Freezer vents full of frost.around every two months. Top refrigerator warm up. I resolve by removing all frost and ice from the freezer vents to clear cold path and get it to work. Possible problems...


First try melting the ice with hair dryer. See drain tube going to pan under frig? It can get clogged/frozen with ice. I cleaned mine with very warm water shot out of a water pik. Or u can hair dryer it, then pour warm water on the little pan that holds the drain tube. Be sure that tube is clear for draining.Otherwise, more ice at vents.

My dryer starts and runs but puts out little heat. To dry a load of towels I must run 3 or 4 cycles


Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

Whirpool dryer 10 years old is still heating but taking very long to dry clothes. Checked dryer vent and it is clear. Will heating element help?


If your heating element is still heating up the cause lies elsewhere. Filter for dryer both at the base of dryer and filter location . If you are getting heat then airflow is the problem. how is the fan motor in front of heating element

It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.:-
Vent:------ Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.--- Heating element:----- Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.------ Cycling thermostat:------- Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.--------

Dryer runs and heats up.but shuts off after 3 minutes or so model #rex4635ew1


This problem is frequently caused by poor airflow. Make sure your lint screen and vent pipe are clear. Take the vent pipe off of the dryer and check that there's a good airflow from the machine itself. If there's little air there, it's possible the fan has come loose on its shaft. If the dryer sounds unusually noisy (loud, rumbling noises when it's running, for instance) this is a likely cause. Replacing the fan is something you can do yourself if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some patience.

Without enough airflow, heat builds up and the safety thermostat shuts off the heat. Get the air moving and it usually solves the trouble. If it doesn't help this time around, post a follow-up. Thanks for using Fixya!

Tumble dryer is turning and heating up but the clothes are taking twice as long as they should to dry. why? could it be the fan and is it worth fixing or buying a new one


it is not likely the fan. check your vent and see if it is kinked or plugged. look behind the dryer for a kink. take the dryer out and vacuum the vent. then go outside and see if there is enough air coming out. there is the possibility that it could be the element as well as it have two heating element strands and one could be broke or grounded. get a digital thermometer and check temp at back of dryer when you take the vent off. somewheres around 140 degrees F to 160

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.


One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel
