"Cat" noises in a dryer are usually related to a faulty set of drum support rollers or an idler pulley. You can visit www.repairclinic.com, for a complete parts list and disassembly diagrams if you are going to attempt a DIY repair. Always remove the dryer from its power source BEFORE attempting repairs.

If your sure it is getting gas, then the problem is with the gas valve. There are 2 coils mounted on top of the gas valve and they are either shorted or open. In either case they need replace.
Simple job, just remove both wire connections, then the bracket is held on with one screw. Remove the bracket, and the coils will lift right off. Very common problem.
P.S. When purchasing the dual coil kit, if the Amana seems pricey, check with the counterman and ask for the Whirlpool kit. It's identical except for the part number.
The rollers are an obvious solution. You'll have to inspect them first. The belt tensioner is another item, and in rare cases the blower wheel attached to the motor.

It depends on the noise. It could be a drum roller going bad, the idler pulley, or even something caught in the blower wheel. Can you describe the noise?

Testimonial: "I found the expert's diagnosis very helpful. In my case I decided I better call a repairman since I cannot disassemble my gas dryer."
Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.
