I'm seeing a master switch on the control board, try a reset there. But, sounds like a bad element. You need to test continuity through your heater components. When testing a component unhook wires first, as they will still have continuity even if bad with wires attached.

My Amana Drier Model LE8407W2 stopped heating (everything else works fine). After checking the vent, I have decided to examine the heating element but am having difficulty accessing it. I have removed...


Most dryers are designed to be repaired from the rear. On the rear probably the whole back panel unscrews. Giving access to the duct where the heating element is located. Make sure to have the dryer unplugged while servicing it to prevent getting electrocuted. Your heating element will be inside of a metal duct that feeds hot air into the dryer remove it and inspect it for breaks in the coils of wire or burned areas. Having a good volt meter that checks continuity is a great tool to check dryer parts. There are several over heat sensors that can go bad over time to and can prevent the dryer from heating. These sensors and the heating element can all be checked using the volt meter on the continuity setting. Having a cell phone on hand helps to take pictures of wiring and connections inside the dryer before unhooking them to aid in reassembly. With sensors or element unplugged and a volt meter on continuity setting touch the red probe to one side of a connector and the black probe to the other side if there's no numbers or a beep on your volt meter suspect that part bad. I have fixed several dryers this way. Hope this helps you.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Amana electric dryer will not heat/ LEA60AW Everything works fine but no heat...have cleaned all lint from inside the dryer by taking front panel off. What else should I check.... I noticed it wouild come...


Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the heater element is out. If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow a kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

Accessing the heating element


I have a ALE643RB Amana dryer and believe the heating element has went out because the dryer will not heat anymore. I have taken the control panel off the top and all the screws out on the back and the bottom edge, but am still not able to get the shell off the dryer. How do you get to the heating element?
