    You didn't get the heat tunnel connected correctly. Take it apart and make sure everything is tucked in where it goes. The bottom of the tunnel and the exhaust port will be the areas of interest.

You should check the drum seal, front and rear. Also important is the dryer venting. If the vent is restricted by a kinked vent hose or run an excessive distance as is the case in most apartment homes and conduminums

Why is my Frigidaire dryer model #FER86600ES0 getting extremely hot on the top and back?


Good afternoon friend, thanks for the post!

I see from your post that your Frigidaire dryer is getting extremely hot on the top and back. Have you checked to make sure that it is getting proper ventilation? I would verify nothing is blocking your dryer from ventilating which could be causing the appliance to heat up. If it continues to heat up I would reach out to a technician to come diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Grinding noise-- on and off.


This is probably the front AND/OR rear bearings. The front bearing
is felt with slides and fits around the front of the tub.
The dryer has to be disassembled to get at either one.
See if the top panel has hinges in the back if so then all you have to do is raise the top panel to look at the front bearing.
If this was helpful please rate me.

Dryer squeak and back panel is hot? Frigidaire Dryer FDE436RES1


It sounds like you have a rear bearing bad.
as far as over heating check the vent line. Your thermostats are ok or your high limit would blow and you would have no heat.

Tub bearings


The bearing block does wear out on these. Replacing it is not an easy undertaking. You have to remove the top and the front of the dryer. Check the drum seals at this time as you have it all apart it is a good time to replace those also.

We just bought this dryer and after drying a load I touched the top of the dryer and it was incredibly hot? is this normal?


Check your vent it may be stopped up this will cause the top to get overly hot and the bearing to squeak

Broken tumbler belt


Slide a putty knife or other thin object between the top and front panels a couple inches in from either side. Press in and release the two spring clips holding the top panel and at the same time lift it up and lean it back. Remove the screws inside the front corners holding the front panel on. Place the new belt around the drum in about the same position as the old one was. Remove the lower rear panel to access pulleys. place belt around the motor pulley. Stretch the idler arm over and place belt around pulley. Reassemble.
