My Amana Drier Model LE8407W2
Most dryers are designed to be repaired from the rear. On the rear probably the whole back panel unscrews. Giving access to the duct where the heating element is located. Make sure to have the dryer unplugged while servicing it to prevent getting electrocuted. Your heating element will be inside of a metal duct that feeds hot air into the dryer remove it and inspect it for breaks in the coils of wire or burned areas. Having a good volt meter that checks continuity is a great tool to check dryer parts. There are several over heat sensors that can go bad over time to and can prevent the dryer from heating. These sensors and the heating element can all be checked using the volt meter on the continuity setting. Having a cell phone on hand helps to take pictures of wiring and connections inside the dryer before unhooking them to aid in reassembly. With sensors or element unplugged and a volt meter on continuity setting touch the red probe to one side of a connector and the black probe to the other side if there's no numbers or a beep on your volt meter suspect that part bad. I have fixed several dryers this way. Hope this helps you.

Amana washing machine mod ntw4750yqo wont start no lights does nothing
If the washer is acting as if it is getting no power, but you have checked the power wall outlet ... there is a chance that the power cord itself has failed. I found a reference to someone who had a pinched power cord that had shorted out ... resulting in the washer getting zero power.
Carefully inspect your cord ... but the challenge is that you may not be able to see visible damage.
Another reason for no power to the washer can be that an internal non-replaceable fuse on the circuit board has blown.
