First check you exhuast. If you have access to the vent outsid where the vent termintes the check and see if there is no lint build up or make sure nothing is block the air flow to the outside(storage caontainers or anything that will block the airflow from the dryer to the outside)..if no blockage or lint build up, then i would change you gas coil vales. they are located on you gas valve. they are 2 black looking things. But make sure when if you change them,one of them has a metal sleeve that goes on the shaft...make sure you know whick one it came from and slide it back on there..sometime when you take the old oned out, itll come off with the coil. Just take it out and slid it onto the gas valve. Like i said tho, make sure you know whick one it came off from...but yeah, try changing you gas valve coil....if its an amana dryer then there should be that bottom panel to take off and the gas valve should be right there..hope this helps

Amana dryer does not heat sufficiently


The problem is the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

No heat-gas dryer--Amana


There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. Jump the 2 wires out and see if the ignitor glows then. If so you need a flame sensor.
