Frigidaire model # fdg648gfso does not heat all the time

Sometimes we have to run the dryer three times to get a load dry. I dont know where to begin. I always feel heat from the dryer and the lint trap is always changed. And it vents well to the outside.

    By "it vents well to the outside" I mean there are no obstructions in the exhaust hose to the outside of the house and the dryer is virtually clean and free of lint.

    What exactly do you mean by "it vents well to the outside"?

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.

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

SOURCE: Frigidaire electric dryer; model # FDEB34RGS1- gets TOO hot!

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

SOURCE: Frigidaire model # FG01442ESO, is not drying.

I would replace the gas valves on the dryer. They are located just before the igniter on the dryer. Make sure you unplug the unit and turn off the gas before doing this repair. Good luck

I want to know how hot my dryer gets. I do not have temp. controls on my model


Good Morning Tabitha,

I see that you are looking to see how hot your Frigidaire dryer, model# FER311FS, actually gets, due to you not having temperature controls on your particular model. Being that you have just the timed dry cycle, it provides up to 100 minutes of drying time at high heat for regular and permanent press items. When drying permanent press items, turn the cycle selector to 40-50 minutes. This is the average time needed to dry most loads of permanent press items. The load tumbles without heat during the last 10 minutes of the Timed Dry cycle. Use this setting to refresh clothing, pillows or blankets or to dust draperies. Heat-sensitive items such as plastics, foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials or items containing feathers or down should be dried only with this setting. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi Robert Burch - From what you have described the unit could possibly have a communication problem with the control panel. However, if the unit is not producing any heat please have a professional diagnose the heating element and the blower assembly as well. Either, or, could be faulty at this time. This is not a typical DIY job so please consult a professional.

My dryer model # ler331dso is getting hot on the top of the dryer but you have to run the dryer like three times to get the clothes dry? What is the problem? The lint filter and hoses are not clogged up....


The dryer might not be the problem at all. The electrical breaker might be on the way out:

The 120 motor's side is fine but the heat load side has taken a beating from the 5 thou watt 240 volt element.

Taking 4 hours to dry clothes


It should never take beyond the normal prescribed time on the dryer timer to dry a load of clothes. Unless, you are overloading the dryer or not sorting your clothes correctly.

If your dryer is heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some items to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER (if it is different from the one you listed this question under), so I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat beginning to fail.

Dryer heating is sporadic, sometimes can dry in 45 minutes, other times 4 hours for same type loads?


Not sure what make or model you have but it sounds like you have a bad element. It's hanging loose and the ends are touching from time to time causing what you have described.

No heat - long time to dry clothes.


Hi, Is this an electric dryer? The model# shows that is it. If it is gas, you need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is a very common problem with the newer gas dryers. We have them for $27.95. Our # is 1 866 798-4375 Make sure and check the venting to the ouside and make sre that it is clean and has no kinks.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Dryer #69501 taking long time to dry.


All you need for proper dry times are good airflow and correct heat. As long as you're satisfied with the airflow, pull the venting off the back of the dryer and with a glass bulb thermometer, measure the exhaust temps at the back of the dryer, for most models, the high heat setting should reach roughly 160F +/- 10% before cycling the heat off....check this at the beginning of the cycle, and again after it has been running for 20-30 minutes. If that checks ok, just remember the industry standard for a normal size load of clothing is 60 minutes. If not, please let me know with a re-post, and please include a full model number (should begin either 417 or 110).
