Amana Dryer Model # NED4500VQO won't start

Hi, my dryer will not start on, but however, you can feel the heat coming off the heating element when you turn the dial. I checked the door switch and start button, they are good.

See the following steps and fix it. God bless you

. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Hi, i have an amana dryer that the timer and the heating element quit at the same time.could the heating problem be coming from the bad timer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

I think you have a failed cycle thermostat. The cycle thermostat provides power to the timer to advance the clock and the heating element. If the thermostat has failed it will not heat or advance the timer. Usually when just one side of the thermostat fails the timer will advance but the dryer will run and not shut off. There may a wiring problem on the C terminal of the cycle thermostat. (Burned / got hot / wire itself failed from heat )

If you can provide a model number I can probably locate he replacement parts information for you and possibly a wiring diagram.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My amana dryer wont put out heat. I've taken the heating element off but it doesnt look broken anywhere. I changed the fuse on the element 2 months ago because it wasn't putting out heat


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Probably the heater element. You need to pull the back of teh machine off and check the heating element for continuity. If its open then its shot.
These are parts that normally go bad.
Check on ebay these can be had for less than 50.00

Accessing the heating element


I have a ALE643RB Amana dryer and believe the heating element has went out because the dryer will not heat anymore. I have taken the control panel off the top and all the screws out on the back and the bottom edge, but am still not able to get the shell off the dryer. How do you get to the heating element?
