I have an Amana Gas Dryer, M/N ALG565SAW. This morning we turned it on it sounds as though the gas burner (fan) is operating but the tumbler is not rotating. I'm thinking the belt or the drive motor may be at issue. Can you provide me the information as to how to get to those components so that I can further diagnose? What might be other points to look at?
The bottom panel is just held on with 2 screws. remove the bottom panel and you should be able to see if the belt is on. I can tell you that it isnt the motor if the blower is spinning because the motor turns the blower wheel.
