Not producing heat. ALE643RAW-PALE643RAW Amana Dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Amana dryer model number ALE643RAW-PALE643RAW .

Sorry to hear of the problem with the dryer.   

 In helping with your dryer.  The first thing to let everyone know is that they must first check there lint screen.  Pull it out and make sure the vent the screen goes into is not plugged.   Next check the vent area where it goes outside the house.   A dryer has to have a free movement of air to prevent heating problems and fire hazzards.

I would first open the dryer door.  Close it a little harder than normal to get a tight closure.  Sometimes that helps. The timer is the cause of not moving and could also be the trouble of not heating.  Did all of this go bad at one time?   If it did then would heavily assume you need a new timer.  But try the door suggestion first.

The timer can be checked with a ohm meter and here are some suggestions also for the heat.   In the dryer is the heating element and a thermal fuse.  The thermal fuse is a very very important part to look at for these problems also.   I have the list in the links below.   Again you can check the heating element and thermal fuse is you can get you an ohm meter.
