    Mike thank you for the quick reply. I got the old vacuum out and opened the front of the dryer and vacuumed everything. I see where the problem is when I look into the dryer in the back where all of the holes are there is alot of lint build up but it wont vacuum through the holes and I can't figure out how to get to that spot. Do I have to take the whole back off the dryer? I have a frigidaire laundry center with the dryer on the top. Thank you again for all of your help!!

Hi klsuch.
When a dryer starts taking too long to dry usually there can only be one problem.
A lack of air flow.
To solve this make sure you lint screan is clean everytime you use the dryer and then check the vent in the back of the dryer. Take the vent looses from the dryer and start the dryer and feel the amount of air exiting the machine. If you do not have good air movement then you may have a blockage in the dryer or even a bad blower wheel. If the air pressure is good you may have a blockage somewhere between the dryer vent and the exhaust outside. Once you get all the lint and any little critters that may have built nests in your vent cleared out your problem should be gone. If you find that the blower wheel may be bad let me know and I can help you with the replacement. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.

I have a frigidaire gallery heavy duty dryer, gas burning. It has heated/dried my laundry less and less, and now does not seen to heat up at all. What part do I need to replace?


You may have aproblem withthe venting. Make sure the the fan can blow freely through and out the vent. If this gets parially blocked it cuts down the air flow and will make the dryer run too hot and keep the burner off. The other thing taht it could be is the temperature sensor that turns the gas burner on and off. Sometimes they will go bad and not let the burner stay on long enough to heat properly.

Dryer will not heat-up, clothes stay wet even after hours of drying! gas is on, gas bill payed,turning needlessly, no drying.


It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
