Dryer shuts off prematurely. When I try to restart, it just buzzes. After an hour or 2 it restarts, but shuts down again after 20-25 minutes.

It is overheating for some reason , make sure the filters are clean and the dryer is not close to any wall. make sure the drum is free to turn and not binding.

If it happens during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor could be faulty.

If it happens during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat may be faulty. A faulty operating thermostat can fail to turn the heaters off and allow the dryer to get too hot. When this happens, the high limit thermostat will turn off the machine. After it cools down, it will start again.
