Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Amana electric LEA10AE dryer

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.

DLE330RAW amana dryer running too hot


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.

My amana dry spins but doesnt dry anything


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.

Super capacity Amana dryer is less than 3 years old. It no longer dries the clothes. There is no heat.


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

Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??


We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

Kenmore electric dryer, won't start and clicks by time dry knob


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

Not drying my cloths . runs but there is no heat


Since the unit will run but won't heat...

The following are things that could stop an electric dryer from heating:

bad heating element(s)
loose, corroded or burnt wire(s)
thermostat(s)
thermal fuse ( not all models )
motor heat switch
timer
selector switch

The older the unit the more likely it's heating elements or thermostats

Sorry....this can take some time to diagnose

Dryer quit after about 20 minutes-see more details below


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

I have an Amana Elec. Dryer. Model # DLE 330 RAW that all of sudden quit heating. This dryer is about five years old. It has 7 cycles and 3 temp controls. Could this be a bad heat control switch or a...


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.

Amana dle330raw electric dryer


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
