Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

My Amana gas dryer is making a squealing sound. I took off the drum and belt and checked them. They seem OK. I started the motor with the belt and drum off and the squealing is coming from behind the blower wheel where it connects to the motor. Can I lubricate this or could it be the blower or motor that needs to be replaced?

Usually there is hair wrapped around the blower wheel shaft try cleaning that if it still does it it may be the motor itself

Squealing dryer


Sounds like the drum bearings are going bad, or at the very least need lubrication. thats what your problem is.

I do not believe the problem is with your motor.
I think it is your drum rollers in need of lubrication or replacement.
Replacing the drum rollers is a LOT CHEAPER than replacing a motor

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
Check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The dryer heats, motor runs but drum doesnt turn.


Could be one of several things. The drum turns by motor and fan belt around the drum. The most common problem is that the fan belt is broken. Check to see that the drum is free and not bound up by frozen bearings. Also that nothing is jamming the drum. If everything seems to be ok --- you need to check the pulley on the motor shaft and be sure it is tight on the shaft . More than likely -- it is a broken belt. I hope this helped.

There is a squealing noise when the dryer runs. The belt seems to work fine, but there is a whistling/squealing noise when the dryer is on


The drum rides on a pair of plastic glides in the front. They get thin and their bracket begins to rub the drum.
The rollers tend to get a little noisy in time. I use HVAC oil (zoom-oil from ace hardware) to lube them because it is temp resistant, won't disapate, and is non flammable.

Dryer squeals terribly awful from back of dryer, seemingly somewhere between the rubber rollers. ( drum)


there are bearings or a bearing behind the tub, need too make sure you unplug power cord first . then open the top and front so you can get a look at it. bearing is in the center back behind tub. this should get you started !!! sounds like a little grease will take care of it . good luck !!!!!!

Won't spin or start


Sounds like the screen/sock combo got the tub in a bind and the drum belt broke.

If you want to pursue replacing the belt, let me know.

Gas dryer won't run when pushing start. Motor not comming on.


There is a small resetable fuse athe back under the top cover being held by a plate that has a screw holding it in place. To test just connect the wires together. I see this all the time on those modeles.

HOTPOINT DRYER VTD00G REPLACED BELT BUT WONT SPIN


Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.
