Why is my Amana dryer not starting?

Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that either circuit breaker has not tripped. You can test the breaker by turning the breaker off and then back on. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.

What causes a dryer to stop blowing hot air?

If you can’t feel air blowing, then it’s probably clogged. Another possible reason why your clothes dryer is no longer producing hot air is because the heating element is broken. Assuming your exhaust vent isn’t clogged, and the motor/drum are turning properly, a broken heating element is the most likely culprit.

Are all thermal fuses the same?

All dryers sold in the United States are legally required to have a thermal fuse. This is different from the electrical fuses that are found in many appliances, and a dryer might have both. A thermal fuse will blow when the temperature gets too high, not when it’s drawing too much current.
