Dryer door pops open during cycle


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer door keeps popping open during the cycle. I suggest making sure that the door has been completely closed before starting the cycle. If this is done, and the door is still popping open, there might be something going on with the door latch. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door keeps opening mid-cycle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Dryer door opens during drying cycle, had it "repaired" but still opening - worked originally well for about 2 years - but cannot get it to stay closed for the entire drying cycle.


these newer dryers are such garbage with their thin Sheet metal. see if the door is bent by the hinges. Dropping clothes on the doors bend these newer machines. then they don't seat correctly

Shuts off during autodry cycle. stays on during timed cycle but clothes are wrinkled ans too hot at end of cycle.


if it works on auto but not on time you have a bad timer,it's not counting down,it's better to use auto anyway,when the clothes dry the dryer shuts off on it's own,this way your not using extra electricity,if your clothes dry in 30 minutes and it's on 60 minutes it will still run after the clothes are dry on auto it doesn't.if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,your missing a couple of letters on the model number.

My dryer keeps stoping during the cycle and the door opens. Do you have any suggestion? Thank you very much


most likely you have a bad door switch your dryer will stop when the door is opened another way of by passing this switch would be to find it onthe inside of your dryer and connect the two wires together this is only a temporary fix your dryer would always run even withthe door open by doing this best thing to door is look online marone appliace call them give them your model number order a door switch ad you might even need a door latch also if your door is not staying closed hope this helps

Door will not stay latched during the drying cycle. The door kicks open at the slightest brush by drying clothes.


There are many different door latches, Most of them are 2 pices, the part on the dryer door and the reciver on the frame. Most of them come in a kit with both pices. you will need the model number to get the part numer when calling.

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer MDG300AW and the flame goes out.


Well, first of all, the flame is not supposed to be continuous... it cycles on and off during the dry cycle because it staying on would incinerate your clothing. However, there are magnetic coils that do often go bad and cause the valve to stop opening after the beginning of the cycle... so you get a flame in the beginning, but if you were to sit there for 5 minutes with the dryer running, you would find that the flame stopped lighting completely.

They are pretty easy to replace... you will have to unscrew the little plastic pieces from the inside edge of the door, and unscrew the hinges and remove the door, then pull the front panel off (pull at the top).

Of course... UNPLUG before opening any appliance.

here's a picture of what you are looking for... they are completely outside the gas line, so changing them is very simple and doesn't require any handling of the gas. they are held on with a small metal plate.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.
