Hello- The dryer may be shutting down because it senses low air flow or too much heat build-up. I would check the venting behind the dryer and make sure the flexible duct is not crimped or crushed, if it is remove it and replace (you can get this at most hardware stores). If that looks ok turn the dryer on and go outside to where the vent exits the house, the air flow should be strong. If you feel little air flow you may need to have a duct cleaning service out to get the lint build-up out, especially if the duct runs through the wall a long distance and makes many turns. You can also test if this is the issue by removing the flexible vent from the back of the dryer and running it; be aware you will get some lint in the room. If it is still shutting down you should have someone out to diagnose it, there may be a thermostat issue. Hope this helps, best regards.

Dryer stops

If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

Gas dryer won't heat with cover off

The 2 coils on the gas valve , need to be replaced . After the dryer runs for a short time , the coils get warm from the electricity going thru them . The weaker valve , shorts internally , not letting the gas go thru . After the dryer cools down , and the coils cool down , then the short will close ( giving continuity ) , until they warm up again . If you had given the model number , I would have given you the part number .

Maytag mdg6700aww gas dryer runs but heat kicks out after 5 min

You have bad coils on your main gas valve . They tend to short (open) after getting warm which cuts off the gas to the burner . After cooling , they will work again for another 5 min until shorting again . Replace the coils (2 in a kit ).
