Controls work. Dryer does not ignite nor spin when turned on. Makes a "click" does when button is pushed to turn on, but nothing happens.
You will want to check the door switch for continuity in the closed position. If there is no continuity then the switch is faulty and would need to be replaced. Also test the thermal fuse and make sure that it has continuity. In most cases one of these 2 components would be faulty and be in need of replacement. Worst case would be both being good and the motor being faulty.
We just replaced our heating element in our Amana dryer model # ned7200tw, I was able to do a test run and that was it now it will turn on but it makes a click noise when I hit start.
If the motor is running but the heating element is still not coming on then you will want to check for power at the control board to see if it is sending power to the element. If there is not power then replace the control board.
dryer shows a e5 error code. Do I need a thermal sensor?
Answer Brad, There is no E5 error code in the dryer display, it is most likely a "tS" code, which indicates a heat / air flow issue. Check and make sure the exhaust venting and vent hood are not restricted or kinked, and the dryer lint filter isn't clogged, first. Replace the thermistor 35001191 if all's OK.
Will a bad thermistor cause the dryer not to heat at all?
Answer Hello Grumpy. Yes, the thermistor can cause the dryer not to heat if it is bad in the unit.
My Amana dryer just gave us a TS service error code. I cleaned the lint trap and everything but it is still giving me the error code. I checked online and it appears that the thermister is bad. I am unable to test to see if it is working or not. Is this the most likely reason for the TS error?
Answer Luis, The "TS" error code does indicate a heating issue as well " tS > Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed > The Thermistor resistance is very low. > Check for: Clogged lint screen. - Restricted vent system. Check Thermistor resistance (10,000 ohms at room temperature). - Check for diagnostic code 1." It's best that you check the thermistor 35001191 resistance at the control board connection, that way you check the complete circuit, wiring and all at the "white" connector across pin#2(blue) and pin#6(red) If the resistance is in range, then you'll need the control board 35001153.
The dryer is not heating up, what part do we need to order? Don't see a heating element?
Answer Hello Ida, The model number you provided is not correct. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
