Makes a squak noise


You need to replace the dryer belt.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver
  • Amana dryer belt
  1. Step 1 Disconnect the power source from the dryer. You can unplug from the wall outlet, remove the fuse from the fuse box or flip the breaker in the panel box.
  2. Step 2 Pull off the front panel of the dryer. Remove the screw in each corner at the bottom of the dryer's front panel. Lift up the front panel until the two clips at the top disengage. Remove the two screws that are found beneath it at the corners to remove the cabinet top.
  3. Step 3 Remove the belt by releasing the tension applied by the movable idler pulley wheel. The belt loops over the drum, under the idler pulley wheel and then around the motor's drive pulley.
  4. Step 4 Discard the used belt. It is fine to just throw it in the trash.
  5. Step 5 Install the new belt by pushing in on the idler pulley arm. Make sure the new belt is placed flat along the exterior of the drum.
  6. Step 6 Replace the screws back into the dryer's front panel. Screw them in tightly so that the panel will not fall off or jiggle loose.
  7. Step 7 Reconnect the power source back to your dryer. Either plug it back in or flip the switch in the breaker box.

My amana dryer model is making screeching sound


Hi Peggy...
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley. If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. BE REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

I have an Amana ALE643RBW drum needs manual assistance to tumble


If you remove the back panel you will be able see the drum rollers. There's a good chance they may be worn out. As long as you are replacing the rollers I would suggest replacing the belt at the same time.
Typically when the rollers wear out, the drum drops ever so slightly and the drum wears on the front and rear drum to cabinet seals.The added drag can cause a slow drum and squealing noises.
Good luck, let me know if there is anything further you need.

Amana dryer does not run but i can hear the motor faintly


Sounds like the belt is either broken or slipped off the pulley. Remove the back of the dryer and find the motor. Look to see if the belt is still attached to the pulley. If not, look to see if it has slipped form the pulley and is hanging from the drum, or if it is broken. More than likely, regardless of which it is, you will just need to replace the belt.

Installing dryer belt on amana LE2910W


Please view Amana dryer belt installation diagram amana.gif Diagram A

Style: Flat with ribs
Installation Tips: Ribs face toward drum
Disconnect dryer from the power source before servicing!
In assuming that you already have the front removed, you can raise the top by removing 2-5/16" screws located in each front corner that secure the top to the side panels. Then remove th 4-5/16" screws from the bulkhead that secures it to each side panel. Then use the diagram above on installing the belt properly.

Let me know if you need any more information.
