Amana Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Amana gas dryer lg8319w2 blows circuit breaker when turned on, has worked fine for 25 plus years, just happened recently.
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!

E5 code on amana dryer says tighten door and reset _ how do yoy reset
E 5 Usually means open fuse. Usually a secondary fuse behind the cover where the Blower is. If you change the fuse and still have no power you have a wire issue. Could be a loose connection, or a wiring shorting out somewhere.
Let's hope the fuse takes care of it. Be sure to unplug it before. Checking anything. 220 volt will hurt you. Hope this helps you..

I spun the dryer drum the wrong way and it made a snap
You did not post the model number but there is a belt that wraps around the drum and there is a pulley that keeps the belt tight. If you turn the drum the wrong way, there is an outstanding chance that the belt has slipped off the pulley and there is a not start switch attached to it. Without the model number, that is all I can say.
