dryer wouldn't heat

  • Customer: Joseph from Chadds Ford, PA

should have bought and used a voltmeter first. replaced heating element and fuse and other thermostat before I got a voltmeter and realized it was the cycling thermostat that was bad. easy after that

Dryer was not putting out any heat. Clothes were still wet after completing a full cycle

I checked all of the most commonly affected parts (as described on this site) with an ohmmeter (My first time but very easy to use). The only exception was the heating coil but this appeared to be working fine. The cycling thermostat showed resistance so I ordered a new one here. Replaced it and now the drying is working like new! The informational youtubes, diagnosis, purchase and repair only took me an hour. Never tried fixing an appliance myself before but so satisfying! $25 dollars and convenient timing is much better than the $350 I spent to have an appliance repairman fix my washer.

Dryer would not shut off, constant heat.

Replacing the cycling thermostat went really fast and easy. Unplug the dryer. Remove the 6-8 hex-head screws holding the back panel in place. The thermostat location is in the lower left. below the black discharge air duct. Note the location and/or tag the wires connected to it. Pull off the wires and remove the screw holding the thermostat in place and remove it. Reverse the procedure for installation of the new thermostat. Where this got tricky was it did not solve the problem. A strict diagnosis based on the electrical schematic alone would have, and did, indicate a faulty thermostat, i.e. on that was not opening. However, what I found was surprising. The heating element coil had broken and part of it had "welded" to the casing, grounding it and effectively turning the 240V heater into a 120V heater. This allowed the heater to provide heat (low heat). However, the timer motor needs 240V to operate and since one leg of the heater was grounded the timer could not get 240V when the thermostat cycled off. Replacing the heating element solved the problem.

no heat. ignitor glowed but burner would not light

eliminated themostats and ignitor as problem. the next logical problem was gas valve coils. turned out to be the problem and machine is back in service. gave machine a good cleaning and vacume job while it was apart and learned that drying rugs in it had caused a build up of rubber backing material in a couple of areas. could have been a fire hazzard. periodic cleaning inside is a must for fire safety

first I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back of the dryer with a 1/4" nut driver. with the back off using the same 1/4" nut driver I removed the one screw that holds the cycling t-stat slowly remove the t-stat and take one wire off at a time and plug it onto the new t-stat once all wires are replaced. place the t-stat back in and secure with the screw. Then put the back of the dryer back on. put the dryer vent hose back on. plug in and away you go. repair done. If that doesn't fix it. Then the next step is probably to check the gas valve coils. That is a little more difficult repair but not to hard.

not heating up

pull out lint screen, removed 2 screws. lifted top up. removed 2 screws from the front,disconnected wiring harness. removed the drum and belt. located and removed the igniter, sensor, and coil valves. replaced all with new parts. reassembled. now it heats up. i believe that i only needed the coil valves. coil valves not shown on parts list, i purchased later. everything was very accessible with the drum removed.

Our dryer would not ignite, so I figured it was the radiant flame sensor. Well, I out that in and still nothing. I found out that the Tube Burner was also burned off on the flame end, by the igniter. I also ordered that part. installed it, and it works beautifully.

On the Amana dryer, I had to remove the top panel. then the front panel to access the burner assembly. I also had to remove the gas pipe coming to the burner, because I replaced the tube burner assembly at the same time. There is only one screw that holds that back end of that gas pipe. The thermal flame sensor is on the left side of the burning chamber, with only one small Phillips head screw. just remove the 2 wires, keeping track of which terminal they belong. Just twist the sensor out of the small slot, and out it comes. The tube burner assembly is fastened with 2 screws. The entire burner assembly comes out in one piece, but be real careful not to bang the igniter when removing it. The coil assembly has 2 wires, which you cannot get wrong, because one has 2 prongs, the other has 3 wires.The local repair shop wanted 90 bucks per hour, plus parts, and I installed both the burner tube and radiant flame sensor for around $80.

Flame when out to fast. Dryer did not get hot enough.

Unplugged electrical cord to dryer. removed the front cover 2 screws on the bottom. Lifted front cover off. Unplugged the 2 wires going to the old flame sensor. Used nut driver to remove 1 screw holding the flame sensor in. Removed old sensor replaced with new one. Reattached the 2 wires back on to the new flame sensor. Tested. Flame stayed on longer! Dryer works great dryer is 20 years old and still running like new now. Part was the exact match I needed.

I followed the directions on your site. I pulled out the filter on the top of the machine. Then removed the two screws where the filter is located, I am not sure I would have found those screws had it not been for your directions. I then pulled up on the top of the machine by grabbing the sides near the front of the top, it came right up. I then raised it enough to place a broom handle to hold the top up so I could reach the switch. I removed the two screws holding the switch and then pulled the connector apart. I then replaced the switch with the two screws and plugged the connector back together. Removed the broom handle and closed the top and replaced the two screws I removed by the filter. Replaced the filter and started the machine running and opened the door and it turned off and the light came on. It took me about twenty minutes.
