You can't take the back off to get to the heating element. the front comes off. Look at the bottom edge on the front there might be a couple of screws if so take them out and remove the front of the dryer the door and all should come off be careful the door switch has a couple of wires remove them b4 taking away the front then you undo the belt and in the middle of the drum there should be 3 screws take them out and pull out the drum. now you should see the heating elements. if you'd like call me and i'll try to walk you through it 417-926-0106 Jim

Frigidaire gas dryer model flxg52rbs3 is making strange noise and leaving burn marks on clothes. I want to take front cover off to clean out lint but I need to know how to take cover off.

The burner safety system is not working. The thermostat may need to be replaced. If it were too much lint, the dryer would not dry the clothes completely. Take the vent hose off the dryer and vacuum it out and if it connects to a wall that vents to the roof, then vacuum inside the wall too. Lint fires are more prevalent than those that vent thru the wall to the outside.

The tumble dryer bip and flash "empty water" even if no water. I have cleaned every filter (2 inside the big filter at the bottom of the tumble dryer) but still have the trouble


I want to first make sure that your dryer is serviced up. so i want you to do these steps.
Most of the problems will be resolved doing these......

As clothes are tumble dried, they drop fibres. Most of this fluff is trapped by the lint filter and this needs to be checked and cleaned regularly. Lint also builds up in the vent pipe and around the electric motor in the rear of the dryer.

1.clean lint filter
Wait until the dryer cools, open the door and lift out the lint filter.
Gently brush off lint using your fingers.
On many models, the filter may also be washed. Check your manual for instructions.
If the filter is damaged in any way, you should replace it.

2.Vacuum area where lint filter sits:

The area where the lint filter sits should be vacuumed .
Remove the lint filter, and use a narrow vacuum nozzle to remove dust and lint from the fitting.

3.Clean inside the tumble dryer:

1. Make sure the dryer is cool, switch it off and unplug it.
2. Unscrew the retaining screws on the back panel, and lift it off. Vacuum the blower area.
3. Also vacuum around the vent pipe connection.
4. Replace the back panel and refit all the screws.

4.Check tumble dryer vent hose:
8d2299a.jpgWait for the dryer to cool. Unplug the vent hose and inspect its entire length for snags in the pipe.
Make sure the vent is not obstructed on the outside wall, and fit a flap or screen to keep out small animals.
If your vent pipe is punctured or damaged, you should replace it.

To avoid dryer problems,
Make sure the dryer is level and does not rock, and consult the manufacturer's instructions for the maximum weight of clothing to dry at one time. Also, make sure clothes have been spun-dry before putting them into the dryer.

This is just initial help,
Post your comments about how things turned up, Ill be giving suggestions based on your reply........

Thanx for using fixya,

I have a Duet Dryer model GEW9200LW2. It takes a couple cycles to dry clothes and my electric bill has gone through the roof. Is there something I can fix or replace?

Hi spirko...
Sounds like its time to clean your machine of lint,strings,paper,etc from the vent system of the dryer.
You will need to remove the back of the dryer, and you will need to find the air blower tubing system, you will take that apart and remove any dust,dirt,lint,pens,paper,etc that you find around the blower wheel, check the wheel to make sure it is not broken or loose on the shaft, make sure your cleaned everything all the way out of the dryer...Now you can put it back together after cleaning.
Then you will want to clean your vent hose all the way out to where it vents to the outside of the house, this can be accomplished with a vacuum, and something stiff to tie the vacuum hose to to feed it into the vent pipe for cleaning.
They do make a special cleaning tool for vent tubing, check with homedepot,lowes,etc
After you get everything clean and plugged back in your machine should operate normal and your electric bill should return back to normal again.
Please take time to rate me

Wife complains that clothes are not drying like they used to she has to run second time. dryer feels warm, blows out vent, vent is all clean and clear

Depending on the age... your heating element maybe on its way out, they are not terribly expensive or difficult to replace and can be done by a DIY person. Hint: make sure it is electrically completely disconnected and that all of the lint is removed around the impeller (which is in the same area you will be working), you will be surprised how much lint can collect, too much can make a fire hazard.

Clothes take long to dry on Kitchen Aid Model - KEYE660WWHO

First thing to do is vacuum out all lint from dryer, unplug, remove back and vacuum all lint out of it, also where vent hooks up. Then clean out duct work from inside of home to where it exits. Excess lint holds moister and causes dryer not to dry.

Asko t701 dryer makes exsessive noise and drum rotates slowly

Mine was very noisy. Then I found the impeller clogged with lint. I cleaned it and now the noise is gone.

Remove the lower panel (2 Torx T20 screws).
Remove the impeller cover (1 Torx T10 screw and 4 snaps).
Clean impeller.
Reinstall covers. Don't overtighten screws.

My Asko dryer does not dry clothes. It shuts off

It is quite common for lint to cover the blower on these units, making it impossible for the dryer to move any air.

1)remove the lower panel. you will need a T20 driver for this and may need to tip the dryer slightly to the rear

2)remove the left part of the blower plenum. this is held by 3 plastic tabs and a T15 screw

You will now see the blower wheel, it is a squirrel cage type. Check for lint buildup, broken vanes, or string/thread wrapped around the shaft.

if there is no problem with the blower then there is another reason you are not moving air. let me know if this helps
