AMANA dryer heats at first then runs cool
« on: October 15, 2009, 07:11:35 PM »
This dryer heats at first in the low heat setting but then runs cool (80 deg.) Seems to run ok on the higher heat setting. Then vent is clean. Would the cycling thermostat cause this?

Thanks for any advice

Model ALE331RAW

Have you checked to see if that blower is loose? Rare if so. I would change the control thermostat.
