I plugged it into my Watt meter and was getting 7-amps when lighting and around 4-amps when just the motor was running.  It seems like the flame burns for only a short time.  I replaced the coils, and same thing.  This is a new dryer just out of warranty.  Possibly the flame sensor?

Access flame and make certain it is drafting up the flue enough so as the high limit thermostat isn't cutting out. Check venting(snow pile build up outside in front of hood perhaps) or restricted in some other way. Blower housing may  have a garment  caught restricting the air flow.  Poor air flow equals poor flame equals premature cut out.
