Gas Dryer overheating?

I have a Kenmore Elite gas dryer, model number 110.70052990. When I push start all I get is a buzzing noise and the drum doesn't turn. I checked the belt and everything looks fine. I unplugged the dryer for about an hour and after trying it again, worked fine for around 5 minutes and shut off again. What could be the problem? I had already replaced the thermister, thermal fuze, and thermastat. What's left, the motor?

sounds like the motor. the motor is part number 279787 and is around $126. but check the dryer duct is it clear make sure no birds have made a nest in it.

I was hoping it wasn't the motor. The duct is clear. At least I had another dryer in the garage. Not the best in the world but it works. Gives me time to work on the good one at my leasure. Thanks for the help.
