SOURCE: Amana LE7153WM drier will not start... makes a low humming sound when you push in the select dial to start the drier

Hi John, W/D here.
Most likely scenario: squealing was either a belt or a bearing. Failure to run is probably a broken belt. Gain access to the back of the drier, with the power disconnected. Open the back and check the belt. If broken, replace it, and then rotate the drier by hand, listening for additional squeals and squeaks. If no other issues are noted, replace the back cover, plug it back in and try it out.
Best regards, --W/D--

What does it mean if my drier smells like gas?

It means there is a leak. You should turn off the gas flow to the drier immediately until it is fixed!

My amana gas dryer is making a loud knocking noise. it does heat

Sounds like you might have a pully belt problem, or perhaps you left a shoe in the drier? It is possible the guides for the drum are worn or out of alignment also.

My Amana dryer only stays hot for about 3 - 5 minutes. Then it turns the gas off. The drum rotates fine, the ignitor appears to work fine, but then it shuts itself off. Any suggestions?

Make certain the internal and external exhaust vent is clear of lint or any blockage. If there is no exhaust problem and the glow bar ignitor is working correctly,replace the gas valve coils.

My Amana gas oven won't heat up gas smell strong

Sounds like a sticking gas valve or a defective hot surface igniter. Open the broiler drawer or remove the bottom cover in the oven compartment. The oven usually has a hot surface igniter or a spark igniter. Turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start glowing. It should glow very bright. Once it is glowing the burner gas should come on. If you hear the gas come on it should light right away. If there is any delay shut off the oven and stay back. Let the gas clear out then inspect the area near the igniter and make sure the burner is not plugged(the little holes may have debris in them). If you turn on the oven and the igniter comes,glows brightly,no gas is heard but you can smell gas it is either a blocked burner orfice/assembly or sticking gas control valve. Try giving the burner and gas control valve a tap and see if it comes on. If you tap the control valve and it starts working then shut of the oven and try it several times. If it starts to come on and off now you may have cleared whatever debris was causing the problem. If it does it again then it could be the control valve or a weak hot surface igniter. The igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. Most of the time when I get this complaint it is the oven control valve that is sticking. Be very careful when doing these procedures....gas can build up in the oven compartment very quicky and flash if ignited. Always have the gas shut off valve at the back of the range within reach and the electrical outlet in case you need to unplug it.

Amana gas oven not working

The ignitor may be too weak to open the gas valve. If you have a volt/ohm meter capable of reading AMPS you can hook up to a ignitor wire and turn the oven ON. If you read less than 3.5 amps replace the ignitor. If 3.5 amps or more are read,replace the gas valve.
