I would say either the flap inside the venting that is supposed to shut to allow heat build up is stuck open, or the vent is clogged. It is a common problem. The worst case senario is a faulty heating element which is located behind the control panel

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

Dryer not heating very hot. need to run two cycles to dry


Hi,

Dryer is not drying properly, In order to resolve try following things.
  • Check the exhaust hood outside the house, does it open and close freely, Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.
  • Do not overload, 1 wash load = 1 dryer load. Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
  • Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require repositioning to ensure even drying.
  • Check the washer to be sure it is draining properly to extract water from the load.
  • Clothes load is too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
I hope this will solve your problem.

Good luck and have a nice day.

Dried a load fine, next load tumbles wont dry. still cant get heat


Hi,

Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.


Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hi, your site looks awesome ! I just got a dryer


Check to see if the belt has slipped off the motor pulley, or off of the idle arm pulley.
Also could be a broken belt.
Try turning the drum by hand by reaching inside the drum with the dryer off, once you give a 1/4-1/2 turn, then turn on the dryer sometimes the motor will restart as they get a dead zone in them sometimes

Whirlpool dryer froze and wont tumble just makes noise where try


Hi, This dryser only has 1 belt. When you chacked the belt, was the belt located in the middle of the drum?
This model has an idler pulley that is no longer being used. They have went back to the roller style idler which is easier on the belt.
Raise the top and then remove the 2 screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the front cabinet and locate the idler next to the motor pulley. Look at the belt while you have the front off and see if there is any bad spots in it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot


Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!
