Question about Amana NDE2335AY Electric Dryer
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.
