Is the air venting all the way to the outside? If you ducting is clogged, dry times will be much longer. You may also be seeing steam come out the door if you open it halfway thru the cycle if vent is clogged. A crimped hose between the dryer and the wall can cause a similar problem. A clogged vent can also be a fire hazard.

I was washing the Frigidaire microwave today, and now the buttons do not work. I see the time, and the light turns on; I unplugged the microwave and plugged it back again, and the buttons still do not...

Some moisture has probably made its way into the touch pad. You might try heating it a little with a blow dryer on low heat to try and dry up the moisture inside the touch pad or just unplug it for a day or so and see if it will dry up on its own. If it does not start working the touch pad would need to be replaced. Hope that helps.

Not drying clothes. Have checked all filters and water tank. Still not drying :-(


If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Brand new Maytag Centennial electric dryer does not dry clothes!

It may have shipping damage, such as a loose or broken connection or heating element.

But if it's brand new, it's under warranty, and they will fix it free.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer is very slow at drying clothes even at the highest temp and seems to be getting worse.

Best guess is your dryer vent might be blocked. Check to ensure the vent hose is clear of lint all the way to its outlet.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 (jvm1850sh06) problem

Use a hair blow dryer to dry out the underside of the microwave. After you are convinced that it is dry you may operate it again.

That said, if it still is acting up read this:

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Dryer runs has little heat takes longer timer to dry

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.
