Question about Amana NED7200TW Electric Dryer
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Amana dryer, (as you may or may not know this model is built by Samsung) and it is displaying a e5 error (actually looks like a e5 error, but it is indeed t5 but that's because of the digital display)...it is actually a "temperature sensor" error, hence the "ts".
As described in the service manual from Maytag...
"tS" Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed - The Thermistor resistance is very low.
Clogged lint screen. (remove and wash under hot water & mild soap...a old toothbrush works well for scrubbing)
Restricted vent system.
Check Thermistor resistance...10000 ohms @ 77°F/25°C
If you've replaced the thermistor already, that leaves either poor air flow due to clogged lint screen or clogged exhaust somewhere else along the line. Here's what I would suggest you try. Remove the lint filter (clean it as mentioned above) and unfasten the vent from the back/side of the dryer, whatever the case on your machine. Run it through a cycle without a load and post back with the results.
I can send you the service manual if you think it may help you move forward,(It says Maytag, but those are Amana/Samsung as well) but you'd need to provide an email address for me to attach it to. It is a "pdf" and 9.9mb in size.
I'll watch for your reply.

E5 is a thermister failure error which means that the thermister has gone bad and should be replaced. You can check if for continuity if it tests open then replace it else replace the control board. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
