There are safety sensors that will break the current when it gets too hot or if the sensors themselves are failing. This will shut the dryer off or make it quit heating. After cooling down or at random times the sensor may make connection again allowing the dryer to work. These can only be checked out using an OHM meter and must be checked when they are not allowing the dryer to run.

Sounds like the timer is going bad and it needs to be replaced. The time is located behind the knobs.

SOURCE: Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed

It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.

SOURCE: Electric Dryer Won't heat. Model Number LE8407W2.

I would replace the whole heater assembly. From the model number given, you can get the whole heater assembly for under $42. That's the element, thermal fuse, and the limit thermostat. Here is the link to the part. This is the best place for appliance parts. This is the part number AP4072871

Stop button doesn't work on Amana NED7200TW Electric Dryer.


Check the door switch to see if it "clicks" when you push and release it. If it clicks, then the control board will need to be replaced. Here is the part you will need to order.

Hello PB,

What i would most suspect as being the problem of why the dryer just stops randomly before the cycle is done,is a problem with the door switch or the door catch...does the dryer restart as soon as you restart it?? if yes i would check that the door catch was broken so the door will pop open stopping the dryer. Also check the door switch using a meter set to measure ohms and see if the contact is burnt ( a good door switch will be zero ohms resistiance)

It is possible that you could have a bad breaker in the panel. They will start to trip randomly when they are going bad. If not the dryer is drawing too many amps and the breaker is doing it's job. If the heating element is defective and drawing extra juice that could trip the breaker. Usually replacement breakers are not too expensive if you electrical panel is less then 20 years old and can be purchased at most home improvement stores. I would try replacing the breaker before you try repairing the dryer. If you install a new breaker and the problem continues to happen then you should check the dryer heating element. That component is what draws the most amps and would be the most common one for tripping the breaker.
