If I can get help to diagnose this problem will be great and save me
from calling in an appliance repair person at $120 an hour. It is a
gas dryer that starts up but cuts off a minute later. What part/
setting should be checked out?
I agree . As a simple first check , see that any lint filter is clean
and the exhaust stack is clear.
On my old gas dryer there was a vent for the gas heater and an air
exhaust for the dryer compartment.
There may be a sensor that says the burner is running. If that fails
or is out of position the gas gets shut off because it believes it
failed to ignite.

The reference to the dryer vent is the pipe that is hidden in the wall
and terminates either through the roof, or through a side wall.
I have lots of customers that call me because of this very problem.
If you cannot clean this yourself, call a chimney sweep who is
certified in this area.

Go to the manufactures web site and see if you can pull up a diagram to see
the construction of your dryer
I would suspect a blocked duct of bad heat sensor. Mice like them this time
of year You can disconnect from dryer and run a garden hose with a small rag
taped to it . if you have any elbows check them first
