To start remove and clean lint filter and check that the air ducts are not obstructed.

If the Dryer gets very hot, this is often because the heating element has a contact to ground, and this cause the heating element not shutting down when required.

Check heating element connection, fix the problem or replace the wiring harness to the heating element.

Why is my Frigidaire dryer model #FER86600ES0 getting extremely hot on the top and back?


Good afternoon friend, thanks for the post!

I see from your post that your Frigidaire dryer is getting extremely hot on the top and back. Have you checked to make sure that it is getting proper ventilation? I would verify nothing is blocking your dryer from ventilating which could be causing the appliance to heat up. If it continues to heat up I would reach out to a technician to come diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

GE dryer very hot on top--hasn't been used


Often times the element has broken (burned out) and is now touching the element housing causing it to heat up and stay on even though the dryer is not even running.

Dryer got very hot when shut off,wouldn't heat up when running.


We took apart the dryer. the heating coil was broken in two. When the dryer was stopped it was not in off mode therefore the electricity was going through and the ends off the coil where it was broken was touching the metal and eating the dryer which made it hot to touch. We tested the 3 different fuses? the ohms were good. Ordered the part waiting to put it back together to be sure. Rule to remember even when dryer is stopped it should always be put in off mode.

Dryer gets hot and shuts off after five minutes,


Check your vent tube to make sure it is clear. It is probably getting to hot because there is no ventilation to the outside. When you have the front off, check all the way from the lint filter to the outsid of the house.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Very hot to touch on top


Sounds like you have a clogged vent hose or clogged duct work leading to the outside of the home. Make sure you have no obstructions in the exhaust system including a functioning flap on the outside wall cap.

Losing coldness in freezer and fridge. side panels near freezer door are extremely hot to the touch. bottom back of the fridge is extremely hot.


Condenser is in need of being cleaned badly or your fan motor to cool the condenser is not operating. Compressor is overheating. Removed the panel in back of the refrigerator and clean the condenser so air can freely pass over it for heat removal. Allow compressor to cool off before restarting it.

Kenmore Seris 90 Front load dryer


I agree with you that the possible culprit is the thermal cut off sensor. The extreme heating could be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat or heating element.
