Un plug the dryer, disconnect the vent and reach in the hole and pull the lint out. Put a bag on the end or somthing to catch the lint. Turn on the dryer and blow the lint out. This is a pretty good indictor that you vents on the house are clogged. Maybe time to get them cleaned. thanks Dave www.washermd.com

Do you use dryer sheets? The chemical in dryer sheets seal up the little holes in the lint filters. To test, take the lint filter to the sink and see if it holds water. If it does, give it a good scrub and toss out the dryer sheets.

Lots of lint in bottom where the lint trap is at. cant get it out


You can connect a hose to your vacuum narrow and long enough to reach in the slot. I cut off part of an old garden hose to use with our vacuum. Clumps of lint will get stuck on the end of the hose and will not go through the hose so you will have to repeatedly pull it in and out to remove the lint. Good luck.

I have a Frigidaire stackable full-size washer/dryer. I don't have the model number, but it is about eight years old. The dryer does not get hot enough to dry even a small load well.


When was the last time you cleaned out your vent? It should be done every 1-2 years to prevent build-up of lint and possible blockage. Also make sure your outside dryer vent flap is not stuck closed or clogged. I use a plumbers snake to twist inside the vent and clean out the lint. It makes a huge difference in drying time. Also disconnect the vent from behind the dryer and check for lint build-up inside the back of the dryer itself. (Be sure to unplug the dryer before you do this!) When you push the dryer back, be careful not to squish or pinch the dryer vent if it is a flexible foil or plastic tube. These are the easy fix-it's. Try them first before resorting to more expensive trouble shooting. Douglas

Gas dryer turns off when load is nit dry


You may want to clean out the dryer's insides as well as your venting that leads outside. This may be the reason your dryer isn't fully drying. It basically isn't running efficiently enough due to age or lint build up or both. As far as the running after it's cooled down it may be a "wrinkle guard" where it tumbles the clothes until they have cooled down.

Runs for a while than shuts off if i take the back off it doesn't shut off.


Usualy this is caused by poor airflow through your dryer. Remove the lint filter and check for a lint build-up near the bottom of your lint filter. If you see a lint build up use a vacuum crevice tool and something long like a fly swatter to loosen the lint as you vacuum. Also check the dryer vent tubing and the outside vent flapper for obstructions. What is happening is your dryer is heating up until the high temp limit protection rhermostat shuts off the heating element.

What I just mentioned is apparently not your problem. You said that your dryer runs then shuts off completely. Check to see if the motor is easily roated by hand with the belt installed. If it is difficult to rotate there is a bearing problem somewhere causing heat to build up in your motor until the thermal overload shuts off the motor. There is a drive belt idler near the motor that can also cause excessive drag on the belt if the bearing has failed. The last thing to check would be the drum rollers located in the groved area on the outside of the rear of your dryer drum. If these have stopped turning they act like a drum brake and can also cause the same symptoms. Removing the back panel allows the chassis to shift enough for the drum to ride lighter on the drum roller even though it may not be turing it is enough for the dryer drum to skid / slide on top of the stuck drum roller yet not shut off.. Hope this helps and good luck. I can help with access issues need be here.

One question I have is does your dryer door open and close properly? Some times a bad door seal or door catch can cause the same symptoms. Open and close the door and losten for a switch click as the door opens or closes not far from the closed position.

How can I remove the front of my dryer so I can clean out the lint? I have a brush, but it can not unclog the large amount of lint once the lint catcher is removed. Model is 110 60922990


one of the most effective ways to get this lint is to use your vacuum cleaner hose and reduce the size down using heavy plastic tubing, of a small enough outside diameter. Many sizes of plastic tubing are available at hardware stores, home depots, etc. Be sure to get a thick walled tubing that will not collapse under the suction. good luck with it.

Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it


Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.
