Amana LEA60AW dryer problem??

Hi, I have this dryer, and I can hear the timer running, but the lower part will not start. It was drying this morning, but then just stopped. Now it will not start the drying part, except you can hear the timer run.

This happened before and then just started working again.

Check the door switch to see if it is engaging. This will shut down the motor. I usually do this with a plastic ink pen to see if I hear a clicking.

I have a whirlpool dryer, model number lgt6634dq0. The timmer does not stop after the drying cycle has ended. My guest it might be the timer. After the dryer has finished it's cycle I can hear the timer...


HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The timer motor is damaged, and the cogs seem to be worn, as well. I recommend replacing this failed timer mechanism. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the


HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
