Amana electric dryer model LEA30Aw will not heat

My Amana elctrice dryer stopped heating up. The unit runs fine, but not heat. We cleaned out the filter and the dryer hose, but to no avail. I was wondering if it could be the heating element, or thermostat?

The heating element measures 10 Ohms at 68 degrees farenheit. Usually if the element is bad, it will measure infinity.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Not drying my cloths . runs but there is no heat


Since the unit will run but won't heat...

The following are things that could stop an electric dryer from heating:

bad heating element(s)
loose, corroded or burnt wire(s)
thermostat(s)
thermal fuse ( not all models )
motor heat switch
timer
selector switch

The older the unit the more likely it's heating elements or thermostats

Sorry....this can take some time to diagnose

Blowing high limit fuses


Check the blower wheel attached to your motor.
It may be free-wheeling causing too high a temp thet is blowing the fuses.
