Question about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Installed approx. 03/06 - checked and circuit breaker not thrown. Are there fuses anywhere inside this unit that should be checked/replaced? Troubleshooting guide mentions 2 fuses.
Apr 22, 2010 My dryer would not dry the clothes either. the heating element would only come on once then nothing. The high limit thermostat was bad. Pull the electrical plug. Remove the top cover and the thermostat has an orange/black wire to it. It is hard to get to the screws but I was able. Then I found the element would cycle many times but not stay on long enough to dry the clothes thoroughly - I found the culprit - the motor driven fan creats a suctionin the drum and the hot air from the rear coil is pulled thru the drum, thru the front door (via the holes in the door's inner face) down thru the lint screen, thru the outer fan housing and out the exhaust. My problem was that the door's cardboard backing had seperated and along with the trapped lint clogged the door's holes and restricted the air flow. I took the door off, seperated the 2 halves, removed the cardboard and cleaned the lint out. The dryer is now working like new. Summary: The high limit thermostat was bad probably from cycling so much and the air flow diminished slowly over time to the point I did not notice until the clothes just wouldn't dry.
Check the air flow first.
Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
