Default Dryer just stops
Model Number: ALE868QAW   Brand: Amana   Age: 1 - 5 years

I picked this thing up about a year ago, it was doing this in the beginning but I thought I had ironed the problems out but now they have come back. The dryer functions normally for the most part but occasionally it will stop mid cycle and not want to restart. When it stops and I push the button to make it start there is a loud humming like the drive motor is in a bind and cannot turn the drum. This is also the sound it makes as it stops and turns off. I replaced one roller and am thinking another might be the culprit now but my main question is could something electrical be causing this?

I know it has to either be the motor or something the drum is dragging on, as the problem seems to be more prevalent when the drum is more full. How would I go about testing if the motor is bad?

The motor gets hot it shuts down. the heavier the load, the greater the load on the motor is. Time for a new one. I don't know of any other test on the motor, besides the one that it is already presenting to you. http://www.amazon.com/Amana-Dryer-Mo...ywords=2200376

Well I ordered the motor and it fixed the problem, thanks!

But, when I put it on auto mode it will cut off long b4 the clothes are dry, I have replaced the 2 moisture sensors. What could be causing this?

Check the vent. Here's the test. Pull the lint trap out an then turn it on....put your hand down the lint trap hole an see if it's got great air flow. Should be a nice flow all around your hand. The best way to do this actually is to remove the vent hose an then place your hand down the hole with it on an then put the vent back on an see the difference. Bad air flow will cause the clothes to not dry, they'd be hot to the touch, but not dry.

Hmm, that makes sense but I just had the entire thing apart replacing the motor and there was no obstruction... I can test it like you say but it drys fine if I just use the manual timer.
