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!

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.

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..

The igniter or gas valve could be defective.

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

A repair manual would have to be ordered directly from Amana.

Amana Dryers | Answered on Jun 04, 2019

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

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.
