Also check the outside vent - sometimes birds or small animals will make nests in them, or they can accumulate debris. Make sure the cover flap can open freely.

Be sure to clean the lint filter before starting the dryer - EVERY load. Use a long, narrow tube or nozzle to vacuum out the area under the lint filter.

Think of a clogged vent, congested air flow,will cause the thermostats to trip early/often .the exhaust vent in the bottom is where you start.And you may have to disassemble unit to get to the internals,fan ect.

Also check the metal strips that detect how wet your clothes are. There should be two metal strips that are on the inside of the dryer on the grill where the air passes thru to the filter. They should look clean and if they look dirty, running a pencil eraser over them can clean them up. If they don't work correctly, your dryer can't measure how damp your clothes are.

Chech your thermistor... go to a Sears Parts and Repair Center.... bring your model and Serial number with you... determine purchase date the appliance could still be in warranty.

Your exhast pipe is pluged up. You need to clean it out from the roof to the dryer and the dryer it self. remove the dryer from the wall and connect a shop vac to the pipe going to the roof, get on the roof and locate the exhast pipe for the dryer take thecap off and run a exhast brush through the pipe from the roof next go in the house and trun the shop vac on and clean up the mass, put it back toghter. This needs to be done about once a year. Good lock

Try changing your Auto Dry Level to "More" my unit seems to set it to "Medium". You may need to hold the Auto Dry Button for three seconds to unlock and change the setting.
