QUESTION: Dryer starts but won't stay on     model number flxg52rbs7 serial number xe01601866
I tried resetting the dryer by unplugging the unit for 5 min. It is a gas dryer. I believe it is a 2001 but I'm not sure. It was left here by previous owners of the house so I dont know much more than I've told u.

ANSWER: So basically you set the timer to a dry setting and then press start.  The drum tumbles and when you let go of the start button, the dryer stops.  Is this correct?  If so respond and I will instruct further.  If not, please be more informative so I can zero in on the problem.

Waiting to hear from you,

QUESTION: I start the dryer on any setting. I do no hold the knob I set it and let go. The dryer continues to go but only for a few seconds then shuts off. If I leave it it will cut back on but again only for a few seconds. The drum moves and I'm not sure if there's heat or not.

ANSWER: Is there any squealing noise or any kind of noise at all? How long does it take for it to start back up after it stops?  Seconds, minutes,

QUESTION: There's no squealing noise but if I set the dryer to a delicate setting it does sound like its trying to start. It take 5-10 minutes to cut back on. I've tried making the drum spin myself both ways but it doesnt start spinning on its own. When I try that it keeps clicking like its gonna start and there's a low hum but no results. I just want to try to pinpoint the problem so I know what part to try to replace. Thanks for your time.
