Hi, i have an amana dryer that the timer and the heating element quit at the same time.could the heating problem be coming from the bad timer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

I think you have a failed cycle thermostat. The cycle thermostat provides power to the timer to advance the clock and the heating element. If the thermostat has failed it will not heat or advance the timer. Usually when just one side of the thermostat fails the timer will advance but the dryer will run and not shut off. There may a wiring problem on the C terminal of the cycle thermostat. (Burned / got hot / wire itself failed from heat )

If you can provide a model number I can probably locate he replacement parts information for you and possibly a wiring diagram.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Dryer Tunrs on and runs with no heat and timer never moves


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Dono heat and timer dont turn


HI. Due to the fact that the timer is not advancing, this will lead me to believe that the timer is the culprit here. The timer is equipped with a motor. this motor, when energized, will advance the timer dial, thus, activating the unit, and progressing the cycle. If the motor is damaged, as in your case, the unit will not heat, or run correctly. Simply replacing the timer control module will correct this problem.

Replace this damaged timer mechanism asap.

TEDX640PQ1 dryer, timer no longer times and heat does not come on. dryer will spin and blow cool air forever


HI. The timer is the principal initiator off all functions. If the timer module dose not time, or rotate properly, this will signal that the timer mechanism has failed. The timer will need to be replaced in this case. The motor is damaged.

Once the timer is replaced, the heat will return as well.
