Here in Seattle Power was out for week power came on water pump in washer broke, Sears said they could make it out in Ten days wife thought it might be a little long to wait and had a lower desire to go to coil laundry, so grabed my tools and riped into it and fixed that problem no sweat. Dryer has been taking a long time to dry clothes (ongoing problem just been a little lower on the honey-do list to fix) so I figured now that I have one successful laundry appliance repair under my belt to tear the dryer apart and fix it.

First when I removed top and rear panels, noticed a huge amount of lint build-up 1"-1.5" covering all surfaces with about the top 1/4" having a nice char to it (I think to call my insurance agent and make sure homeowners policy is up to date) after removing all lint removed duct work from lint trap to blower, and burner to drum cleaned and reinstalled. Had a metal flex duct to wall replaced that with alum. hard ducting. Grabed the tech instructions and reviewed diagnosis instructions and check various componets found one gas coil not within torerance so ordered Gas Valve solenoid Coil kit and figured while in the thing I would replace Thermistor and Disposable Thermal fuse. I checked the auto dry sensor(s) when in diagnostic mode came back with 03 manual say it passed.

By the way ordered parts from RepairClinic with 2 day DHL shipping got parts in three days after 6 phone calls to DHL, they suck! (DHL that is).

So now I put the dryer back together, less from panel, and start drying clothes well now dry times are on 160 minutes per load, still think I may have problem. I can see ignitor glow and flame comes on but will only stay on for 2-4 seconds the goes out. Also now I am seeing lint in the bottom part of unit, I understand some may get down there but after only a few loads still should be almost none right?

I like replacing parts and working on my dryer, as I have nothing better to do and my wife thinks it is great not having a dryer that works, which parts should I replace next?

All of this points to an air flow problem from the dryer to the outside, try it with the vent hose off of the dryer, if it works properly need to address the dryer vent in the home...the burner will  shut right back off if there is any blockage of air flow in a gas dryer.

How long should the normal burn cycle be? a few seconds or minutes?

The burner cycles by temperature, not time. Generally, the burner kicks in at 145F and cuts out at 165F.
