It is going to be either the igniter for the gas or the heating element
you probably have an electric igniter. it is not igniting the gas to make the dryer heat i would definantly start with that

Dryer runs for about 5 minutes then shuts off the clothes are hot

Your vent may be obstructed causing the dryer to trip, once it cools down it will reset itself. The way to see if thats the problem is to disconnect the vent and run the machine, if it doesn't shut off, you will need to clear the vent.

Dryer is not hot. there is no heat coming out

A couple of quick things to look at.
1, Make sure the gas valve is on and there is a gas supply.
2, If the vent duct is not clean or restricted, the vent sensor will not allow the burner to ignite, also make sure the burner exhaust vent is clear. Any restriction of the air inlet or exhaust will cause the burner to not function.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
Good luck.

Dryer heating to warm but not hot takes hour to dry clothes

Hi, First thing to check is the venting to the outside. If the vent is clear, please let me know if this is a gas or electric dryer so I can assist you further.

Whirpool Dryer......

GAS or Elect. does not make a diffrence 95% of drying too long problems are from a clogged vent try to run a normal load with the vent off the the back letting the hot air into the house if it drys normal then you need to clean out the venting going to the outside If you are worried about the lint blowing inside you can put an old pantiehose over the vent to catch the lint dust
