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-

Gas dryer/ has just started taking long time to dry each load needing multible cycles of time. Is generating some heat, vent is clean, trap iis clean. What is keeping the dryer from heating up?


I suspect your gas valve coils are going out and need to be replaced. They can work when first used but later in the cycle one of them quits.

My amana DLG330RAW dryer won't stay on. it has a combo timer and start dial turn the dial to the timed settinG and push...dryer starts part way through the cycle, the dryer...


Hello PB,

What i would most suspect as being the problem of why the dryer just stops randomly before the cycle is done,is a problem with the door switch or the door catch...does the dryer restart as soon as you restart it?? if yes i would check that the door catch was broken so the door will pop open stopping the dryer. Also check the door switch using a meter set to measure ohms and see if the contact is burnt ( a good door switch will be zero ohms resistiance)

Whirlpool duet dryer model #wed9400swo Dryer door pops open, stopping the cycle. Dryer is about 2 years old. Can I fix this myself?


Hello,

The most probable thing causing the door to pop open isa weak/broken door catch, its very easy to replace. To find it look on the mid center door rim opposite the hinged side,you will see a rectangular shaped plastic piece,thats the door catch.To remove it use a screwdriver and pop it out by placing the screwdriver on the inside rim of it and prying it out. To install the new one line it up and pop it in by pressing on it with your thumb,when you get the part it will come with the rectangle peice and the peice that fits in door,the part that fits in door is probably going to be good and no reason to replace. The part # is 279570 it could be found on line by simply entering that part# in a google search

Good luck,i hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

Dryer drum is turning, but not drying the clothes. When I open the door, there is heat. Lint has been cleaned out


Check where the dryer vent comes out and make sure that there is a good amount of air coming out. If the fan is blowing, the drum is turning, and there is heat, the likely thing is that the dryer vent is partially blocked. Check the pipe leading out. Bird's nests are not uncommon. The only other thing I can think of is that the door catch is wearing out and the door is popping open, shutting the dryer off mid-cycle. Some dryers will continue to run the timer if the cycle is interrupted and it will appear that the dryer ran its full cycle, but in reality it shut off soon after it started.

Dryer was running with full load of clothes. Heard a loud pop twice, ran back to the laundry room and smelled like something burning. Turned dryer off, and now it won't start back. Also, the very top of...


Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?

Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.

During the drying cycle, the dryer door opens


Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.
