Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

it is either the coil is going bad or the thermo safety is bad, there should be a wiring diagram(usually located in the back of the dryer behind the knobs, just unscrew the back plate) and you will see the safety limit. You can bypass and see if that is the problem, if it is make sure to get a new one as if you leave it bypassed and use it down the road it may cause a fire. Hope this helps tim

I have checked and cleaned the vent hose and screen. However the back of the dryer gets very hot. Also the top gets to hot to even place your hand on it Frigidare GLER341As2


There is a safety thermo switch that is located on the top rear by the controls, it may be going bad, as if the coils get to hot it is suppose to shut the dryer down.

Whirlpool Dryer Does not dry


Its the thermal fuse. when you jump or, by-pass the cycle thermostat, you are basically by-passing the fuse as well. replacing the thermal fuse will fix thsi issue.

The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Conia CCD4501 cloths dryer not blowing hot air anymore


If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.

Candy washer dryer not drying


there is a safety feature which advances the timer to a stop position if it overheats on dry. this is caused by poor air flow.
to cure, take the dryer duct off mand clean of lint. this especially accumulates at the bend where the duct enters the tub.
