Solutions for your Amana dryer repair issues

Whether you have a front-load dryer or a combination washer-dryer unit, the experts at Sears Home Services can perform Amana dryer repairs whether your problem is big or small. A service call involves troubleshooting the appliance's problem and making repairs fast. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your dryer's life.

Dryer fails to heat up

If your Amana dryer drum turns, but doesn't heat properly to effectively dry clothes, it could be time to replace the thermal fuse, thermostat, or heating element. Any of these problems can be caused by blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, or consistently overloading the dryer. In natural gas models, it could also be a sign that gas is not flowing to the dryer.

Dryer vibration issues

If your Amana dryer makes strange noises or vibrates, the dryer drum seal could have failed and needs replacement. This is caused by frequent overloading or contact with foreign objects. A thumping or squeaking sound could also be a sign of failed or worn glides, rollers, or bearings, all parts that can wear out over time.

Dryer not running properly

If your Amana dryer won't turn on or fails to operate consistently, make sure the circuit breaker has not tripped and the power cord is not broken. Other problems could be a broken door switch, a faulty thermal fuse, or a failed motor.

If the dryer motor runs, but the drum doesn't rotate, the belt might be stretched or broken. If power is getting to the dryer, but it won't run properly, it's time to call a certified dryer repair technician.

Dryer runs, but shuts off quickly

When a Amana dryer drum spins, but then shuts off quickly, it could be a sign of a broken thermostat caused by blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, or consistently overloading the dryer. A malfunctioning thermostat could also overheat the dryer to the point of becoming a fire hazard. Replacing the thermostat is usually required.

Preventive maintenance by dryer repair experts

Scheduling regular appliance service ensures your Amana dryer will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.

When you request the Washer and Dryer Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect both appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning some internal components.

Amana Dryer repair FAQ

Is it better to replace or repair a Amana dryer?

With proper maintenance, you can count on your Amana dryer to perform well for a decade or more. The size of your household, which dictates how often the machine is used, will also affect its lifespan. If your unit is less than eight years old, and the dryer repair service is less than half the cost of a new dryer, it's typically more economical to repair the appliance.

How much is the typical cost of a Amana dryer repair?

Costs for a Amana dryer repair job can vary by the type of issue, and the parts and time required to complete the service. The average dryer repair costs $200 to $265. Replacing a thermostat or thermal fuse, both common dryer repairs, costs around $150, while installing a new electronic control board can run more than $400.

If your dryer can't be repaired, you'll typically pay only a service appointment fee, and you'll be eligible for a discount on a new dryer.

For homeowners with a Sears Home Services appliance warranty plan, many services or replacements are covered and any repairs are guaranteed for 180 days.

Do you need an appliance repair expert for a Amana dryer problem?

While you might be able to use the owner's manual for dryer troubleshooting of basic problems or error messages on electronic models, it's often best to contact a certified Sears Home Service repair technician to diagnose problems inside the housing.

The most common dryer replacement parts are the heating element, thermal fuse, thermostat, and door switch, and Sears Home Services stocks replacement parts for many models. If your dryer is still under warranty, follow the requirements in the agreement.

What is the best way to prevent expensive Amana dryer repairs?

The most important things to do on a regular basis to prevent part failures and extend the life of your Amana dryer are to clean the lint filter after each use and intermittently clean the vents at the back of the machine and the outlet from the home.

Allowing lint to build up can make your dryer overheat and cause parts to fail. Annual maintenance by an appliance repair company to clean the machine and check for other problems can also prevent part failures and extend the life of your dryer.
