Check you dryer vent. Make sure it is venting to the outside and is not restricted.

Bosch condensation dryer when on heated dry clothes come out steaming hot not dry


Sounds like something's blocking the hot damp air being removed from the drier. If you are confident enough, go through the drier vent system looking for a blockage. If not get a good DIY neighbour or appliance engineer. Silly question, is the drum turning?

Frigidaire fex831cso


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the dryer is not heating up on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FEX831CS0. First, there are two house fuses that the dryer is plugged into. Make sure that both are good and the breaker has not been tripped. If one of the fuses is blown, this can cause your dryer to not heat. Secondly, make sure that the lint filter, lint trap area, ducting leading outside, and the outside exhaust duct are free of lint. This can cause your dryer to not dry, due to lack of ventilation. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Cannot locate lint trap to fit my wsm2420 sazww washer dryer combo ge parts no will not fit


In the Kenmore equivalent, the lint trap is on the back wall of the interior of the dryer. If GE is the same then you'll see two vents at the back inside, one is the intake (where hot air enters), the other is the outtake, which contains a lint trap. You might have mistaken both for nonremovable vents. But one of them is removable. It should have finger holes or something to grab. Just pull it and it will pop out without difficulty. It's probably a two-piece unit (a grate on the dryer side and a screen on the exhaust side, with a space in between for collecting lint), which snaps or slips apart easily, then you can clear the lint, and then snap or slip it back together and just push it back in place in the dryer.

Gas dryer not heating all the time


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Duet front loader dryer


Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away

No heat in dryer cycle


Sometimes lint and other debris get by the lint trap and causes an obstruction where the duct narrows by the (squirrel cage) or blower. Also kill the power and check your wire connection on the back of the drier. Sometimes a wire loosens up.
