Question about Amana Dryers
If you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.
The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.
in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.
set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,
if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.
Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.
A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.
