SOURCE: Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.

First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

you might need a new roller on the back of the drum, As for being louder when warm it's the part getting hot from Friction that is wearing the roller or roller pin down.

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

THe back wall of the inside of the drum houses the heating coil. There are insulators that are attached to it. Please check these and also see if there is wear on the seal at the top of that between the drum and the back piece. Also make sure the airflow is good.

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.

Frigidaire dryer problem


The vent duct length's sound fine.

Have you confirmed that the heater element is working? You don't mention whether the unit get's hot.

If it get's hot, then suspect the thermostat, or the overtemp stat.

Also, be suspect that users are overloading the dryer.

Also make sure that you feel a strong blast of hot air discharging at the vent end, with the washer/dryer in place.

Check that the vent grills inside of the dryer are clear.

Reply back and I can help you further.
