Several reasons: the Chinese knew for sure that there were lands to the West, and wanted to make the most of creating connections between these lands and cultures, whether that be through diplomacy or through the use of force. America, on the other hand, was on the East across the wide Pacific. For all they knew it was an unending sea with no land at the end. Furthermore, near the end of his life, the emperor that supported Zheng He (Yongle) died and his son forbade any more expeditions. Zheng He attempted one more expedition but going against this decree bough him no friends and he started falling out of favour, with less resources and means to undertake an expedition the size of which one to America would require.
