When you say lint not clogged I assume you mean the removable lint trap in the dryer. If the drum gets hot (open the door a few minutes into the cycle) then most likely you have a vent problem. You will need to check if the vent is blocked solid either by lint or if the vent pipe is crushed. I would suggest going out to whereever the vent ends on the outside of the building and see if air is getting blown out with the dryer on. If no air is coming out then chances are it is blocked. If the drum is cold then gas flame is not getting hot.

It just doesn't seem like my frigidaire gas affinity dryer is drying as fast as it should


Hey Car Guy,.. there are two factors that determine how fast the clothes will dry:
1- air temperature, Is the gas burner is lighting and heating the air? Just stop the dryer mid-cycle and feel the clothes - if they are hot, then the burner/heating part of the dryer is working ok.

2 - adequate air going through the dryer. This is usually where the problem lies. There is a lint filter at the dryer somewhere, accessed either where the door opens, or on the top of the dryer....there may be an additional lint filter somewhere on the exhaust duct. Check for that, and check your air flow where it exhausts outslde. See that the flappers of the backdraft damper aren't stuck closed etc.

If you have good heat and good air flow, then it's doing all it can.

Hello,
A very typical problem with GAS dryers is the soloniod coils that open the gas valve . When the coils are cool they operate just fine,but once the dryer gets warm from running the coils dont open the gas valve wwhen they are warm. If that is what your experiencing,the dryer heats when its cool but doesn't heat when it's been running for a while,the coils on the gas valve will need to be replaced.

I would look closely at the lint filter housing. It is accessed by removing the rear panel. They get plugged up quite often, so I suspect this may be your issue.

My dryer does takes ages to dry clothes and then not completely. In addition any string item like bikinis will be torn .


check to see if exhaust vent is cloged with lint, both behind dryer and outside. this should give you more air flow.

Mdg2600bww is not ignighting, cleared ventline, turns on, just no heat


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html his will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions.
