Amana electric dryer won't heat up

It can really only be two things. The element or wiring to it has failed or The Thermal fuse has been overheated and cut off power. Both can be checked with a Digital Multimeter. If your Amana dryer is not heating, it likely has either a defective heating element, thermal fuse, high-limit thermostat, or cycling thermostat. If you have a gas dryer, it is likely not heating because of a defective gas valve solenoid. Feb 2, 2022

Amana dryer model ngd7200tw smells like gas when it runs and it's not heating up

That is dangerous. Call for service, the law says only registered gas technicians can work on gas appliances. Turn the gas off at the rear. There is enough gas in a dryer leak to blow your windows out on that floor. The igniter or thermocouple is faulty.

Amana NFW7200TW Front Load Washer. Is there a trick to changing the baffle out as far as accessing screw?

Question edited for clarity.No, you normally do a full tear down and split the outer drum to get to the screw on the inner drum. You could undo it with grips from inside and use a magnet taped to a coat hanger to collect the screw from between the gap.

How to test the dryer motor on NED7200TW with a meter. I don't know how to read wire diagram. Which terminals should I test to see if the motor is bad?

the best way to check a motor is right at the motor itself, disconnect the incoming wires and measure the resistance between the wires going into the motor, it should give you the correct resistance reading in your manual for the motor. If it was a ground problem in your motor it would be blowing the fuses or breaker, Also ensure that the motor turns freely, you may need to slip the belt off to check that

How do i change the heating element.

The heating element is accessible through the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet then slide the panel down then off the cabinet. The heating element can now be accessed and repalced.

Remove the screws securing the heating element to the heater box then pull down the heating element to remove it from the heater box.

Disconnect and label the wires for the heating element and the components. Remove the components from the old heating element then transfer it to the new heating element.

Slide the new heating element up into the heater box and secure it in place. Align the slots on the top of the lower front access panel with the locating tabs on the front access panel then slide it into position and secure the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet.

How to install the drive belt on an Amana NED7200TW dryer?

Just did this swap out - the trick to the Amana NED7200TW belt replacement is you need to do the belt idler threading from the REAR of the unit (unless you have the hands of a 5 year old!) However you still have to pull the entire drum from the front and if you are that far in it is recommended you replace the drive idler pulley. Both parts together are under $30. 1.Remove back screws that hold top on - slide it off. 2.Remove the plastic control panel - careful do not over stress the wiring harness 3.Remove the metal frame that sits below the plastic control panel - again watch the harnesses. 4.On the front of the unit remove the front panel - trick - there are two screws inside of the door that must come out and also you need to disconnect the small harness that feeds the door sense switch. 5.Now you will see a brace that holds the front of the drum - it's like an "H" on its side. Unscrew that and lift and remove the brace - the front of the drum is now free. 6.Presuming the belt is broken, you carefully lift the drum out. 7.Under the drum you will see the motor that drives the belt (and the blower on the front) 8.Next to the motor you will see the tensioner/idler pulley. Pretty simple to replace, use the new screw that came with the new idler. The new ones have ball bearings, will outlast the dryer. 9.With the drum out, put the belt around the drum, groove faced in. Suggest you take a little masking tape to tape it down in a few places to keep it in place while you jockey it around and do the threading. 10.Now, go to the back of the unit, there is a small vent access panel. Remove it, it has a long vent tube that is part of the assembly keep them all together, pull it all out. 11.Now with the drum resting in place, reach in the back to thread the belt - there are diagrams around that show the loop around the drive shaft and the idler, it requires a hefty twist of the idler - maybe 140 degrees from resting position clockwise as you look from the back to get it over the belt, but it fits.12.Now remove the tape and carefully and slowly rotate the drum to get the belt laying flat, work out any twists, groove down, and make sure there are no twists by inspecting the idler from the back. 13.You are good to go, reassemble.

Amana dryer runs for 5 seconds. chimes with TS error code. I replaced thermistor and cleared code. still same issues. Help.

Check your lint screen and vent for restrictions or clogs. Then check the resistance for the thermistor at the control board. You need to confirm that the wiring and replacement thermistor are undamaged. Look for the white connector and test across pin 2 (blue) and pin 6 (red). If the resistance is in range, then the control board is faulty. Replace the control board. I hope this helps. Since you already replaced the thermistor, I assume you know where to find the parts list for your Amana dryer. Cindy Wells

That is actually a Ts error.

I have an amana driver. A newer electric one with the digital screen the touch buttons. It stopped drying so I replaced the heating coil. Now that its back together it wont even run. The power comes on and when I select start it just beeps at me and shows me the code d o Any advise?

The dryer is indicating that the door is open. If you can verify that the door is latched, the latch mechanism or the control board may have been damaged during heating coil replacement.
