Question about Whirlpool Dryers
This should show you a parts break down for the unit. You can also find a schematic in the console (usually about 6 1/4" screws from the back of the console). As far as your problem, overheating could be causing it. Run the unit without the vent attached and see if the problem persists. If the unit keeps running, you'll know you have a venting problem. If the problem persists, I would usually replace the gas valves (usually one goes bad and won't hold open). These would be availible from a local appliance parts store.

Tips for a great answer:
First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Then check your inlet valve. Shut off valve, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on this washer.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.
