Check the motor are for any blockage and also check the internal duct work and blower to be sure they are clear also.

    There is no blockage i clean it once a month and the exhaust tubing that goes outside the house is less than two feet.

    Then you have a bad motor. If it can't handle the heavy loads without cutting out it will need to be replaced. Here is the motor to order. http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/clic...

    You think thats the problem? The reason i ask is because on anything under 25min the dryer doesn't shutoff but when it goes on anything over 50min it shuts off after 5min, i dont think its the motor. Thank you

Hi, Based on the explaination in your post I guess the unit will operate without anything in the dryer, correct ? If that is the case if you remove the lower panel you will reveal a plastic cover over the blower housing. Located on the housing you will find the moisture sensor usually hidden under some black puddy. Remove the gum type puddy and there you will find the sensor held in place. Remove the sensor and clean it out best as you can. Re-install the moisture sensor and give it a test. If that fails to remedy the problem you may indeed require a new sensor. Let me know and I can provide you with a part number or you can visit "repairclinic.com" and enter your model number and a description of the part you need. Hope this was helpful to you. Let me know or rate my info accordingly. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. macmarkus :)

I had a bunch of verywet towels because my sink was leaking, and I put them in the dryer and it worked for a few minutes them stopped. What might be wrong?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you had a bunch of wet towels, and put them in your Frigidaire dryer, model# FGQ332ES. I see that your dryer worked for a few minutes and then stopped. There could be a possibility that the wet towels were too heavy from all the water in them. I suggest that you spin the towels out in your washer first and then move them over to your dryer. If you are still noticing the dryer working for a couple of minutes and then stopping, I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored start it on any cycle. If your dryer is still shutting off after a few minutes, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to shut off after a few minutes. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

3 BATH TOWELS AND ONE HAND TOWEL WERE NOT DRY AFTER 60 MINUTES IN DRYER . THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM SINCE WE BOUGHT DRYER IN MAY. A LOAD OF UNDERWEAR, T SHIRTS AND SWEAT SOCKS ALSO WILL NOT DRY IN AN HOUR...


HI,
If the unit is less than a year, you problem is a restricted vent system and not in the unit either. A simple test would be disconnect the vent from the back of the unit, run the dryer. If your clothes dry faster, your problem is in the vent system. If no improvement, problem is in the dryer. Get back to me and let me know how this goes.
Thanks

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

Dryer gas heat not staing lit


It is probably electronic gas valve, or safety valve that let the gas flow and shuts off immediately. Better take it to the repair shop will save yourself $75.00 service fee.

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes


The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.
