Clothes come out of washer AND dryer so wrinkled!

Hi Linda,
First I would make sure the dryer is heating. If the dryer is heating then I would check the airflow out of the machine. Check the dryer vents, and check the opening outside where the air comes out. Make sure they are all clear and the air is flowing out properly. Any blockage in the vents will cause the dryer not to dry your cloths. If you find that your dryer is not heating, you should check the voltage to the machine. You should have 220-240 volts AC. If you only have 110 volts then you may have a blown fuse or a tripped breaker in your box. Reset the breaker or replace the fuse if you find one bad. If you are getting the proper voltage to the machine and you have good airflow and still not drying well. Call for warranty service. Do not attempt to do any internal repairs yourself. If you do this will void your warranty and you sure dont want to pay for service on a 1 week old dryer.
I hope this will FixYa, and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask. I am happy to help.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.

Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance:


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:


  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.

Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

We purchased a Crosley Top loading high capacity washer several months ago. Why are ALL the clothes, regardless of fiber content, wrinkled when they come out of the washer? It does not matter the size


That's a normal result of the spin cycle which wrings the excess moisture out of the fabrics. The wrinkles should disappear, or be significantly reduced, after running them through a clothes dryer, or hanging them properly for line drying.

However, more wrinkles will remain if you allow the damp clothes to remain in the washer too long before drying.

I have a gleh1642fs4 model that drum will not spin?


I have a GLEH16242 Frigidaire/Electrolux stacking washer/dryer. The main bearing went out on the washer. I did the expensive fix of replacing the outer drum/bearing assembly in hope of nothing going wrong. Everything went together well, but now it won't go into high speed spin. It does if I have no clothes in it, but as soon as I introduce clothes it only does the 'medium spin' but never advances to the high. I've changed shocks, confirmed the door switch is working properly and double checked level. Even placed it on a big thick sheet of plywood in hops of stabilizing it more. It does have a wobble to it when it starts spinning, but when it kicks into medium spin, is smooths out.

Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer


This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.

Laundry too wrinkled


grabbed this of an official whirlpool web site: Clothing in the washer can become tangled and twisted or balled up.
Under certain conditions, a combination of the wash load, the cycle selected and the subsequent load movement can cause
the load to become tangled or twisted.
The wash impeller has been redesigned to make the wash load less likely to tangle under the conditions mentioned above.
Replace the wash impeller with part #W10141017.
willing to bet your serial number is before this number here. easy enough part to switch if its no longer under warr
SERIAL CODE RANGE: Prior to CU39
