Amana Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The issue could be several thing,s but a couple of thoughts given the age of the dryer and home.
From a dryer standpoint sometimes the dryer drive motor fails by shorting out internally. The electrical short will cause the breaker the blow. If you are handy with a digital multimeter check for continuity across the motor.
From a home standpoint, the circuit breaker over time can wear out and trip early below the rated amperage. Since it is a gas dryer that is probably not the issue but check the wall outlet the dryer is plugged in to by testing another appliance with similar amperage draw.
Good luck with your troubleshooting!

The manual for the W10562495A has a copyright date of July 2013. Since this is a fairly new dryer, I believe it has an on-demand igniter instead of a standing pilot light. Most gas dryers stopped including a pilot light in the 1980s. This is much safer since there is no danger of the pilot going out with the gas still flowing.

If your dryer is not working, check the gas solenoid and the igniter. (Use the data sheet that should be inside the dryer. It may be behind the control panel.) If you live in an area that had a history of mining, check your ventilation. I have to open the garage doors to my home after some storms to get more oxygen into the basement. The gas appliances will give an error about "failing to ignite" if I don't.

I hope this helps.

Means an HEating (heating) error. You may have a burned-out heating element, or an open thermal fuse.

The currant draw of the unit is higher than the rating of the in line circuit breaker causing it to trip, points to a faulty unit have it repaired.

If the igniter doesn't glow, then you probably have a bad igniter! You can use an ohmmeter to test it. Unplug the dryer before you start working on it. then take the dryer apart until you can get to the igniter. Unplug the igniter plug, and measure it's resistance. If it's less than 100 ohms, then it is okay, but if it's reading over 1000 ohms (or an open circuit), then it is bad and needs to be replaced.

valve coils most likely, there are 2 solenoids on gas valve, check continuity between pins ! & 2 1365 ohms, 4 & 5 1220 ohms, 1 & 3 560 ohms spec equals + - 25 ohms.

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

You need to call customer service or that info. It still should be under warranty, check and if so call for service.
