Model 69822 is less than 8 years old. Screeches loudly for about a minute on startup. Runs fine after that and dries the clothes.


The screeching is probably a slipping belt. This can be caused by"

1. Glazed or worn out belt.
2. Improper belt tension.
3. Overloaded dryer
4. Bad drum bearing

If it is used heavily (often), I would assume #1 which is the cheapest and quickest fix. You can investigate #2 at the time of replacement.

My Amana Electric Dryer Randomly stops working and it won't start up again , it can take up to an hour for it to work again. Model Number LE8407W2.


There are safety sensors that will break the current when it gets too hot or if the sensors themselves are failing. This will shut the dryer off or make it quit heating. After cooling down or at random times the sensor may make connection again allowing the dryer to work. These can only be checked out using an OHM meter and must be checked when they are not allowing the dryer to run.

Hello, I have Amana LG4309W heavy duty gas dryer.


sounds like one of the supply fuses at the house panel,these 240 volt dryers are wired so the timer is on one phase(120)volt and the motor is on the opposite phase(120)volt and the heating element is on both phases for a combined 240 volts,if you lose one phase you either wont get motor operation or timer operation,and for sure no heat and you have the timer so you have 120volts

I have the heavy duty 4 cycle Amana dryer. When I turn it on it is very loud and stops after about 20 minutes. It smells really hot so maybe it's overheating? But why?


sounds like motor bearings are failing. causes motor to overheat and cut out on motor protector. I'm afraid a new motor is in order.

You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.
