Question about Dryers

Amana Electric Dryer; Model Number LE4607W

I have an Amana Electric Dryer, Model Number LE4607W. When I went to open the light flickered. It stopped in the middle of the drying cycle, and when I turned it on (with the knob) it made a loud grinding noise. Now, when you push the knob down, it makes a humming noise, but the drum does not turn. You can turn the drum manually in one direction. Is the problem with the belt, or the motor?

Thanks!

I have a Amana Dryer NED7200TW. At the end of any drying cycle the dryer shuts off and then turns on again continuously untill i stop it. It also shows a C and a backward C in the display. Any thoughts?


You might need a new display board (electronic timer ). Seems like the timer will not send the message for the dryer to stop when the cloths are dry

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry


Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.

Won't turn on


First check voltage and breaker,(this is a big one)
next, if you have power to the appliance (120 gas dryer or 240 electric) then the door switch is probaly broken.

lastly, perhaps a thermal fuse located on blower vent. goodluck
