This should help as it sounds like it may be the coils:

Check the thermocouple it is going bad or already has and that is why the gas valve is not staying open.

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

Maytag DG 412 won't stay lit


If the dryer can be restarted within 1 minute and it starts again it's not likely the coils. It may be poor air flow causing the safety thermostat on the flame tunnel going off as a warning. If it takes several minutes off to make it start again, it's likely the coils. When they cool down the broken coil contracts and the broken ends come back together (you can't see this). The coil kit number is 12001348 for the DG412.

Be careful not to break the ignitor when you service these...it is VERY prone to breakage. Turn off gas and electricity before servicing.

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds


SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back
