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?

I'm thinking I have a thermostat issue. The gas dryer fires up fine when tested (with front panel removed) but doesn't end up drying the clothes. The exhaust is clean. Thanks in advance.

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?

This thermostat has three terminals for connections. On this fuse the outside terminals are closed but the middle terminal is open to the other two. Are these the correct measurements or is this an indication that this part has failed? I am not certain this is two fuses in one device or the third terminal serves another purpose.

My Amana Dryer DLE330RAW takes at least 2 cycles to dry a load (on any cycle, auto or timed) on Low temp. In the last week I have cleaned out the lint all through the machine and through the exhaust outlet, checked if it makes a difference if the house exhaust line is disconnected (just blowing into the laundry room), it doesn't, and replaced the cycling thermostat and thermostat heater, the heater coil itself and the overtemp thermostat. I measured the outlet temp from the machine to check for cycling and it DOES cycle, only the heat at the outlet is only cycling from 90 deg to 115-120 deg, but I've read this should cycle from 110 to 155 which would account for why it takes so long to dry anything. Any ideas, on what to change?

Our dryer starts and runs (ok) for a short time. It shuts down early (very) and only buzzes if you try to restart it (hot) If you wait until it cools down it will start and run again with the same problem. If you run it without heat it will run ok for a full cycle. I've cleaned the machines and the vent goes all to way to the outside totally clear of lint etc (It has a cold breeze at the Machines (vent) connection point. I'm fairly good with tools (And fixed our washer much to everyones surprise - even me) Can you suggest anything I can check or an obvious (Replace this part and it should be good to go) type of thing?
