SOURCE: Moisture Sensor Location

It could be the sensor. However, check the exhaust vent for restrictions first. you can test the moisture sensor Damp Dry Test 1. Set the following Timer- DAMP DRY Fabric Care/Temperature switch- COTTON HIGH Wrinkle Guard switch- OFF Signal switch- LOUD Door- must be closed 2. Press the PUSH TO START switch. After approximately 16 seconds, the Timer will start to advance to the OFF position, and the ?End of Cycle? signal will sound. If one or more of these functions do not occur, proceed to the Factory Test. Factory Test The Factory Test allows factory/service personnel to test and verify all inputs to the Even Heat control. The basic operation of this test is to notify the operator with an audible beep every time the status of an input to the control changes state. Activating the Test Mode 1. Set the following configuration: Door- must be open Fabric Care/Temperature switch- AIR FLUFF Signal switch- LOUD Timer- TIMED DRY OR AUTO MOISTURE SESING PLUS selection 2. Turn the Wrinkle Guard switch from OFF to ON three times within a five second period. A single beep will sound to indicate that the factory test mode is activated. NOTE: If any of these initial conditions are not satisfied, the control will not enter the test mode. Test Mode Functionality When the control is in the Factory Test mode, every input change of state will result in a beep (with the exception of the Signal switch). This includes: Door switch Moisture Sensor (short/open Sensor will result in a beep) NOTE: A moistened finger or damp cloth may also be used. Fabric Care/ Temperature switch Wrinkle Guard switch Push to Start (PTS) switch (with the door switch closed) Timer (any cam input change will result in a beep) NOTE: Timer will advance during test. If any of the inputs do not result in a beep, proceed to the following component tests If the dryer shuts off too soon when set to the AUTO MOISTURE SENSING PLUS cycle, check the following: -HARNESS/CONNECTION -MOISTURE SENSOR -THERMISTOR -EVEN HEAT CONTROL Procedure: 1. Test the Moisture Sensor by following the procedure outlined in ?Factory Test?, beginning on page 3. If the Moisture sensor fails the ?Factory Test? (does not produce a beep sound), check the Moisture Sensor. a. If there is continuity to Ground for Yellow/Red (Y/R) wire with no load, look for a short in the Sensor or Y/R wire. Verify harness connections both at the Sensor and the Even Heat control. b. If the Sensor and Y/R wire are good, replace the Even Heat control. 2. If Factory Test passed, verify thermistor by performing test procedures outlined in ?Thermistor Test? 3. If problem persists after replacing Moisture Sensor and thermistor

if you can get it to go back in sure why not,its simply a metal strip plugged in to a wire measuring resistance, so if its not physically broken you should be able to pop it back into place

all there is is a belt that turns the drum,the belt goes on the motor pulley around the pulley and around the drum, check the motor pulley to see if it unattached from motor shaft or check the belt to see if it flipped over somehow,there is a smooth side and a ribbed side on the belt and you said the pulley is fine

Hi jenflint78...
Try some of these solutions first...

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks.
If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the
wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed
component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame.
Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed.
If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause
heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the
thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape
or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged
with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's
plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Amana NED7200TW dryer. Has heat, tumbles, clothes don't dry. Vents have been gone through and cleaned. This happens in the sensor dry and time dry modes. Any thoughts? Thanks!


Just a question. Does your blower work. If your blower does not work it won't dry. Check blower belt. Mine broke and had no air blowing. Just a thought.

Amana ned7200tw10 intermittent heating problem. New heating coil installed but dryer does not always run through heating cycle. Codes that come up are 2 and 10 when in diagnouses mode.


Sensors may be coated with waterproof wax from dryer sheets. Wash them with windex. The dryer not sensing moister it THINKS them clothes it dry. Cleaning the sensors works. Try it. The sensors will be behind the filter wall just below the filter on most sensor type dryers.

Dryer will not start get an error code that looks like a t5.


It is actually error code "tS" which stands for thermistor shorted. The control interprets it as an extremely low resistance which is a result of a the dryer overheating. Locate the thermistor on the blower housing and replace it. Click on the link below and refer to the parts diagram then look for item number 27(thermistor).

My dryer is an Amana #NED7200TW and I got a code HE on the display panel and there is no heat coming out. We tested the heating element protectors and they were fine. What could this mean? It is not in the...


HE shows up because there is no heat . Check the fuses in the panel and the heater itself. Also could be the sensor is not working to tell the control to turn the heater on.
