Question about Amana DLE330RAW Electric Dryer
First unplug your dryer. You will need a 5/16 or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the rear panel. Also, you will need to detache the vent. Once the back is off, toward the bottom you will see your element. Attached to the housing where the element is there are one or maybe even two safety switches. A.K.A. overloads. Obviously one of them or both if you have two are weak. You should be able to replace them at an appliance parts store where you purchased your thermal overload. To test them, you can place your an ohm meter across the terminals for continuity. If you catch it when it goes out and work quickly, you maybe able to isolate which one it is. Careful to unplug the dryer to avoid being shocked. Good luck.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
