Try looking at your door switch and also your thermal fuse on blower.it is white in color and has 2 wires going to it. black cener stripe you can put those 2 wires together and wrap with electrical tape.make sure dryer is unplugged before attempting/then plug back in and see if it works.

Stop running,no door light or motor running.


Check panel for tripped breaker. Check with a volt meter that you have 2 legs of 125v to back of dryer. See youtube for demonstration of testing. Can you hear the timer run? It is pretty quiet, but is a ticking noise.

Dryer will not start


It is possible that the door switch is defective. Switch is on inside of front panel. If so you have to dismantle dryer to remove switch.This switch will prevent motor from starting. Is timer running? You should be able to hear small motor running near timer. If not, make sure 240 volt breaker is not tripped. Dryer motor and timer only run on 120 volts and heating element uses 240 volts. So, if one side of 240 volt circuit is dead it may be the side of the circuit that powers motor. Try flipping breaker off and on again. If possible, check circuit with volt meter ONLY if you know how to. If not, get a tech to check out.

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

Dryer will run for about 20 minutes then it cuts off.


Are you able to restart the Amana dryer right back up when it shuts down? If you can, there is a short issue. If you have to wait a few minutes and you might even hear a faint click, then it will start, your motor needs replaced.....If Ic an help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,

Timer motor keeps running on dryer


sometimes as a timer gets older the timer motor will get a little loud. timer motors run even when the door is open. if the timer advances to off and everything works fine you don't need to worry about it.

Amana LEA60AW dryer problem??


Check the door switch to see if it is engaging. This will shut down the motor. I usually do this with a plastic ink pen to see if I hear a clicking.
