Question about Amana DLE330RAW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Will run for about 1 min then stops

The dryer will turn on and run for about 1 min. then it sounds like it is getting bogged down and stops. It will restart but it does the same thing. I took off the front panel and checked the lint trap and blower fan and didn't find anything. Any other suggestions?

Re: Will run for about 1 min then stops

Might be that the Drum is stuck, can you turn it by is possible that the drum has just got stuck, or maybe you have a drive belt problem . I hope this helps

My roper dryer starts runs few min. Then stops

ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle.

Dryer stops

If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

My Frigidaire electric dryer GLER341AS2. The

Does it shut down completely? If it does, and the timer ceases turning, your problem may be a blocked vent pipe or Lint buildup.Your high limit switch is designed to kill power to your heater coils and sometimes the motor in case of overheat.

Dryer runs for about 3 min. then shuts off. Its not the reset. Let it sit for a few min. and the power comes back. Stop is flashing on panel.

have you cleaned the filter, so dryers stop if the dryer filter needs to be cleaned, also when you pull it out, clean underneath the filter, down in the dryer, lint gets down in there after a may help.....good luck.....

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.

Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.
