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.

Amana dryer lea60aw.when dryer is plugged in and door open, timer is ticking and recently replaced heating element is giving off heat-does the timer need to be replaced? or is it a thermoststat/ etc.?

It should not be on sounds to me like the cent switch inthe motor needs replacement. Common on amana dryer motors, not too hard to fix. See if it slides easy by hand and oil it cleaning out any lint that may have accumulated in the swtich. The job of the switch is to power on the heating element ONLY when the motor gets up to speed and centrifugal force slides out wrights on the switch allowing for power to go to the heater element . Switch stuck most likely, let me know.

The timer keeps readjusting while drying clothes, will say there is 45 minutes left and clothes are perfectly dry, this could be a fire hazard if left unattended.

you will need to clean the vent tube/internal duct work:

The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature then the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

if the vent/duct work is clogged then the
dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry.

I hope this helps here is a website on how to remove cabinet:

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,
