Clean out the internal and external exhaust vent. The lint is causing the problem. Also,check the blower wheel attached to the motor. Make sure the wheel spline is not stripped out.

Dryer heats up for a few minutes and then quits but dryer still runs


Hello

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermal fuse is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this fuse for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I start time dry for 60 mins. It will run for


The heater element is not heating, they are fragile easy to get to at the back of the dryer. Check the thermal or overheat switch too, but would bet its the heater element.

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,

Quits heating


umm. what was original problem that made you change coils to begin?? no heat i would imagine.dont rush to judgement thatyour fix didnt work, if your running the dryer empty to test your repair,its quite possible that the dryer is going to heat to desired temp quickly, and take a while to cycle back on. throwsome wet clothes in machine and test it then.

After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite


The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
