brush may have missed.

Don't overlook cleaning out the pipe that the hose connects to on the back of the dryer.

Lastly if you have a lint filter that's on the top like mine, remove the lint filter and check for obstructions there, use a lint filter brush and clean well, this is often overlooked and a major cause of poor drying, overheating, or fire.

Dryer stops(over-heats) after approx. 30 min.

This is usually caused by poor airflow. Check for lint buildup in yout vent and around your lint filter. Vacuum any buildup out of the vent and the outside flapper vent. Flexible vent hoses can also get clogged. If you find build up around your lint filter don't use sharp objects to clear obstructions. Without a model number am only giving common reasons. why there are overheating problems. If you dryer has a belt driven blower it could be a worn belt bearing or pulley. Good Luck I think you can solve this one yourself.

Lint filter sensor with Error Code: 01 constantly comes on after the dryer is in use for 5minutes or less. Screen is clean, vent from back of dryer to 3ft of flex hose to outside wall is spotless.

Sounds as though the sensor is dirty of faulty. I would recommend having a service tech out to check and replace. Also if the sensor is going bad, it may be tripping it due to the excessive heat.
