Question about Amana NDE2335AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore dryer that runs but dries real hot and then shuts off.If I don't open the door or shut it to off, it will come back on, I guess after it cools down. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be? I thought maybe it was the thermostst or/and element? How can I determine which one or should I replace both? Thanks

Do you have any clothes stacked on top of it? If so you are killing your dryer take everything off of it and NEVER use it for storing or stacking anything EVER. pilling the top of it makes it overheat. If this is not the fix then your thermal limit switch is bad and not doing it's job

Dryer does not heat correctly code F31


The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.

I had this same problem with my Kenmore dryer. If I left it plugged in and door shut it would eventually turn over and start up again. But now my timer is working properly but my dryer won't heat up and dry the clothes. I need help....

My Kenmore dryer keeps cutting off


Vacuum all of the air passages including the hose to the outside vent. Remove the lint filter and wash it in hot water and detergent; rinse and replace after drying. Restricted air flow may be tripping an over-temp switch.

Kenmore dryer. Heats up intensely


Hi, It's an over heating motor that's cousing the thermal switch to trip, on the motor.

Motor retails for $150.
Labor for putting it in is $90.

It might just be worth replacing it.
Sorry for the bad news :(

Best of luck.

Kenmore model 80 electric dryer won't start


sounds like you have a heating element that is touching ground somewhere ie bracket frame wall etc. possibly blew the little white fuse in the back with the 2 blue wires on it or door switch broke. but always reset the breakers just to be sure.

Dryer door pops open. leaves burn marks on clothes.


check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.

Kenmore dryer 70 Series doesn't shut off, timer continues to run


there are 2 different kinds of units made back then.
one has a push to start button that could have a stuck contact causing the unit to think you are pushing the button and want it to run again.
the other could have a stuck motor switch and thats not available separately. you would have to replace the motor. try to clean any lint out of the motor if you have that type. use compressed air to blow the lint out of the motor. it usually works to get the lint out and it can cause the switch to stick.

Auto Dry not advancing


It sounds like a timer problem since it happens during timed also. Some dryers don't have an actual moisture sensor for auto dry. They work by knowing that as long as the clothes are wet the temp won't go past a certain point. As the clothes dry it trips a thermostat that lets the timer advance. Until this is fixed DON"T trust the timer to shut off the dryer. Sometimes it won't or could leave the dryer running for hours. This has nothing whatsoever to do with fuses. There are no fuses in a dryer. Just high limit thermostats and other devices that will shut off the heat but usually not the motor.
