I have the Amana gas dryer above. Several weeks ago it stopped working. No matter what cycle it was set to, pushing in to start would not work. Replaced the timer unit and worked fine until yesterday. After running a while, it dryer stops working and pushing in timer to start will not work on any cycle. After dryer cools, unit will work again as normal. Is the issue the thermostat or do you suspect something else?

Eric for Model Number ALG643RBW

ANSWER Hello Eric. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor is bad in the unit and will need to be replaced. If the motor over heats and shuts off, you will have to wait for it to cool to restart the motor in the unit.
