I had a bunch of verywet towels because my sink was leaking, and I put them in the dryer and it worked for a few minutes them stopped. What might be wrong?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you had a bunch of wet towels, and put them in your Frigidaire dryer, model# FGQ332ES. I see that your dryer worked for a few minutes and then stopped. There could be a possibility that the wet towels were too heavy from all the water in them. I suggest that you spin the towels out in your washer first and then move them over to your dryer. If you are still noticing the dryer working for a couple of minutes and then stopping, I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored start it on any cycle. If your dryer is still shutting off after a few minutes, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to shut off after a few minutes. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

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.

I have aa frigidaire front load washer model LTF2940FE1. We put a pretty big load of towels in this morning. halfway through the cycle the machune made a couple of loud noises, like it was shaking, and...


Never put a large load of anything in, they're quite frankly not designed to work like that for a number of reasons. If the drum is full then water can't circulate properly and your clothes won't get washed as well as they could do.

The machine shut down to prevent damage to itself, try turning it off at the mains for 30 mins, turning it back on and then putting half the load in. This should reset it and stop the shaking.

Was running a load of towels on auto sensor timer. Heard a pop and the dryer shut off. Sensor light was lit on wet. The dryer will not start under any settings. Sensor lights will flash on sometime,...


If you heard a pop then your belt probably fell off. There is a belt safety switch that wont allow the dryer to turn on if the belt is not attached

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer


This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.
