Question about Frigidaire GLER341A Electric Dryer
I have a Frigidaire electric dryer GLER341A and it takes too long to dry. The vent system is fine and just to be sure I removed the hose from the vent and ran it with the same results. I found the 4.4k ohm power resistor falling apart on the back of the timer knob and it was barely even attached and all broken. I replaced it and the dryer seems to work a little better but still takes too long to dry. Do you think my heating element is partially bad. The dryer used to dry the clothes on MEDIUM and would burn them on HIGH when we firts bought it. Then over time it wouldn't dry on MEDIUM, only on HIGH. Now they do not dry all the way on high even after replacing the resistor. My next step would be the heating element or thermostats. Do you know the correct resistance readings for the parts.
First thing I would do is to take the drum out of the dryer and make sure the back is not all clogged up with lint. That is a very common problem with Frigdaire dryers. The back is where the dryer draws the heat from and it sounds like you have plenty of heat. The only place the heat will go is up and that may be why you are geting burn marks. I wold also clean out the front where the lit filter is that to gets blocked up. I think if you check all that ad clean it out good the dryer should work just fine.
