The dryer runs, the tumbler works and the dryer heats up. It will run for about 5 minutes then it stops. If I push the "Start" button it will not stat again but if I wait for a while the "Start" button will start again and run for about 5 minutes. What is the issue??

Re: Dryer runs for 5 minutes then stops
Look in the vent line for a small disk shaped overload with two wires coming out of it. it may be bad. also check for a lint build-up in the exhaust line out of the blower. check the damper outlet going out of the house for a build-up of lint.

In your dryer behind the tumbler there are coils with insulators. up against the dryer wall their should be many holes that allow the heat to come into the tumbler. run your dryer about 3 minutes with settings on heat , then open the door and peer thru to the back while the tumbler is spinning. if you don't see part or full radiat heat. the heating coils will have to be replaced. you can purchase them from most appliance parts store. just make sure you provide the brand and model # and possibly the ser#. good luck!
