The machine must be repaired, most of the repairs below require a technician.

Check thermal fuse at the back and ensure that the door is closing well.

Check if the fan is working , if it is not working test and eventually replace fan assembly.

If the fan is ok check if the heating element is working, eventually test it with a multimeter.

Test also the thermostat and eventually have a look at the door latch.

If the machine still does not get hot , and all tested part are fine, then replace the control assembly.

If you need a technician ring the number listed on the owners manual.

Amana Gas dryer runs but ingniter won't glow and gas valve won't open


That means no power is getting to the gas assembly. The number one suspect would be the fuse which mounts directly on the blower housing right next to the control thermostat.
