Amana Wall unit blows cold air before heating

the unit works by chilling air and the byproduct is heat in the compressor, this is used for heating in the winter and then reversed in summer to blow cold air. It has to blow cold and warm up before it can blow heat.

My unit just started blowing out cold air only when set on heat, what is wrong?

its on a lockout. there is a safety switch that is open do you have a multimeter? If not iside the furnace is a red reset push button if you push that chances are you had flame rollout and you need to call the experts that means either you have a cracked heat exchanger or a blocked or not working inducer

Hi, Two problems. The first I believe is rollers - drum clunks when turning. The second problem is it blows cold - no heat. What part is needed to repair this. Thanks.

Well, check the rollers for flat spots, could also be the belt drive pulleys especially if you've overloaded the dryer and caused it to stop tumbling.
Secondly while the front cover is off look at the heating element used to trigger the gas valve ( igniter ) next check out the light or flame sensor, if the pilot flame ignites but the major flame doesn't then the sensor may be malfunctioning.

I have maytag dryer and it is blowing cold air. Everything else is working.

If there is no heat then the thermostat or heating element (for an electric dryer) is not working.
If a gas dryer with no heat: Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Dryer turns and air blows, but no heat. GGQ8811KQ0

Make sure that your dryer air vent is not being blocked by lent, and if it is not it is your element or thermocouple?

My kenmore gas dryer turns on and lights runs about five mins. hot and then starts blowing cold air and ignitor keeps glowing on and off but wont light flame

see if the thermal bulb is located in the path of the flame, and if it is you will have to change the gas thermal sensing bulb.

Amana Dryer LG8409W2 - The dryer heats for a few seconds then runs cold. The dryer has been cleaned as well as the vent and still no heat.

karenl46 -- Flame sensor has to "see" proper flame in order for gas burner to stay on. Safety solenoid engages (shuts off gas) when flame light not detected. Check window on sensor (1:30 CW position) on burner tube. If you still have problem after cleaning it, then refer to URL below. -- SWT
