Electrolux washer/ dryer dryer not heating

Hi! We have an Elextrolux stackable w/d model # GLEP1031CS0 and the dryer is not drying....The unit was used for about a year and worked GREAT, and was put into storage for about a year, and we just took it out of storage and the dryer works (runs) but does not get hot and dry the clothes. Is there a reset button on this model? Would that be the problem? What is your recommendation?

Re: Electrolux washer/ dryer dryer not heating

Actually on most models there are thermal fuses (nonresetable) that do shut only the heater down but on yours it shuts the entire machine down so it sounds like either you dont have 230v to the unit (what i mean is it is common for one line to have burned out either on the terminal block where the cord is attached or in the home wiring the washer and dryer motor will work because all that only needs one line to work) or the heater )the element) is bad. Tear down is not very easy since its a stackable.

Just bough a used frigidaire stackable unit model FEX831CS and washer makes extremely loud noise on spin cycle. and dryer takes over 2 hours to dry a regular load of clothes. Please help

Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.

Typically stacked washers and dry are attached with a bracket in the back of the machine. Pull your machine out and you should see the brackets. Undo the screws and the dryer should lift off the washer.

Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat

Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
Best wishes,

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes

sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue
