Q:

dryer issue ALE643RBW

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on the Amana Dryer, Model: ALE643RBW. I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble with the dryer not heating and will gladly look into what could be causing this issue. On reviewing the model, it appears that there could be a number of issues with the dryer, they mostly have to do with the thermostats or the fuse or the thermistor. I would recommend you have a technician take a look into the dryer to verify which part it would be, due to the fact there are two thermostats a thermal fuse and the thermistor. 

Safety Warning: before beginning the repair, disconnect the power supply to the dryer to prevent risk of injury from electrical shock.  

If you don’t feel confident/comfortable repairing this problem yourself, then you can have a sears technician repair it at your home. The link and phone number for our technicians services: Sears Home Services or 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and have a wonderful rest of your day.

This dryer does have drum rollers and a front and back felt drum seal. Either of these parts could cause the problem you describe. You would need to raise the top and remove the front panel to remove the drum to service these parts. It would be a medium difficulty for a do-it-yourself project. Both seals and the drum roller would cost approximately $50 dollars. A service call would cost about $100 dollars. You can check further about a service call at the following site: Sears Home Services . If you wish to do-it-yourself the image below may be helpful. It shows a similar dryer. you might start by removing the lower access panel and see if you can locate the noise. If you do-it-yourself please remember to unplug the dryer first.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

You did not tell me if you're talking about a timed cycle or an automatic cycle. The first thing I need you to do is start a regular timed cycle and let me know if the timer advances and shuts off. The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Landell, My apologies for stringing this out so long. The timer does not advance or shut-off in a timed cycle or an automatic cycle. The dryer runs, it heats, but the timer doesn't move. I am confident of my abilities and would really appreciate some more discussion to help me pinpoint and fix this issue. Thanks for the help...regards, Steve
