Question about Dryers
Timer motor that advances the timer may be bad

If this is one of the electronic models: Clean the sensor strips located inside the drying area. As wet clothes rub against these the control monitors the resistance changes and knows the clothes are still wet therefore it continues to operate. When buildup from dryer sheets and fab softener get on them strips a barrier is formed that repels dampness. Therefore the control does not know the clothes are wet and goes to the end thinking all is Kosher. Clean them sensor strips with Windex and party on!

Check your venting. Insure it is not clogged as this can cause the unit to stick at 6min mark. Just before the cool down period.
