Question about Frigidaire Dryers

1 Answer

Clothes aren't drying properly

This dryer is fairly new (no warranty).
We pulled it out from the wall to check for lint blockages and found none. We vaccuumed the hoses and out side vents anyway and then put in a small load of towels. It took over 2 hrs and they were almost dry.
You can hear the gas go on and it does get hot. Although maybe not hot enough? How can we fix this?

    We checked all and my husband decided to run a towel through the vent from the dryer to the outside of vent and pulled out an old pair of boxer shorts (LOL) and other debree. We thought it was clear because we saw light but we were wrong.

    Thank you so much for your help. It was greatly appreciated.

Clothes aren't drying...


First check and clean the lint trap. Next turn on the dryer and go outside to the dryer vent and make sure you have good airflow coming out. If you don't have good airflow then there is a blockage in the vent system somewhere.

My dryer does not heat. Clothes do not dry.


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose. If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

Clothes arent getting dry


If yours is a gas dryer check out the ignitor for the spark for the burner. It should click within 30 seconds upon starting up ther dryer with the switch set to the heat mode. If not clicking the ignitor is in need of a replacement

Dryer takes to long too dry


You need to check your vent and vent hose for blockage. Pull the drier away from the wall and remove the hose check the hose for any thing that will stop it up, then look at the vent outside for blockage. These vents must be clear or it will not let out the moist air to dry the clothes. Also you may have to ck down in the lint screen area for lint that has fallen in there, run your vacuum in the blow mode and blow this area out.

My dryer is really hot when it is running, but is taking a really long time to dry the clothes


Make sure you check your exhaust hose. It shuld be clear of any lint , and properly exhausted to outside of the home . Try turning on the druer with no load and no heat , find your outside vent and check for air flow . If none is felt you suhld move your dryer away from wall ( if aplicable ) and disconnect the hose and check for any blockage , You can even try the above step with the vent hose disconnected to make sure that the dryer it self is properly venting ( feel for ALOT of air coming out of exhaust port ) . If only a miniscule amount of air ( or none at all ) is coming out of the back of the unit you may have to call a technician to come in and clear out the internal duct work .

TIMMER RUNNING BUT NOTHING DRY


Q - Dryer takes too long to dry or multiple times to dry a load

A1- Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat orpocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.
