Question about Frigidaire AEQ7000ES Dryer
We just purchase this dryer (along with the matching washer, which works great). The dryer won't completely dry our clothes. There almost always seems to be a bit of dampness in the clothes, whether a towel load, jeans load, socks and underwear load, or knit shirt load.
We tried using an extra spin on the washer to remove more moisture, but that didn't work. We tried using Maximum heat along with the More Dry option, but that didn't work. If we restart the dryver cycle (which always includes 5 minutes of drying before the automatic sensor adjustment occurs), the clothes come out nice and dry.
Is there anything else we should try or look out for before calling into Frigidaire or Sears (purchased there)?
1. Gas valve coilsIgniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.
Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).
4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.
