Question about Amana DLE330RAW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer My dryer just stopped working. It dried a load of pants and then when I try to use it later that night it was completely dead. It just won't turn on--the plug is fine and the circuit breaker for that room works. It seemed to have a slight burning smell. My dryer is almost 10 years old. Would it be cheaper to just buy a new one rather than pay for a service tech?

Open dryer's cover and look that the belt is OK and in place (over the tub and the motor) Try to find out from where the burning smell comes from. Does the motor spin ? Let me know with your results and I will do my best to assist you with your problem.

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

My drier was on the sensor cycle and was supposed to run for 54 mins. It was still drying over 2 hours later and the display showed there were 42 mins remaining in the cycle. The clothes were completely...


More than likely the temperature sensor has gone bad. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the dealer...otherwise you need to replace the sensor.

Low heat output


A clogged or partially clogged vent . Especially if vents up thru the wall . If it vents straight out , make sure you have good air flow to the outside . Make sure the vent hose has no sharp kinks also . Try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the dryer . If clothes dry fine , that tells you the problem is elsewhere . Normally , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . A heat for a few minutes then stops heating but continues to run complaint ,would be bad coils on the gas valve .

Dryer is not heating air


Sounds like the heating element or coil is out, but it could also be the board to. At any rate, if your not getting any heat what so ever, its more than likely electrical and its best to take it in. If it gets some kind of heat, then you might try cleaning out your dryer vents really good, and also in the dryer. Hope this helps.

Dry cycle


Try setting the washer dial to the stop setting at the end of setting number 4 then set the dryer timer and turn on the machine.  This works for mine to get the dryer to run by itself.  It should begin about 30 seconds later, when the door locks.  Hope this helps.
