Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer leaves my clothes linty when they're dried.

Even if I clean out the lint collector completely. It still happens.
Is my dryer the problem or is it the washer that's the culprit?

Check your vent hose for blockage and the vent housing for outside.If air doesn't flow through it to outside it cant remove the lint.

Frigidaire gas dryer model flxg52rbs3 is making strange noise and leaving burn marks on clothes. I want to take front cover off to clean out lint but I need to know how to take cover off.


The burner safety system is not working. The thermostat may need to be replaced. If it were too much lint, the dryer would not dry the clothes completely. Take the vent hose off the dryer and vacuum it out and if it connects to a wall that vents to the roof, then vacuum inside the wall too. Lint fires are more prevalent than those that vent thru the wall to the outside.

No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!


Instructions
  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

Clothes get caught


Instructions

1

Remove the lint screen from the GE electric clothes dryer.
2

Roll the lint from the screen with your hand. If the lint screen is clogged with fabric softener, fill a sink with hot water and add 1 to 2 tsp. dish soap.

3

Scrub the lint screen with a soft-bristle brush and soapy water. Rinse the lint screen thoroughly and shake off any excess water. Set the lint screen aside to air dry while you clean the dryer exterior.
4

Dampen a cloth with warm water and wring it out. Wipe over the GE electric dryer exterior to remove any lint, dust or product residue. If the dryer is very dirty, dip the cloth in the soapy water and wipe away any spots.
5

Wipe the GE clothes dryer with a towel to dry. Replace the lint screen when it's completely dry.

Does not Dry. Appears to have low air flow.


most of the problems associated with this problem are caused by lint being in vent tube to outside and restricting the air flow. clean out vent tube, from dryer to outside. this should help. repost if need be. good-day ! if you have too. clean out bottom of drier with a vacuum. around the fan and where theres lint trapped.

Clothes are drying slowly. Moisture is leaking


I also recently had the same kind of problem.

I took the front off the dryer, and the lint collector, past the screen, was FULL of lint, sand and dirt. Imagine balling up a large tshirt and stuffing it in there. That's how full!

I'd definately look at how to clean out the lint and exhaust lines as well as possible. That wet air has to be able to get out.

Dryer overheating but not drying clothes!


Check the complete venting system, the lint collector may be clean, but what about the vent outside?

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


Either the heater element is breaking or is loose and getting only 110V instead of 240V.  First I would check the wall outlet with a voltmeter for 240V between Line1 and Line2.  Also check the connections and continuity for the heater element.
