    Default Amana Dryer Not Drying Clothes

    Amana Commerical Quality (steel drum)
    120/240 - 60 amp - 3 wire circuit
    Raythron Appliance Model # LEA60AW
    Manuf. Model #PLEA60AW

    Dryer worked like a champ from new in May, 1998 till about a month or so ago.

    Bottom line is its just not drying the clothes by the end of the cycle.
    I have:
    • Cleaned the lint filter thoroughly
    • Made sure there is no blockage between vent and outside
    • Hose connection is a small elbow - no problems there
    The dryer seems to heat up just fine. Clothes going into it are damp, not soaking wet. We dont overload the dryer.

    Im perplexed , wife is irritated .

    Would love some tips to try or just to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Since you said the vent is fine, its possible its a bad thermostat or heating element starting to go out.

    Here's a couple good places to start:
