Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

SOUNDS LIKE A RESTRICTION IN THE VENT. CHECK AIR FLOW WHERE VENT EXITS HOUSE. IF IT IS NOT STRONG, INSPECT VENT LINE BEHIND DRYER. IS IT CRUSHED OR CLOGGED WITH LINT? THIS WILL CAUSE DRYER TO SHORT CYCLE. IF VENT IS NOT CLOGGED, CHECK AIR FLOW AT BACK OF DRYER WITH VENT DISCONNECTED. IS AIR FLOW STRONG? OF NOT, PROBLEM IS WITH BLOWER.

Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.

When the filter gets blocked the dryer doesn't work.
The filter is located behind the small panel to the rear of the machine.
Remove the three screws and then the plastic panel.
The filter is located in the large black rubber gater tube which is held on by an adjustable clip.
Remove the clip by unscrewing the philips head screw and pull the tube down to remove. The filter has what appears to be a table tennis ball inside. Apparently this helps with self cleaning!
Remove the filter, clean and replace. The filter needs a little fiddling to get to sit right. Replace the gater tube and re-fit and tightend clip. Check for tightness and set the machine away and check for leaks etc. This job takes about 20 minutes.
If this doesn't solve the problem you will need to focus your attention to the heater element or thermastat located on the top of the machine behind a cast plate help on with torque screws.
Hope this helps.
