Hi my dryer is only just over 1 year old so of course warrenty is up and it wont heat. it runs and circulates but no heat, my husband cleaned out the vent tube what else can we do?? it cant be major its...


it could be the heating element even though it is just over a year old, i have seen heating elements go out on 3 month old dryers, it also could be a thermostat the best thing to do is make sure it is getting the full 220 volts going to it, if it only has 110 volts the motor will run and have no heat and vise versa, then if that is good get to the heating element and look it over real good most of the time the heating coil will be broke into it wont look burnt just broke

TAKES ALONG TIME TO DRY


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

You did not mention if the dryer was even warm to the touch during operation.

The generic service manual can be found here:

http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/RS3200007R0.pdf

I would follow the troubleshooting process in step 9 of page 21.

To gain access to the unit you will need to remove the service access panel Pg 28 of manual

Gas burner circuits steps are on page 32

A little about heat control circuits. They are series circuits and any one of the following can prevent the dryer from heating.

1. Motor switch
2. heat control
3. cycle thermostat
4. high limit thermostat
5. thermistor
6. heating element

in addition to the above

For gas burners

1. Gas valve
2. Gas safety valve
3. Ignitor
4. Flame sensor

Most dryers have at least 5 of the 6 components listed in the first set of components above. The high limit thermostat is replaced by the thermistor in newer models. Thermistors are a one time fail item and if it has opened it must be replaced.

The warranty for this dryer is as follows:

1 year full coverage

Limited Warranty

After one year from the date of original retail purchase, Amana will provide a replacement part, f.o.b. Amana, Iowa, as listed below, for any part that fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship. The owner will be responsible for paying all other costs including labor, mileage, and transportation.

Second through Third Year
Amana will provide any part.

Third through Fifth Year
Amana will provide the drive motor or timer.

Third through Tenth Year
Amana will provide the cabinet assembly should the part rust through.

Lifetime
Amana will provide the Stainless Steel inner drum if so equipped.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Super capacity Amana dryer is less than 3 years old. It no longer dries the clothes. There is no heat.


check your heating element in the back of the unit for breaks, if there is not heat that is your problem. the other issue can be a fuse that blew not letting power get to the heating element but the easiest and cheapest thing to look at first is the heating element

Amana Dryer 14 years old, turn on the dryer heats for about 10 minutes, then I hear noise like grinding noise and the heat turns off?


Remove the front panel and check the blower wheel on the motor. If it turns freely on the motor shaft replace it.

I have an Amana Elec. Dryer. Model # DLE 330 RAW that all of sudden quit heating. This dryer is about five years old. It has 7 cycles and 3 temp controls. Could this be a bad heat control switch or a...


It could be a circuit breaker, fuse, or electrical problem. Just because the motor runs doesnt mean it will heat.

You should check for power first.

Then unplug the dryer remove the lower front panel, two screws.

Mark and label any wire you remove so you know where they go!

in the back on the left is the heating element, check for burnt wires, take the element out and check for a broken wire on the back side also check all the thermostats, and electrical components to make sure they are good.

ask more questions if needed

Amana gas dryer only heats first 20 minutes


Check your ducts that the heat blows out through. make sure there is no plug up in the dryer or in the ductwork.
You may have a problem with the termosensor or the high temp cut out safety switch/sensor. This sensor would be somewhere in the exhaust of the dryer.
