My Amana Dryer is not putting out any heat. I took the heater Element out and see no breaks in the coil. Could I have another problem?
Answer Hello. You will need to test the thermal fuses and make sure they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1.
They should read closed for continuity. Hope this helps.

The dryer has quit heating, so I assume it's the heating element. Where would I find it on this model to take it out? Also, could it be anything else. We have ruled out the fuse in our fuse box.
Using a putty knife between the top and the front panel, push the spring clips on either side and lift the main top. Once you lift the top the heater would be at the back of the unit attached to the bulk head.
The breaker keeps blowing and it is not heating, is the heating element the problem?
Answer James, Yes, the heating element or the wires to the element could be shorted to chassis ground causing the breaker to trip open, and the no heat situation.
Where are heating element and fuses located?
Answer Hello Randy. You will need to raise the top on the dryer and remove the front panel on the unit. Once removed, the element is located under the drum on the left side of the unit.
How do I replace heating element?
Answer Hello Larry. You disconnect the power and lift the top panel and remove the front panel. Laying in the floor, you will see the element on the back wall on the left side. You can replace the element from there.
Got the new heating element, before we take the whole dryer apart, where is it located?
Answer Hello Mari. These are not hard to replace. If you remove the toe panel from the bottom of the front, you will see the element under the drum on the left side. You can replace it from there in the front.
I have admiral LE7121WM the dyer working and runs Its not getting heat and continue to run. Could this be the heat element or timer?
Answer Hello! Make sure the breaker hasn't tripped and that you have a full 240v volts going to the dryer. You'll need to check the thermostats and the heating element. They should read closed for continuity. Thanks.
