Dryer stop running after a few minutes. Somtimes I can start it back up and sometimes it tries to start when I push the start button but won't stay running. Before it stop sometime it will make a squeeling sound at the back of the drum.

It sounds as if you have a defective drive motor. After the motor runs for a while and heats up, the internal thermal switch cuts it off before it gets too hot and becomes a hazard. Once the motor cools down and the thermal switch makes up again, it will run and then repeat this process.

If it starts right back up after stopping there is an electrical problem maybe at the motor start switch. If you have to wait for an hour before it will start again then the problem might be that the motor needs to be cleaned of a lint build up.
Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.
First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.
The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).
I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.
The push-to-start switch is the easiest and cheapest to replace. You can check it by starting the machine then, unplug it, remove one of the wires from the switch, then plug dryer back up. Dryer should not start. If your model has an even heat board and two relays under the console, your problem could be with them if switch is not bad. Reply back if you need to know how to check them.
dryer starts, runs for a few minutes, then shuts itself off and not hot inside the drum
