Default Amana gas dryer shuts off

I have an Amana gas dryer that's about 6 years old that has been shutting off during the dry cycle. Now it won't start at all. It had been making a buzzing sound when I started it. Any suggestions?

A bad motor would be a prime suspect....or possibly a drum support seizing up holdign the motor back from running, something caught in the fan blower holding the motor back from running.
