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.

Tips for a great answer:
Item #2986 (OEM Part)
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.
