Thanks for the reply. 

 

Well it seems OK now. Weird because I didn't do anything. The flame lasts several minutes at a time now. The load is taking less time to dry, probably on par with what's expected.

Using search I found this thread today. I just changed the gas valve solenoids and no change. BTW my symptoms were exactly as the OP. The flame looks very full at first. The hot air blowing out of the grille inside the dryer feels super hot. It closes down after several seconds and repeats every interval similar to the OP. I didn't time it. The dryer has sat in this spot with this vent for about 13 years with no issues. The vent is blowing strongly out of the house. If it were a vent issue then why was it OK for 13 years then suddenly unacceptable? I have not yet tried it without a vent attached. Is there another component to change, there's some component right on the top of the burner chamber that must be some temp sensor.

 

BTW the vent method I have might be questionable to a professional but I have little choice and I have tried to optimize it:

It's that rectangular cross section periscope one. The cross section is about 2"X6" and has 4" round inlet and outlet. The hole in the house is directly behind the dryer but of course not in line with the dryer's outlet. The dryer must be that close to the wall because it's in a laundry closet of finite depth.
