Question about Dryers

Clothes won't dry

When I try to dry a load of clothes they don't dry. when I open the dryer door there is a lot of steam and the clothes seem more moist than when I put them in. I have already checked the lint catcher on top but it is pretty clean. Is there an exhaust outlet/tube somewhere on it that may be clogged? If so where is it located? it does not appear to be on the back,
Thanks

Dryers exhaust from either of 4 directions! left side, right side, rear, or straight down through the floor!
Yes the outside exhaust vent may have a screen to keep small animals from going in!
If the screen is even half clogged with lint you will have the identical problem.

Please give me a good rating for this most likely solution, Please!

Remember if any appliance is 9 years old or more, a new one will be much much more cost efficient and pay for it self in only a couple of years!

My dryer won't dry


This particular dryer has a blower wheel that is plastic. Over time the wheel gets wobbly and loose. If you hear a rattle that could be the loose blower wheel. This causes the dryer to overheat and take 3 times as long to dry clothes because it trips the limits. To get into the dryer and find out you need to first remove the door. Nice how to video from Angel:

I have a fridgedaire front load dryer (Model AEQ6700FS0) and it will start up, run for about 30 seconds and then it stops tumbling and the 3 lights on the far right (drying, cooldown, extended tumble)...


This is just a guess in a way, as I don't have specific knowledge about your particular model, but could it be a wrinkle prevention feature? I know some dryers have a feature which will cycle the dryer on for an occasional short tumble if the regular cycle ends and the clothes have not been removed. Opening the door might be all it takes to cancel the function.

Dryer does not dry clothes but seems to be hot inside when i open the door


Most of these guys get a bad blower wheel. The heat melts the hub causing it to spin free and airflow is reduced. This makes it take fifty forevers to dry a load of clothes. More Here

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?


Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

Dryer gets VERY hot but clothes do not dry


Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Remove the rear vent and run a load.
If it dries normally repair your vent.
It (the vent)may be clogged internally.
