Amana electric dryer will not heat....LEA60AW

Everything works fine except it will not heat.
It was heating up for a few loads and then would stop and then it would heat up again.
It has now stopped heating all together.
I have cleaned all inside the dryer by going through the front bottm panel.
What else can I check?

Thanks!

Check your wall vent to make sure it's not clogged,also check the fuse on the heater box it may have blown,without the fuse the heater will not work,you can check it with an omns meter-mike

I have an Amana Electric dryer LEA60AW. The heating element was open and I replaced it. The new one shows 10 ohms and the two attached bits show 0 ohms. It still does not heat. There seems to be two...


I believe those two thermostats you are looking at are called limit switches. Both should measure 0 ohms. Sounds like you need to replace the one you're calling the black plastic molded one.

Amana electric dryer will not heat/ LEA60AW Everything works fine but no heat...have cleaned all lint from inside the dryer by taking front panel off. What else should I check.... I noticed it wouild come...


Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the heater element is out. If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow a kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

Amana electric dryer model LEA30Aw will not heat


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