Using diagnostic information from the internet, I determined that the motor in my Amana clothes dryer was bad. I ordered the part, found an internet site that showed how to open the cabinet and access the old motor, and made the switch myself. The dryer now is working normally.

Disconnected The Power, Took The Front Panel Off The Bottom Of The Dryer. Remove The Black Plastic Duct, Remove The Steel Cover For The Blower Wheel. Spin The Blower Wheel Off While Holding The Motor To Prevent It From Turning. Remove The Blower Housing. Pull The Motor Forward, TAKE NOTE OF HOW THE BELT GOES ON THE PULLEY! Release The Belt From The Pulley. Remove The Motor From The Mount, Disconnect The Electric Plug From The Motor. Pretty Simple Really. Reassemble In Reverse!

Removed front of dryer, first the lower then the upper front covers. Removed front drum support, front blower housing cover. Removed belt, and then motor with housing and blower wheel attached. Broke wheel and cover off motor, placed motor in vise to remove threaded nut from motor drive shaft (nut was seized). Reinstalled motor and belt. Installed new housing and blower wheel. Reassembled dryer. Note if old blower wheel had come off repair would have taken half the time and been significantly easier to perform.

Watched the video on the same web site where I found the parts! The video showed the exact model I had. Found that someone had left off the front washer on the Drum Support Roller and would not have realized this if it was not described in the video!

Dryer Would Not Start But Light Up

Followed the video from the same web site. If you don't think you can do the repair you are wrong. I ordered the two parts suggested just in case it was one or the other. Cost plus shipping was under $35. Helpful hint tackle the high limit thermal fuse first that's what was wrong with our dryer. If anything you have a good door switch on hand and still well ahead of the game. I'm glad my wife made me order it. Easy install. I sure it would have cost a hell of a lot more just to get some one to look at it and then fix it. I'm the type to just pay the money to get it fixed.

Noise sounded like a pulley noise so I decided to replace the drum rollers and belt and idler lever pulley. The problem was the idler lever pulley but it was a good idea to replace the other parts while the unit is apart. Not a difficult repair. Thanks for your video on how to replace parts.

Screeching-metal on metal!

Thanks to all the comments and instructional video this 'Mom' was able to chose a couple of parts that I felt would fix the noise and replaced them myself! Took me closer to 2 hours due to the top on my dryer came off a little different than in the video and you definitely need the ring pliers if your are replacing the Drum Support Rollers! So borrow or buy a pair if you don't own them before you start :) Now I don't have to turn the dryer off to get my headache (from the screeching/squeaking) to stop. Quiet! Love It!

After getting on-line to your site we looked up what the problem could be after receiving the dryer from a friend to transfer from electric to gas to save money. First we thought it to be the ignitor and after receiving it so quickly it still didn't work so went to your site again and found the Flame sensor. They were both defective and now it works wonderful!!! Your site also explains what and how to repair the appliance, which my husband appreciated! We are glad you contacted us because your site did not show that we could send you and e-mail Thanking your company for the excellant service we received. Your prices can't compare to other companies either, we were amazed on the differences. When you say the next day delivery, you mean the next day!!! Thankyou and you are now in my Favorites if ever needing parts for other appliances we own.
