    LE8317W2 Amana Dryer making loud noises

    My Amana home dryer LE8317W2 is working but once it gets going for about 5 min it starts making a really loud kinda growling/droning noise. Any thoughts on where I should start first if I attempt to repair it myself? I've attached a video I hope the sound comes through.

    Dryer runs for 10 minutes, stops, buzzes

    Over the past few weeks some issues have come up. The first; the dryer starts, runs, and heats but will stop after 10 minutes.
