Quit drying. When I took it apart, there is an orange wire that runs from the front, (blower unit?) to the element unit. Pulled element unit out and realized the orange wire on element end is fried. So something went haywire. Would it be the little component that the wire plugs into on element end? Or??? I fixed the wire but still have no heat. Thax in advance for the help. Jewell

Re: Amana electric LEA10AE dryer
Usually that wire "fries off" with bad connection, ify ou can check for contionuty through the components on the heater you find the problemUsually the thermostat with the box like stand off mounted to that back wall.(also ck to make sure your breaker(s) didnt pop

Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element. I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced. Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this. Be blessed.
The control thermostat on the blower housing is the one you need to change if it is getting too hot. It is taking too long to shut off the element. The only other thing it could be is a blocked vent making it overheat. The fuse is set for 350f the limit on the element is a 250 f one. I suspect the 250 f limit on the element is doing the drying not the control stat. Hence you getting overheat but not hot enough to blow the fuse.
Probably the element. This is a wondermous dryer. The element is on the left rear wall. The limit mounts on the element making it easy to diagnose heating problems. Pop the lower front panel off by removing the screws at the base. Unplug the machine and carry it outside so you can blow it out. AMANA DRYER REPAIR MANUAL
check your heating element in the back of the unit for breaks, if there is not heat that is your problem. the other issue can be a fuse that blew not letting power get to the heating element but the easiest and cheapest thing to look at first is the heating element
usually the thermal fuse goes and dryer dies part number 3390719 located in front of dryer on top of the blower wheel housing,when you read anything out you have to pull one of the wires off to get correct reading.also on some of the dryers there is a switch on the pulley that will kill the dryer if the belt breaks
do you have clothes on top of dryer? if so, i'll say it again never ever stack clothes or anything on top of it. Things on it insulate it and will overheat the machine. Yes it has a overheat linit switch but to get to it you have to take it apart and pull the drum out depending on the style of heat element you have. Some are in the back of drum and others are in a tube on the floor of the unit inside. If yours is behind the drum then drum needs to come out to check for the problem
It could be a circuit breaker, fuse, or electrical problem. Just because the motor runs doesnt mean it will heat.
You should check for power first.
Then unplug the dryer remove the lower front panel, two screws.
Mark and label any wire you remove so you know where they go!
in the back on the left is the heating element, check for burnt wires, take the element out and check for a broken wire on the back side also check all the thermostats, and electrical components to make sure they are good.
unlikely to be anything to do with door switch which is only 2-4 wires. humidity is sensed by a brush rubbing on the drum. take lid off and check spring loaded brush is actually rubbing correctly on the drum. if this is ok then fault is in module which senses output of the brush
