Question about Amana ALE643RB Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer runs hot and a little louder

I have a KitchenAid electric dryer, and for the last week it has run very hot, and you can smell the dryer like the hose isn't connected. The hose is connected and you can feel it blowing through the outside vent. It also runs a little louder, sounds like it it trying to push air. Please HELP.

Mid-tone loud hum while dryer is running. drum is turning...you can hear the clothes falling inside. They dry well. It is just that hum that came last week, and is now louder than it was.


HI- if everything is operating ok it could be that the dryer cabinet is just getting loose somewhere. When its running try pressing on the top, sides and back to see if you can get it to stop. There could also be something in the blower wheel that is causing imbalance and the hum. Less likely is a motor issue. Good luck

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.


Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

Dryer started out squeeling and now is making loud sounds?


This is very likely due to bad drum support rollers which is really not a difficult repair on these dryers.

Dryer smells hot


hi ,

run a load in fluff no heat and see if the smell develops again, if it does then I would suspect the motor or belt. generally most dryers are serviceable from the rear, the whole back panel usually, make sure you unplug it of course. make sure your not overloading your machine with clothes. It should never be more than half full ever. a slipping belt causes a burnout smell like when a car spins its tires at the races, if thats it you might need a new belt or your idler pulley may need to be bent a little so the belt runs tighter, study it
