Dryer will heat then run for a while then shut off after a few minutes you can start-up again what is wrong.

Reach in there and turn the drum. Does it turn real easy? If it don't the you need to check the glides and rollers. Amana dryer service manual

There is a squealing noise when the dryer runs. The belt seems to work fine, but there is a whistling/squealing noise when the dryer is on

The drum rides on a pair of plastic glides in the front. They get thin and their bracket begins to rub the drum.
The rollers tend to get a little noisy in time. I use HVAC oil (zoom-oil from ace hardware) to lube them because it is temp resistant, won't disapate, and is non flammable.

Amana Gas Dryer LG3912W When dryer is turned on ignitor glows for 5-10 seoonds, then shuts off. I don't hear any opening and closing of gas valve. Is it the gas valve solenoid? Also when dryer is tumbling...

Good day,
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.

When I turn my dryer on it has a clanking sound it drys the cloths but is loud.

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Or may be an idler bracket that need to be lubricated or replaced.

If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, and the idler arm bracket with pulley.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them. If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Then check your idler arm bracket to look for wear or need of lubrication, if it is worn then it may need to be replaced.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Amana ALGO230RAW will not tumble, strong smell ?burning? not sure coming from dryer

Before taking it apart, roll the drum by hand to see how freely it spins. Then take it all apart to see if the belt has failed, and vacuum out all the lint everywhere. Check the fan area, you'll have to remove its cover too. See if the rollers need heat resistant grease, and check the front glides. If it has a center bearing, check that carefully, and the shaft it rides.

Hello, This is somewhat involved and time consuming, but if you are handy, it can be done. First unplug the dryer then start with the two screws in the hinges of the door and then the door lifts out. Two screws on the opposite side holding plastic spacers. Once these four screws are out the front panel tilts right out. The front panel will come off then 4 more holding on the front tumbler support and air duct. Removed wires from light and dryness sensor and clips holding wires to panels. Pull out the tumbler and removed belt. If your dryer gets a lot of use, then you might want to keep going and replace some more wear items while you have it apart. Remove the two drum support rollers and shafts by removing a nut on the back side of each shaft. Remove snap ring off each old shaft, install new rollers and fiber washers onto new shafts, reinstall snap ring and replaced on brackets with the old nut. Remove tension spring off idler pulley bracket and one screw holding on the bracket. Install new pulley and fiber washers on new bracket and reinstall bracket and spring. Placed new belt on tumbler and reinstalled tumbler. Used drill and bit to drill out pop rivits holding on the two front glides that are attached on the front tumbler support and installed new glides and pop riveted in. Reinstall front support and air duct checking that felt tumbler seal front and rear are in place. Placed new belt on motor pulley and idler pulley. Reinstall front panel.
