Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

My Amana electric dryer sometimes will not heat and timer will not move. The dryer will just run and run. If I unplug the dryer for a few hours it will work again, but the problem will return.

Timer wont advance runs non stop will not heat


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.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Whirpool amana dryer runs but no heat. on timed try timer doesnt move either.


HI, the timer motor is malfunctioning. this can affect the way you dryer heats in this case. I would advise to check the thermal fuse before replacing the timer. it is located on the blower house or, on the vent duct. in will show no continuity if defective. replace the timer if the thermal fuse is showing good continuity when measure with a meter.
