Is the motor getting hot or is the element not shutting off?
If it is the motor then it is going bad...
If it is the element then the thermostat is bad and will just heat till the high limit shuts it down...then replace the thermostat and the high limit now that it has been activated...

here are a couple of tips that may also help you...

    This a what happened first deal... but from what you are saying I am leaning towards the thermostat going bad and shutting things down...

    I would replace that thermostat and also the high limit...

Dryer is shuting off randomly. Sometimes I cannot get it going for more than 5 seconds. What do I do?

GAS OR ELECTRIC DRYERS HAVE OVER HEAT PROTECTION COUPLERS. (looks like quater with wires). One of them is breaking down. Get the make and model number of the unit and look on the internet for the replacement part. If you can get the unit apart you will see up to three of them.

Dryer stops tumbling, but heating element stays on

Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat

Kenmore elite he dryer keeps shuting off after 15 min

Sounds like it's tripping a safety feature to prevent a fire. If it's new I would certainly return it.

Dryer starts hot surface ignitor comes on gas valve opens i get a flame 5 mins flame shuts off hot surface ignitor repeats and tries to ignite no flame after unit is off for 20 mins to 30 mins off unit...

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Gas go's on then shut off

Check the exhaust for good air flow.
Remove the rear exhaust vent and run the dryer.
If that corrects the problem repair the vent blockage.
If it does not correct the problem replace the gas valve coils.
