You will probably have to open it up from the top and/or back. If the belt looks alright (it probably won't, though), check the belt tensioner. Carefully observe how the belt goes on and around the tensioner before replacing.

2 screws at the bottom of front panel if no screws there, then pry top off with wide flat screw driver then look inside toward top of front panel remove two more screws and the front should lift right out then remove screw/s in center of drum and lift out of cabinet there should be your heat element

SOURCE: My Amana LE8317W2 works for 10-20 minutes then stops. There is a slight burning smell. It wont restart until it cools and when it does restart, it seems to take a lot more energy to get the drum rolli

Make sure your vent is clear of lint from inside the unit and to the termination point outside.

probable broken heater element. you can call a repair service or pick up a new element at a retail a/c appliance store using the make and model number from inside the door and have a neighbor/friend/ you trust fix it with basic tools.

My Amana Electric Dryer will not heat up. Model# LE8317W2. We have cleaned out the machine and the vent. I will be purching a heater element (as recommended) is that easy to replace? IS there anything else...


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it.Here is a video for the element replacement.Here is a video for the thermostat replacement.

My dryer is making a loud siren type noise and the drum turn is kind of clanky sounding too. It is producing heat and drying but I am concerned that something is wrong. I have an Amana LE8317W2 electric...


You will need to remove the top of your dryer and inspect the belt tensioner. If the idler roller has a bad bearing and sticks the roller will get a flat spot causing the noise you are hearing

I have an Amana model NDG7800AW. A few weeks ago


The roller to the belt tensioner is binding causing to make the warbling noise.The bearing needs to be replaced which comes with the roller. A new belt is advisable as well when replacing. The stalling problem could be also from the belt being stretched or the timer relay is weak
