Probably the door switch. Is it closing tightly? Open the door and look at the switch, is it loose or any signs of problems. Try putting some tape on the edge of the door where it makes contact with the switch and see if it makes better contact.

Dryer starts and immediately shuts off


Hello sdbruflodt- First, try resetting the unit dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and if it proves to be ineffective then typically this is something that a professional would need to diagnose. Since it is such a complex unit, there are multiple possible causes; faulty power cord, house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

First, The most common part would be the over limit safety, it will be mounted to the element housing. Second, there is a thermal fuse usually a small disk with a little fuse inside. You can find these (with your model no.) at www.Repairclinic.com .Good luck.

Dryer will run for about 20 minutes then it cuts off.


Are you able to restart the Amana dryer right back up when it shuts down? If you can, there is a short issue. If you have to wait a few minutes and you might even hear a faint click, then it will start, your motor needs replaced.....If Ic an help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,
