Question about Amana Dryers
SOURCE: Intermitten Heat up
I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

most times this is due to a lint backup some where in the shaft leading out of the house.ecpecialy ifit vents out verticaly.you can use a compressor with a blowgun in most cases to solve this.

I have, for the 2nd time in 2 years, replaced the gas valve coils on my Amana dryer. Usually, intermittent (inconsistent) heat or no heat is caused by bad gas valve coils. They are one of the most common parts to fail and cost between 35 and 40 dollars for a valve coil kit and are easy to replace yourself. Remove the front of the dryer (or the bottom front panel, in some cases) and locate the gas valve. It is near the front, in most cases. There is a plate, held with 2 bolts, holding the coils on top of the gas valve. Remove the bolts and the plate, disconnect the coil wires from each coil and slide the coils off. Then place the new coils on top, hook up the wires, replace the retainer plate, and you should be back in business. Take note of which coil sits on which part of the gas valve. On my dryer, one coil has a 2 prong connector, and the other has 3 prongs. This should make it easy to determine which is which.
