If the igniter doesn't glow, then you probably have a bad igniter! You can use an ohmmeter to test it. Unplug the dryer before you start working on it. then take the dryer apart until you can get to the igniter. Unplug the igniter plug, and measure it's resistance. If it's less than 100 ohms, then it is okay, but if it's reading over 1000 ohms (or an open circuit), then it is bad and needs to be replaced.

E 5 Usually means open fuse. Usually a secondary fuse behind the cover where the Blower is. If you change the fuse and still have no power you have a wire issue. Could be a loose connection, or a wiring shorting out somewhere.
Let's hope the fuse takes care of it. Be sure to unplug it before. Checking anything. 220 volt will hurt you. Hope this helps you..

A repair manual would have to be ordered directly from Amana.

You need to call customer service or that info. It still should be under warranty, check and if so call for service.

You did not post the model number but there is a belt that wraps around the drum and there is a pulley that keeps the belt tight. If you turn the drum the wrong way, there is an outstanding chance that the belt has slipped off the pulley and there is a not start switch attached to it. Without the model number, that is all I can say.

Did you have a problem restarting the dryer after each use? It could be a bad motor or open contact in the timer.I would also check the wiring harness and the plug going to the motor. Hope this helps
