Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

I have an Amana dryer Mod. ALG649RAW. Turn dryer on ignites than flames, but after a few minutes goes out, it will again ignite, but won't flame. Is it overheating? The dryer is vented underground about 20' to the outside. I cleaned all lint from dryer and vent to outside seems to have good flow. Can you help?

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.

Mod 417.94052500 won't heat


Have you tried to watch or listen to see if you hear it ignite and then it goes out or does it not try to ignite at all?
If it doesn't try to ignite at all, replace the igniter with this part.
If it ignites and goes out after a few seconds, replace the flame sensor with this part.

Replace the two small round black solenoids located on the gas valvle. I just did it last week. They come in a set and only cost me $26.50. Easiest fix I've done. I was all set to go out and buy a new dryer.

Dryer wont heat


About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

Intermitten Heat up


make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
