OK, with the dryer running, put your hand behind the vent and tell me how much air is blowing out. Common with this model is the blower breaks or wears out where it goes on the shaft. It sounds like you're not getting enough air flow and the flame is being concentrated on the high limit thermostat shutting it off. Look at this break down. Which valve do you have? The top one or the lower one?
