Typically, this is a symptom of a lint clogged vent or restricted air flow through an expandable, plastic or foil vent tube behind the dryer that is squished. First check your lint filter and clean it. With the filter removed, check the filter reservoir and see if there is a lot of lint that needs to be cleaned out. If not, then you will more than likely need to pull the dryer out to check the vent for blockage. Unplug the dryer and remove the vent from the back of the dryer. Using a flashlight, clean out or vacuum out the excess lint. Do the same for the vent tube you disconnected. Also check outside at the vent cap to make sure it is not blocked there and that good air flow allows the vent flap to open when the dryer is running. You can check this after you reassemble the vent inside and fire it off. Hope this helps solve your problem. Douglas

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load dryer problem:

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing.Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Frigidaire dryer started loud knocking. A cpl weeks later knock stopped but it took 2-3 cycles to dry. Now it won't dry at all. What's a good place to start troubleshooting?


Hello Dondrake, thank you for your submission!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer was knocking and now it is no longer heating. This could be a potential problem within your heating element or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord from the dryer for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful to your repair. -Matt

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 model 11094834200 it heats up for about 5 minutes and than stops heating. I replaced the thermistor thinking that was the problem but it wasn't. If I try re starting t


Number 34 is the sensor strips located on the rear bulkhead inside the dryer. Clean them thoroughly with Windex or 409. Dryer sheets build a wax buffer on them sensors that moisture cannot penetrate. If no wetness is detected the control shuts her down thinking them clothes is did. Either that or you forgot to reconnect the sensor wire when puttin her back together Kimosabe.

Have had a repair man out 3 times. Replaced igniter and gas regulator. Dryer will heat for a few minutes then stop heating. When I try to turn it back on, it will not turn on at all for about 10 minutes.


Are you saying the dryer will not start again after a few minutes? That is a motor [problem. Replace motor.
Are you saying dryer starts after a few minutes but will not heat? That is an air flow problem or a gas valve coil problem. Thoroughly clean EVERY single air passage in the dryer and vent tube. If that does not cure it, then replace gas valve coils if the igniter comes on and off.
