Tumble dryer turns off 5 mins after starting

The most likely cause is a clogged venting system or operating thermostat. Also check to see if your dryer is hot to touch after a few minutes of operation,if so remove your vent in the back and try running the dryer without it and see if it makes a difference, good luck

Is the motor getting hot or is the element not shutting off?
If it is the motor then it is going bad...

Start/pause button not working, is it the control panel or the control electronics board?

First unplug the Dryer and allow about 5 mins to pass, this will allow the board time to reset, plug Dryer back in, if problem is still present, its possible that the touch pad is defective on the dryer, if other functions work when touched, it is the touch pad, and not the Board

Our amana gas dryer. runs for about 20 mins and shuts off. try to resart and there is busing noisefrom the controls on top. if sets for 45mins. it will start again. until it gets hot. and then wont work.

The problem is in the gas valve coils. They sit on the top of the gas valves. When these coils are energized open the gas valves and allowing the gas to burn. If one or more coil malfunctions, the dryer shuts off. It is usually difficult to properly test the coils and replacement is the best solution.
