Question about Frigidaire Affinity FAQG7077KN 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - Classic Blue
Call Frigidaire, Customer Service, be nice, calm and explain that you need to talk to an experienced dryer repair person.
If you get no help there, call a local small business repair shop, or better yet, go over to their shop and see if they will let you pick their brain. Be sure to take with you the MAKE AND MODEL NUMBER of the dryer.
If the unit is not in warranty any longer, let them know you know it is a documented issue and if it is a quick fix, you would like to handle it, but if it is a timely fix, set an appointment with them and have them come out.
My first suggestion would be for you to take your dryer apart so you can see into the cabinet. Check the LINT DUCT TUBING, disconnect and clean out the duct totally from the inside of the dryer all the way to the outside of the house. A clogged up LINT DUCT VENT can cause the exact problem your talking about because maybe the DAMP LINT has not be blown all the way out of the tubing.

SOURCE: Brown streaks on clothes
mich, The brown streaks are probably caused by worn drum guides and lower basket seal. I've seen this quite often on Frigidaire dryers. Part numbers 5303937139 upper felt guide and 5303283286 lower basket seal. This can be a task for an inexperienced person but can be done. It requires removing the top panel and front panel/door assy. The old guides have to be scraped off. The upper felt guides and lower seal glue on. Catriver...post back.

it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.

Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

Tips for a great answer:
If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.
For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.
You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.
