Check for proper connections of the power cord, sounds like a nutral and hot wire reversed

nutral in the center, white
black and red to the outside
green to frame ground
this is if you are using a 4 wire cord


three wire cord
black to outside screw
red to outside screw
white to center screw

grey three wire cord
center lead to center screw
outside lead to outside screw on each side

Dryer is not heating up. yesterday the dryer would not turn on, the black wire on the cord had burned in half. bought a new cord, dryer turns on but no heat. circuit breaker was not tripped. turned it off...


These are pretty simple to fix. Take the service panel off and check the heater elementthemobilian_1392.jpg
The limits and element is all in one nice little bundle and only 2 screws to mess with.
Note: the control stat is mounted on the blower housing, these limits on the heater element only tripp if there is air restrictions.

I have your service manual right ova heah: Amana dryer tech service brochure

It is possible that you could have a bad breaker in the panel. They will start to trip randomly when they are going bad. If not the dryer is drawing too many amps and the breaker is doing it's job. If the heating element is defective and drawing extra juice that could trip the breaker. Usually replacement breakers are not too expensive if you electrical panel is less then 20 years old and can be purchased at most home improvement stores. I would try replacing the breaker before you try repairing the dryer. If you install a new breaker and the problem continues to happen then you should check the dryer heating element. That component is what draws the most amps and would be the most common one for tripping the breaker.

How many prongs are on amana NED5100TQ electric dryer? I have a new one being delivered today and currently have a 3 prong hookup


Generally you have to purchase the cord separate from the actual electric dryer. Therefore, call the company and tell them you have a 3 prong outlet, that way they can install a three prong plug. Many times, they bring both plugs with them and do the plug install on site. Enjoy your new dryer!

New Dryer was purchased -- Tenant tells me he now requires higher voltage


Hello Paulcolletti,
I am not sure what you mean with your question.. Electric dryers typically use either 3 pole or 4 pole plugs that mate with the corresponding receptacle. If you already had an electric dryer there before, you need to make sure your power cord matches the receptacle. If it does not, most home goods stores ( like Home Depoit/ Lowes) and others carry the molded cord sets for that application and are reasonably easy to install. I fail to understand the low voltage versus high voltage comment as it pertains to a dryer. Please elaborate on this and maybe I can assist with a solution.. Good Luck...

Used dryer 74602 not heating


If the lower front cover comes off remove the cover and vacuum around heating element and surroundings. A lot of time there is a lot of lint build up and the heating element will stay off for safety.
once this is done you should be fine.

Another place to check is the exaust hose. Make sure it is not blocked along with the vent that leads outside. If this is blocked it will cause the dryer to go into shut down mode.

Hope this helps.
