Question about Dryers
This is a regular Amana dryer, NOT a washer/dryer combo.
I noticed the last couple of weeks, it is taking longer to dry the clothes.
Yes, the filter is clean.
Can you help?
It sounds to me like the heating element that heats up to dry the clothes has gone faulty or tripped out. Cant really tell from here.. when you open the drier is there a good level of heat ? If not, its the heating element section at fault.

In all occasions it is important that your observation
is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and
solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose
pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is
important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose
would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be
back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve
can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all
cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening
of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on
the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the
cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
