Question about Frigidaire Dryers

1 Answer

My clothes are still very damp after one run in the dryer. I remove the lint every time and check to see if everything is plugged in and not restricted. The dryer gets hot and turns but leaves the clothes damp.It is only about 5 years old. I don't stuff it full or anything and the clothes move freely.

    I tried using the other dryer settings-nothing. I checked the dryer hose again and it is fine and unclogged. The dryer gets hot and blows hot air but the clothes stay moist and after a few runs start to smell musty in there. HELP!!!

Could be the timer switch is not giving you the right drying cycle.
Try to change dryer cycles from the one setting that you would normally use to a different cycle and see what happens.
Or if you have a timed type timer switch, put it to 60 minutes and see if that helps. If it does then you may need to replace the timer switch.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

How do you wire the dryer MDE300AYW


Instructions
    • 1 Remove the lint screen from the dryer. If you are unsure how to remove the lint trap, refer to your owner's manual, as removal directions vary among Maytag models.
    • 2 Use your fingers to remove large chunks of lint from the lint screen. You should remove the lint from the lint trap after every load.
    • 3 Run the lint screen under the faucet. Use hot water and thoroughly wet down both sides.
    • 4 Scrub both sides of the lint screen with a wet nylon scrub brush. Rinse the screen again under hot water to remove loosened buildup. Allow the lint screen to air-dry on a towel before putting it back inside of the dryer.
    • 5 Make a paste of powdered laundry soap and warm water into a small bowl. Use three parts powdered detergent to one part water. Stir with a spoon until a paste forms.
    • 6 Dip a soft rag into the paste. Wipe down the entire interior of the dirty Maytag dryer with the rag and paste. Apply more paste to the cloth as needed.
    • 7 Rinse the interior of the dryer with a damp rag to remove the paste.
    • 8 Dry a load of damp towels in the Maytag dryer. Run a complete dry cycle to remove any residue left inside.
    • 9 Wipe down the exterior of the dryer with a rag moistened with all-purpose household cleaner. You can also use the household cleaner to remove certain stains from the interior of the dryer. Make sure the cleaner you are using is noninflammable.

My dryer runs and heats up but doesn't dry the clothes. i noticed some dampness on dryer door when i open it. the clothes circulate but don't fully dry. i noticed the dryer is heated and light is...


Hi mandolins23...
Sounds like your venting system is plugging up, try these suggestions below...

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
Please take time to rate me.

Our LG dryer doesn't dry clothes very well. We usually have to run the dryer 2 or 3 times to dry our clothes. I've checked the lint filter, hose and vent. Everything is clear.


if you have checked vent all the way out to termination point and sure that it is clear and not obstructed with damp lint then i would say you possible have a bad thermostat on the heater... this regulates how often and how long the dryer heating element runs and stays off.it has a open temperature and a shut down temperature... i would suggest replacement of that first... it is located on the heating element of unit... it is a round disk shape like bi-metal with 2 wires attached to it...
good luck to you....

Dryer seems to run OK and it heats up but the clothes are damp. Even after running them thru two or three times. Exhaust is clean and clear but there is not much lint build up either.


I know you say the exhaust is clear but please check again.start unit and go outside to vent and check for good warm airflow..80% of clothes drying concerns are related to restricted air flow not helping to get rid of the moisture in the clothes

When clothes are dryed on the perm press cycle either reg dry or very dry, they are still damp. I have to run it through 2 or more times to get them dry. I'm told by Bosch that is what perm press is...then...


You may not be getting sufficient air flow--remove the lint filter and wash it with detergent and hot water. Also clean excessive lint out of the air vents (under the filter too). Don't use 'perm press' if you want things absolutely dry. Remove and hang up before they cool. 'Damp dry' really means 'don't dry' I guess!

Dryer on sensor dry - gets stuck on 6 minutes and does not finish


We have been having this same problem. I had tried adjusting everything that I could think of when putting a load of laundry in and got the exact same results as you. I would select the sensor dry and it would count down just like normal until it got to 6 minutes and then it would just run forever at 6 minutes.
My husband and I searched online all this afternoon and came across what seemed way to simple to work. We removed the lint filter, unscrewed the filter housing right inside the door of the dryer, and got to the sensors. We took a damp cloth and wiped them off very well to remove any and all buildup. We wiped everything down very well to remove any built up lint and/or dirt and put everything back in place as was before. We then unplugged the dryer for about a minute and then plugged back in. We put a load of already dry clothes into the dryer and started as usual with the sensor dry. It started out at the usual 41 minutes then skipped down almost immediately to 6 minutes and then a few minutes later I heard the most beautiful sound I have heard in a long time. The Beeper signalling that the timer had counted down to the end and was finished. It had worked. Thankfully. Hope this helps you also.

Needs 2 drying cycles


I am assuming you are cleaning the lint filter. Check the vent pipe out the back. If it vents into the wall, the piping leading to outside may be plugged. Your washer is spinning the clothes good, right? If the clothes are excessively wet they will take longer to dry also. If its practical, remove the vent hose and let it dry blowing into the room. It may suck but just once for a test.
