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.
The dryer seems to heat up just fine. Clothes going into it are damp, not soaking wet. We dont overload the dryer.
- Cleaned the lint filter thoroughly
- Made sure there is no blockage between vent and outside
- Hose connection is a small elbow - no problems there
Im perplexed , wife is irritated .
Would love some tips to try or just to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks.

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