Amana dryer problem

My amana distinction dryer just started blowing a fuse in my fuse box after running for about 5 minutes. It's about 5 years old and we just started having this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

I have amana distinctions dryer thats 10 years old it runs so hot its hard to take the cloths out when done


Hi dionwheels62

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.

I replaced the thermal fuse because there was no heat. Now the dryer over heats and shuts off. Everything checks ok on ohm meter. The timer works in the "no heat" mode. Could it be the timer...


after you changed the thermal fuse did you clean out the dryer and the vent line?if not you blew the fuse again and it will keep doing this until you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac and blow out the motor and the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower.the dryer went over 300 degrees from lint buildup and popped the thermal fuse,it's a safety so the dryer doesn't run hot and start a fire.if the dryer is running and sfter like 20 minutes it shuts down and won't start for a while until it cools down then the motor is bad also probably from the dryer running to hot from the lint build up.

My Amana package system fan only blows cold air


a fuse blows for a reason. dry bearings will increase amp draw, a non rotating fan rotor will blow a fuse. burnt windings will almost instantly blow a fuse. just changing the fuse may not solve your problem. find the problem and fix it THEN replace the fuse.

Amana NEW7200TW (1 year old) runs, but stopped heating.


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

New dryer keep blowing 30 amp fuses


your problem (especially if you are using screw-in "plug fuses") i.e. BUSS fuses and cartridge fuses they get hot and with time the insulating disc that insulates hot from neutral (grnd) breaks down and with dryer current draw it arcs over and in summer its more humid which contributes to moisture,have a new sub(pony) panel if you have no room for another 240volt circuit in your main panel,that should cure your trouble

Dryer wont heat up it just blows cold air...whats the deal???????


Usually what fails in an electric dryer after years of good service that the heating element or elements fail and it often blows a fuse in the dryer when it does this. You need to remove covers and check the heating element with an ohm meter, Sometimes the element is visible and can be seen to be broken. If you can't see the break avoiding handling the element wire as the older it is the more fragile it gets. No point breaking one that isn't already broken. The thermostat that controls the drying temperature can also fail but that is less likely. Heating elements are like light bulbs. They have a fixed life and burn out after a number of hours. Don't forget to replace the fuse if it has one and its blown with the same size fuse.

Amana gas dryer only heats first 20 minutes


Check your ducts that the heat blows out through. make sure there is no plug up in the dryer or in the ductwork.
You may have a problem with the termosensor or the high temp cut out safety switch/sensor. This sensor would be somewhere in the exhaust of the dryer.

Stink Smell from Electric Clothes Dryer/Fuse Box


this should be quite easy to solve.remove the circuit breaker and sniff it. if it is the same smell you are getting when the dryer is running that is your problem.have an elecrtician check and replace with correct value.the dryer is most probably running on an overloaded circuit.
