I have an Amana gas dryer. Dryer heats fine and runs but will not turn off. Control knob advances only part way from More Dry to Less Dry and then stays in that position. Dryer ran for several hours the other evening. Duct is clean. Any suggestions on what part I should focus on checking?
ANSWER Hello Kurt. Several parts can cause this issue. Failed cycling thermostat. Failed resistor. Heater assembly does not heat or burner
does not ignite. Heater assembly or burner shuts off
prematurely. Improper or inadequate exhaust system.
Weather hood flapper maybe restricted. Drying load too large. Timer motor is inoperative. Possible air leaks at seals. Failed moisture sensing control.
Most of these parts will need to be checked and tested to determine the issue with the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
