SOURCE: I have replaced the thermistor
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Amana dryer, (as you may or may not know this model is built by Samsung) and it is displaying a e5 error (actually looks like a e5 error, but it is indeed t5 but that's because of the digital display)...it is actually a "temperature sensor" error, hence the "ts".
As described in the service manual from Maytag...
"tS" Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed - The Thermistor resistance is very low.
Clogged lint screen. (remove and wash under hot water & mild soap...a old toothbrush works well for scrubbing)
Restricted vent system.
Check Thermistor resistance...10000 ohms @ 77°F/25°C
If you've replaced the thermistor already, that leaves either poor air flow due to clogged lint screen or clogged exhaust somewhere else along the line. Here's what I would suggest you try. Remove the lint filter (clean it as mentioned above) and unfasten the vent from the back/side of the dryer, whatever the case on your machine. Run it through a cycle without a load and post back with the results.
I can send you the service manual if you think it may help you move forward,(It says Maytag, but those are Amana/Samsung as well) but you'd need to provide an email address for me to attach it to. It is a "pdf" and 9.9mb in size.
I'll watch for your reply.

all there is is a belt that turns the drum,the belt goes on the motor pulley around the pulley and around the drum, check the motor pulley to see if it unattached from motor shaft or check the belt to see if it flipped over somehow,there is a smooth side and a ribbed side on the belt and you said the pulley is fine

Hi and welcome to FixYa. The symptom you describe can be caused by several things.
If the belt is getting loose the belt switch can cause it to shut down completely with no power (Item 5) This link:
Also if your dryer has a thermistor vs a thermal fuse
(Item 27) of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5176187&diagram_id=1363930#d1363930
it can also shut the dryer down when it gets too hot.
You should check all of your vent ducting from inside the dryer all the way through to the exit point on the outside wall (vent flapper) for obstructions / lint.
Also if you use dryer sheets (Fabric softener) you should clean your lint filter with white vinegar then soap and water / rinse. The particulate fromthe dryer sheets cakes onto the filter. It looks clean but willnot pass enough air.
This should give you something to go on to try and resolve the shutting down issue.
Thanks for using FixYa.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.
