    my dryer is tgds740 pq1 this was the closest model # after taking off the back I can see the gas kick on and stays on for several min. long enough to get pretty hot...but then it shuts down. I checked the few sensors in the back and wiped them off...I am not sure is there a thermal coupler like in a hot water heater? I haven't turned over the dryer yet! thought I would get some input. any suggestions? thanks roxanne

You might need a new starter what's happening is when the starter heats up it won't start up again until it cools off

Try cleaning your battery terminals with a wire brush or sandpaper. You will need the proper wrench for this precedure. Retighten & start. If this fails, try taping the starter with a screwdriver. Sometimes this will free up a sticking starter selinoid. If this fails you may need a new starter. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Check routing of fuel lines (too close to heat source like muffler, catalytic converter - check for missiong heat shield around exhaust). Sounds as you are having a fuel vapor-lock.
Could be ignition position sensor coil (not ignition coil) but not so likely.

What is everything? does just the engine stops running, or does the heater fan and headlight stop too, does the the radio and parking lights stop working? does the starter engage after it stops? If you answer this question I will be able to help you.
