Hello,
Here is a link for an exploded view of your dryer

You may have a bad thermal limiter item # 1236 and your thermal safety switch is cutting in to disable power to your heater before it causes a fire. You may have a bad power resistor item # 1114 as well. Difficult to say which component is defective without being able to take measurements.. Hope this gets you headed in the right direction. Please remove or disable power before attempting to trouble shoot ( if you are doing this yourself)
Regards,
Rick

We have a gas dryer purchased in 1996, Model #CDG800W. The dryer has started to make a strange grinding sound when we're drying clothes. Any suggestions?


Most likely a bad blower wheel. Over time the hub gets hot, melts, wobbles out, and start to rub the blower housing. The wheel slips and makes it take a long time to dry the clothes. This causes the filter to warp and the top to get extremely hot.fdd151b.jpg513b315.jpga1f312f.jpg77fbb60.jpg

My electric dryer is becoming extremely hot during the drying cycle. I replaced a blown thermal fuse several weeks ago and the dryer was extremely hot at that time. The dryer runs but becomes so hot you...


Clothes will get very hot in the dry cycle, especially when the dryer is set to the warmest or hottest setting.
There are controls built into the unit to prevent it from overheating to the point of causing a fire. The thermal fuse you replaced is one of them (and I assume you replaced a perfectly good fuse with a new one as you said it was very hot.).
You might want to check the following if you feel the unit is getting too hot -

1) Make sure the lint screen is clean.
2) Make sure the hose between the back of the dryer and the exhaust duct at the wall wall is not kinked or full of lint.
3) Make sure the exhaust duct leading to outside of the house is clear and not full of lint.

Let me know what you find.

Dryer turns on, gets hot, but knob does not move with timer.


could be your operating thermostat on your heater or your timer if it runs on timed dry but not auto dry then it is a thermostat issue if it just does not run at all then it is a timer issue also make sure your vent is clear check by removing vent hose from back of unit and running a load if it works properly clean your vent.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

okay this is a easy problem, your dryer is clogged, check your vent hose and make sure it is not kinked, also check your vent duct from wall to outside...What is happening is your heat and lint is not going outside but it is going back into your dryer, causing your dryer to get extremely hot....

your dryer is suffocating

Clothes not drying


A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.
