Customer Question
My dryer is one...

My dryer is one year and one month old. When I turned it on there was a loud metallic jangling noise-- I tried about three times and then it would not turn on

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Amana dryer 13 months old I cannot find model number

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I do not know what to do

I would be calling the place where it was bought as a first point of contact and ask for their advice before attempting a home repair in this case

Although the letter of the law says 12 months warranty, there is a very dim view taken by Ombudsmen regarding items "not fit for purpose" and often, the mention of this will focus the mind of the manufacturer to rectify a problem and avoid adverse publicity...
