Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer

Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.

Hello,

I have a Frigidaire dryer, model number AEQ6000CES2, and my problem is that a lot of lint, and I mean a lot, seems to be getting past the screen and into the exhaust.

When I emptied a load today, there was barely any lint at all in the trap. However, if I remove the trap and remove two screws to take of other half of the lint trap area, there is a huge amount of lint that has made it behind the lint screen.

I emptied a softball sized amount of lint from behind the lint trap today when I took it apart. Also, the vent grill on the outside of my building has strands of lint coming out of it, telling me that lint is definately finding it's way into the exhaust.

Is there a known issue with this dryer for this problem? Is there a quick fix?

Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick

How do you change lint filter


Hello ccparish8 - Base on the model listed above on the post, washer GLWS1339EC does not have a lint filter or any of Frigidaire washing machines. However, if you are referring to replacing the lint filter on a dryer, simply remove the lint filter from the housing and reinstall in the same manner.

Hello! My Frigidaire gas dryer - Gallery Heavy Duty slowly lost it's heat. In the past two weeks loads were gradually getting colder and wet until heating stop complatelly.


This is most likely a bad ignitor(can be verified by inspecting burner and ignitor with the machine running. But I would also check the vent pipes from the dryer all the way to the outside to make sure there isn't any blockages or restrictions. I would need a model number to provide more specific details.

I could not find the model number you listed. I also would be very concerned about over heating until we can find and locate the problem. Look inside the door and compare number with the on listed here at Fixya. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridgidaire FGRB5700DS0 Only Certain Modes Produce Heat


The control thermostat has failed. It's mounted to the plastic air duct that your lint trap slides into. You'll have to unplug the unit and remove the front panel to get to it. The part number is #131298400 and is available at a local appliance parts retailer. Cost is about $32.00.
