Clean the vent to the outside. That is the most common start to ALL Dryer problems. Clogged vent causes the dryer to overheat

Is it a long vent or a short one on a outside wall? post model # so can see which dryer you have.

Exhaust temp should be between 150 to 165 usually 160 to 165. Use a meat thermometer or something like it. IO have a electronic meter with a wire probe. Take temp with vent tube off and on. If temp changes more than 15 degrees Vent problem.
