Sounds like you have a bad motor,itried looking up your model number but it's not the full number,could be a thermister in there but usually when the dryer heats up and dies it's the motor

My Amana Electric Dryer Randomly stops working and it won't start up again , it can take up to an hour for it to work again. Model Number LE8407W2.


There are safety sensors that will break the current when it gets too hot or if the sensors themselves are failing. This will shut the dryer off or make it quit heating. After cooling down or at random times the sensor may make connection again allowing the dryer to work. These can only be checked out using an OHM meter and must be checked when they are not allowing the dryer to run.

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.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Our amana gas dryer. runs for about 20 mins and shuts off. try to resart and there is busing noisefrom the controls on top. if sets for 45mins. it will start again. until it gets hot. and then wont work.


The problem is in the gas valve coils. They sit on the top of the gas valves. When these coils are energized open the gas valves and allowing the gas to burn. If one or more coil malfunctions, the dryer shuts off. It is usually difficult to properly test the coils and replacement is the best solution.

RUNS AND HEATS UP BUT THEN QUITS LIKE IT OVER HEATED


Check for good air flow from wall end of flex hose. If weak, remove the lint screen and retry. If now ok, soak the lint screen in detergent and hot water. Hard to tell if this is the correct answer.
