Flame for a minute then shuts off

So a week ago the dryer started heating for a minute or two than shutting off. I got on this site and started doing extensive research after replacing the thermal fuse hoping that was the issue. I immediately noticed extensive build-up of lint everywhere. I disassembled the entire dryer so that I could give it a good cleaning and hoped for the best, same thing. Then from there I started to check continuity on everything. Thermostats good, flame sensor good, igniter good (150ohms), gas coils seem to test good. I have the entire dryer in pieces. Well needless to say I still kept coming back to the coils so I went and got the two out of my parents dryer and installed them and exact same result. What should I try next???? I have no venting hooked up to the dryer so I dont believe there is an air flow issue anymore but I am out of ideas...ANY and all ideas or suggestions are appreciated...I am about to just buy a new one! :( Thank you in advance to all for any help...I can attach pics if necessary.

This not another gas coil issue... here are my numbers to prove the exsisting ones are fine. 55 views and no help? Com'on help out the noob! :)

What am I missing? Numbers seem to be within specs I was given...high temp thermostat next?

Gas coils Ω readings: Exsisting 2 prong ohm reading at 1275Ω Exsisting 3prong 1/2=1365Ω 1/3=553Ω
New coil readings: 2prong=1267Ω 3 prong 1/2=1373Ω 1/3=572Ω
