Question about Amana DLE330RAW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Amana DLE330RAW My dryer stopped drying (getting hot) so I replaced the heating element. Problem solved? Not exactly. Now it will dry for 30 minutes and then shut down. Sounds like it is overheating the motor some how but why. The dryer turns on fine and that wasn't the problem before it just wouldn't heat up! I have found through troubleshooting that everything is pointing to the motor. Just not quite sure how to get to it. I have been underneath (hence replaced the heating element) and can see the motor however am unable to figure out how to get to it to remove and replace. Some step by steps would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Kelly

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.

It is not heating up


There could be a couple of problems. First, ensure the vent line is clear. If it is stopped up, this will cause the dryer to go out on overtemp and will not dry your clothes. Second, the overtemp sensor could be bad and not letting your heater element to energize. And third, your heating element could be shot. I have attached a link to Amana's owner manual for your dryer.

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.

The drum rotates, but no heat, it's an Amana Electric dryer, and it just stopped getting hot... bummer HELP!!!!!!! Fixme


You may need to replace the heating rod. Go to the website of the manufacturer and see if there are any recalls or facts that others have contributed about your dryer.

When a dryer isn't getting hot it mean that either the electricity isn't getting to the heating tool or the heating tool is broken. Look for some schematics if you'd like. Find out where the parts are inside and what goes to what.

I also mentioned the lint filter before. You must make sure the lint filter is cleaned after every drying cycle or the machine will overheat and if there is a fuse between the electricity and the heating rod you may be able to just change that! Good luck.

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

My dryer doesnt dry. I believe it is the heating element. only cold air is coming out


To replace coil, unplug and take off the back. Might have to remove heat shroud to get at coil. Remove and replace. You might have bad contacts on relay switch so play with them first and plug it back in to try it. If it doesn't work then do first step

I have a Amana DLE330RAW everything works, but it won't heat?


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Heating element


What did the original heater look like when you removed it? Was it burned in two? Make sure you are getting air circulation over the heater. Check your lint filter and air exhaust piping. Flapper outside on the exhaust pipe may be sticking.

Dryer taking a long time to dry


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
