Question about Amana Dryers
We always clean the inside vent before every load but the amount of lint which piles up under the outside vent is excessive.
Is your filter ok? small hole in it will do it. I did a video recently on repairing these:

Buy a lint brush at Walmart or other retail store. It's a long plastic bristle brush that will allow you to reach down in to the cavity of the blower intake. I always use a vacuum hose to **** up what it pulls up so it won't fall back down in.

Testimonial: "Thanks much. will give it a go. "
Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the heater element is out. If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow a kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

You didn't state if it is a gas or electric dryer. If gas the igniter element is bad, if electric the heating coils need replaced. Goodluck Google burdfrenzy
