Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

If the dryer is starting and heating at first and then quits heating and keeps running then coils are faulty and need replacing.

The coils are located on the burner and just need to be unscrewed and unplugged and then replaced in the same fashion, very easy repair.
