It sounds like the timer switch motor does not "turn OFF" and keeps running through the next dryer cycle. The "Start" switch may be stuck "ON" all the time. If it is a mechanical switch, try pressing it several times to "free it up". If that doesn't work or it is solid state (electronic), it may need replacing. A meter (ohm meter) can be used to tell if it in "always ON" (near zero resistance). Be sure to remove power from the circuit (un-plug it from the wall or disconnect batterys) before using an ohm-meter.

Clothes have to be dried several times before getting dry

The first thing to do is to remove the ryers exhaust venting tubes and clean them out thoroughly. Any lint build up will cause the moister sensor to keep the heat in check. It is a saftey device to prevent home fires from clothes dryers. Just on small clog will do this. If cleaned and still no heat listen for a clicking noise upon starting. If no click is heard the Spark ignitor is at fault. If it is clicking the moister sensor is at fault

Ryer not heating

If you have 110v from the timer connection to the element and ground, that is normal. You should have 240v between the two element connections. If you do, and the element is not hot, disconnect the wires from the element and check the continuity of the element. If you don't, check back thru the wiring until you find 240v. This test will show you where the fault is.

Dryer turns off

Is the dryer shutting off completely or is the burner going on and off erraticly? If it is the burner you probably have a faulty coil on the burner. There are two electric coils mounted on the burner. You can buy both of them in a pack cheaper than buying one by itself. Remove the lower front cover and you will see the coils on the gas valve with wires going to them. Remove the wires and bracket that holds them down and install new coils. They are made so that you can't mix them up, they only fit one way.
