Is the vent connected to another dryer as well? I've seen this before. Builders will sometimes put in a vent and have 2 dryer venting into it. The second dryer will send moisture into the first one and vice versa. Also, check for baffles on the outside vent. If cool air is coming into that vent then it will cause condensation in your dryer.

How can I diagnose, isolate and repair my Amana, NED7200TW dryer it runs but will not heat?

Since you say it happened gradually seems like it's not the heating element. If that's functioning properly you should see the orange glow inside the dryer when running. If your dryer does not have a glass door you can keep the dryer running by holding the button in. Look on the door, at some point you should see something that makes contact and pushes a switch on the frame. You can trick it by manually closing the switch. Be careful. I would suspect the trouble is a clogged lint exhaust. Over time this will fill with lint preventing the moist air to escape. This is how the dryer works. The hot wet air in the drum needs to vent outside to dry the clothes. When this becomes clogged you have nowhere for the moisture to go. So it stays in the drum and runs and runs without drying clothes. Also make sure you clean out the lint trap after each use. Clean the entire vent path. Also make sure you are venting outside. If not, you are just recirculating wet moist air back into the dryer. When working properly, you should feel a good flow of warm wet air at the outside vent. If not there is still a clog. Good luck.

Our NED7200TW intermitantly won't shut down when the clothes are dry. Every 4-6 loads, it just keeps drying. It stops upon opening the door and turning off switch. the first time this happened, I...

try looking at the moisture sensor strips. usually inside the under the door area. two strips that sense moisture as the clothes roll by. these may be broke, shorted or need replaced?

Takes 4 ever to dry clothes. Will run & run when on auto dry.

If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Heats up but takes several cycles to get clothes dryer

Check for a restriction in your exhaust vent. not just behind the machine but all the way to the outside vent,should have good warm airflow at outside vent. With no good air flow you have no way to get rid of the moisture. and all you will end up with is warm moist clothes. this can happen slowley happen over time and next thing you know it takes several cycles to dry the clothes .it cost a lot to dry them this way

Takes 2 dryer cycles to dry clothes

Check your Venting.  When the venting gets clogged the dryer wont circulate air and can't remove the moisture.  The venting usually gets clogged right behind the dryer or where it exits the house.  Also make sure your lint trap is clean.

Amana gas dryer not hot enough. Flame is too small.

Bill, please check the clearance of the tube INSIDE the dryer. On older dryers this becomes blocked by lint in the same way that the outside vent tube does. I've seen some that were restricted down to a dime's diameter.

Take the hose off of the back of the dryer, and with the dryer off and cold, shine a flashlight into the tube and look for buildup. If the tube makes an immediate 90 deg. bend, try reaching your hand in to feel around.

If you've already optimized the flame and verified that the gas supply is not being restricted at some point before it gets inside the dryer, then it may be that the flame is not the problem, but rather it is the moisture expulsion that is still restricted.

Dead Dryer

I would say to replace the motor. The only thing I would suggest is see where you have power and where you do not have power. If it is plugged into the wall outlet then you should have power going everywhere including the motor. If the motor has power and will not start up then replace it. But I would check EVERYTHING out and make ksure that it is the problem and nothing else is the problem

water out of any dryer now or old is problem. a definite venting issue. dryers doing what it should, pulling moisture from your clothes, that moisture should vent outside your home. however you have a SEVERELY clogged vent and the moisture is getting trapped and condensing on the cooler metal . replace your venting. at very least disassemble and clean. don't forget about exhaust hood where it leaves house
