I have the same dryer and the same problem. The machine was bought at Home Depot as a housewarming gift by my parents. It was less than a year and half old at the time it completely shut down. I have been fighting with whirlpool over their inability to fix the problem for almost 4 months now. In my opinion this is a major defect and the machine should be replaced regardless of the warranty status.

On the backside of the dryer by the motor there is a micro-switch it is #5 in the diagram:

My Amana Dryer ned7200tw has been working great till the last couple months. Lights come on, I can choose setting with the knob but nothing happens when I push the button to start.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Drum won't turn


Mine was doing the same thing and I have replaced the Thermistor and it still acts like it done before. I am so over it! I was told it was the main control board but I don't know :/ I don't like the prices of them of what I have seen so far.

I have an Amana NED7200TW dryer that is approx. 2 1/2 years old and am having issues. The first sign of a problem was it would not come back on after running a 40-50 minute cycle. Nothing would come on,...


Open the cabinet and look for lint buildup around the motor. Lint will act like a blanket and hold to heat in on the motor which in turn will cause it to shut down by way of it's safety mechanism. Check that out and post back your findings.

My Amana NED7200TW dryer still shuts down with no power and after a couple minutes it will power up again. I checked the circuit breaker but the breakers were not tripped. Help!


Sounds like an internal over-temp thermostat is tripping. Usually, this is caused by near-zero air flow through the machine. Vacuum out the exhaust hose, the exit fitting from the house, and all of the dryer's interior air path that you can reach. Wash out the lint filter with detergent and HOT water as fabric softener deposits will plug the screen. Check the exterior vent for air flow while it's running--it should be fairly forceful (and hot!). Hope this helps!
