Question about Amana Dryers
The dryer seems to get hot because when you open the door the heat pours out, but the clothes just don't seem to ever get dry on the first pass. You've got to run them through 3 or 4 times before they get dry.

In light of everything you checked, it sounds like you have a bad set of coils on the gas valve. When they go bad, it can take a long time between cycles. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "thanks-the hunt continues"
If your dryer is heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some items to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:
The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER (if it is different from the one you listed this question under), so I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope you find this information is helpful.
NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat beginning to fail.

I have an amana electric dryer. Changed out thermal fuse and cleaned out vent. Thermal fuse is blown again, but I noticed that it is not cycling. The dryer is very hot on the outside on top.
