Re: dryer problem

Your problem may be associated with heavy accumulations of lint inside the dryer and/or ducting. If you have had a water leak recently, and the dryer ducting got wet, the lint could be sticking somewhere and forming a clog. A simple way you can determine if you have a clog somewhere is to disconnect the dryer vent hose from the dryer and start the dryer. The air leaving the dryer should be forceful and about 140 degrees (in other words...good and warm). If the air is weak and cool, you have a clog somehwere INTERNAL to the dryer. If the air is forceful and warm, check your ducting from the dryer to where it exits the house. A dryer needs proper air flow in order to dry properly. The fact that your dryer is getting very hot tells me that the heating element is heating up, but may in fact, be OVERHEATING. The dryer will not continue to run in this condition. Eventually the heating element or thermal fuse will blow. Take the time to perform these simple steps and post back with your results and/or comments. If it is not a simple clog, I can give you further advice on how to determine a cause of your problem.

NOTE: If you plan on cleaning the dryer interior, ensure you unplug the dryer from the power source. Live voltages of 220VAC are still present even with the dryer turned off.

The flame in my Amana dryer (LGB109 W2) lights but keeps going out? Is it the solenoid? Termastat? At first it wouldn't ignite. Now it always ignites but doesn't stay on.


if your laundry room has a door try leaving the door to your laundry room open, that may do it, gas dryers and appliances must be able to breathe..

Dryer heat output is 148, but takes several runs to dry clothes

You most likely have a ventilation problem somewhere in your exhaust line. This can be very dangerous and a fire risk. You need to do a thorough check of your vent pipe and make sure it is clear and the exterior trap door is working freely.

Dryer not drying

try taking a flashlight and look over the back of the drier see if the vent got mashed or is all coled up and stuff let me know also you can remove the vent from the back of the drier and run 1 load to see if it works normal if so then you know the vents the culprit.
