Hello, im having trouble with my Amana gas dryer Model ALG643RBW.  It shuts itself off after 5 minutes into a drying cycle.  We've cleaned out the vent which was clogged with lint but it is still shutting itself off.  The clothes are hot.  What could be wrong?  Also does anyone know how to open up the bottom of the dryer to look inside? any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Completely disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and re-run it, see if you note any difference in heating behavior.

Absotootly you can change out this motor with a new one! Fortunately, these dryers (unlike their washers) are a peach to work on. Here's the link to your motor:

A little Update:   To make a long story short, the motor has a 5 yr warranty and my dryer is only 3 yrs old.  :bananadance:     So i'm scheduled for service tomorrow morning.  

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to my aid so quickly.  I will keep this site in my favorites because you guys were SUPER!

Thanks again,

Yve
