It sounds like you may need a new timer. Has water or anything gotten into the timer. This could be causing a short or faulty reading in it.

SOURCE: heat shuts off way before clothed are dry

Check the following to address this issue. replace the sensor if all below checks out to be OK.


Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.


Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.(Flame sensor).

Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

Electrolux gas dryer snagging clothes


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux gas dryer, model# EIGD55HIW, is snagging and tearing your clothes. There is a possibility that the temperature is too high and you are overdrying your clothes. Make sure to dry your clothes on the correct temperatures and correct times. The other possibility is, the finish inside of your dryer has been scratched or chipped. This can cause a snagging or tearing of clothes. To prevent further scratching and chipping of the drum finish, make sure to always remove any foreign objects from pockets before laundering, as well as make sure zippers and fasteners are not hitting the inside of the drum. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dryer, model# EIGD55HIW0, is snagging your clothes. This can be caused by scratching or chipping of the drum of your appliance. There is nothing to stop this from happening other than changing out the drum. For future reference, you can help avoid this by removing foreign objects such as coins, pins, clips, or buttons, from all pockets. You will also want to be careful with belt buckles, zippers, and fasteners that may be hitting the inside of the drum. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Clothes snagging


My advice would be to replace the drum...but if you're going to do that, you're better off just buying a new machine. A new drum will cost about half the cost of a new machine.

Keep getting snags on sheer fabric clothes, what is it? Anyone with this problem?


If you are certain that the dryer is causing snags in delicates, check the drum for a foreign object (paper clips, safety pins, etc.,) that might be lodged in the drum. A loose screw or loose drum agitator (paddle) might cause this problem.

Sometimes a bad bearing or drum slide will cause a misalignment between the drum and the stationary part of the dryer's interior. This misalignment will pinch clothes and cause tears or black streaks.

Clothes get caught between the drum and the front of the inside nonmovable part of the dryer and we are getting snags of the clothing inside and ruining the clothes


there is suppose to be a felt type piece that goes on the drum to full that gap it may have fell off . its a struggle to put on unless the drum is accessible. you can pop the top of the machine off to get better access.

DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES


try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.
