I have a fridgedaire dryer, front loader. It gets wet inside on the door down through the lint filter, under the drum and out the exhaust. Think the problem is with the vent but can't figure out why. ...


2 questions are there more then 3 elbows in your vent run

and is any of it flexible pipe?

Humidity will infiltrate but should be infiltrating that much. One thing they make for dryer vents is a flap that opens one way to let air out, while dryer is running and closes when dryer is off. I don't think its humidity causing your issue. When you say the vent is straight does it run horizontal (even with the floor) or does elbow down and then run straight/horizontal?

Also about how long is the pipe run?

Tip

Dryer Dry Time Appears to Jump or Stall During Auto Dry Cycles


The operation of dryers during the Auto Dry Cycles is based on the moisture content of the clothes as they cycle over the moisture sensor. At the start of the cycle, the default estimated time is displayed depending on the cycle selected. The moisture sensor feeds information to the control based on the "wetness' of the clothes during the first 5 minutes of the cycle. The control then calculates and display a new estimated time making the time appear to "jump".

Recalculation happens again based on the reduction in the "wetness" of the clothes when the Estimated Time Remaining is between 15 to 5 minutes. The control will extend the cycle and display the Estimated Time Remaining unchanged if it "sees" no significant reduction in the wetness level of the clothes. The dryer will run longer than initially projected and give the appearance that the displayed time has "stalled".

Clean the sensor bars for any films or dirt build up to make sure it sends accurate information to the control. Level the dryer front to back and side to side to ensure the clothing will tumble properly and making good and proper contact with the moisture sensor bars. Check the dryer vent duct for any restriction to ensure a good air flow as the operation of the Auto Dry Cycles is based primarily on the air flow condition.

It is highly recommended to clean the lint filter before every load and make sure the dryer is grounded at the wall plug.

Must the water be on during the dry cycle


Absolutely! Cold water must be available during the Dry Cycle because it sprays a fine mist on the Condenser to keep it cool. This is how it removes moisture from the hot, damp air circulating through the Dryer.

My duet dryer control lock is blinking and beeping....tried pushing the end of cycle button, but still is blinking and beeping. Any other suggestions??? We have had lots of humidity this summer and...


It is not related to moisture directly by any chance. If END OF CYCLE does not work. it can be short circuit inside which can cause this. Moisture can cause short circuit or the whole control board may be faulty.

Cooling light stays on during dry cycle. no heat is to dry clothes. I've switched the circut breaker numerous times and unplugged the unit many times also to "reset" . What's next..


Try a timed dry cycle instead of an automatic cycle. If that works, then you will need to clean off the moisture detection bars inside the dryer to get the auto cycle to work again. Look for two curved metal bars, about 3/16 inch wide and 4 inches long, about an inch apart, located just inside the front of the dryer, near the right side of the lint filter. (you'll have to stick your head in the dryer drum to see them) Often times, use of dryer sheets will result in a waxy coating forming on these bars, preventing the dryer from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees no moisture, it goes into the cool down mode and then stops. Clean the bars off, and you should be back in the laundry business.

I have model # crgr7900A31 gas dryer front end loading. The dryer will not shut off. It continues to run.


Hi, If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Over heats , and has lots of moisture vapor coming out of the bottom.it dries and everything ,but its like it's leaking water


The most likely cause is your home vent is clogged and the dryer has little or no air flow. The water is exiting the dryer with the air since there is little air flow which causes the "water leak". Clean your home vent all the way through and your dryer will probably also need a good cleaning. This should take care of the problem. Please rate this post.

Clothes are drying slowly. Moisture is leaking


I also recently had the same kind of problem.

I took the front off the dryer, and the lint collector, past the screen, was FULL of lint, sand and dirt. Imagine balling up a large tshirt and stuffing it in there. That's how full!

I'd definately look at how to clean out the lint and exhaust lines as well as possible. That wet air has to be able to get out.

"cooling" display won't turn off causing heating problems.


Try cleaning off the two curved metal bars (about 4 inches long) on the inside near the lint filter. They are what senses the moisture on automatic dry. When you use fabric softener sheets, the stuff from the fabric softener sheets can coat the bars, which makes the dryer think the clothes are already dry, and puts the dryer into cool down. (using time dry will also take the moisture sensor out of the cycle, if you'd like) This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.
