Question about Frigidaire GLET1142CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
Our laundry center is electric, with 110, not 220 - so I know it takes longer to dry than a 220 unit. Still, it takes forever. We have pulled it out and cleaned the vent line and hubby reached in as far as he could to clean up to the blower assembly. We removed the lint filter and cleaned a bunch of lint, coins, etc down as far as we could reach with tongs. There must be some way to clean the lint (and sand) from the interior of the machine, but hubby is hesitant to just start removing screws, as he doesn't want to drop the drum. So - can you help him figure out how to clean interior lint? He can't find a model number anywhere - there's a metallic looking plate on the front left exterior corner, but no discernible writing. Washer is top loading. This is in a vacation rental in Hawaii, so tenants don't really care if they are abusing the machine or not. There's a fair amount of sand that we got out, but I'm sure there's more. I am having the same problem with mine and I have cleaned the lint & vents as far up as I can. I had 1 set of queen size sheets in the dryer and it took over 2 hrs to dry them. Any suggestions?
Possibly needs a new thermostat.

One way to tell if it has a heater element problem is to use an Amprobe to read how much current the dryer pulls when operating. If the amps are 2/3, 1/2, or 1/3 of what it's supposed to pull, then it's an element problem, and you need to fix that.
My only question is, how long would it take to dry that same load of sheets when the unit was new, and does the time now compare to the then?
