Flashing check filter I have and cleaned all filter, but the dryer is still not drying.

Have you cleaned your outlet vent tubing? Cleaning filters is just one part of really cleaning your dryer. You have to clean your dryer vent from the back of your dryer. Disconnect the vent from behind your dryer and use a shop vac to suck out any lint that mite be built up. Blocked lint tubes are #1 cause of dryer fires.
Hope this helps

Fuse was replaced and ran for one cycle and now won't turn on.

what fuse the thermal fuse?if so did you clean out the dryer?the fuse usually pops because the dryer is runnung to hot,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out and vac the motor and the cabinet area where the motor is and clean out the vent line and the outside vent,if the vent lint is long use a leaf blower to clean it out.all a dryer does is move air,if the air can't move your gonna have problems,if it's gas you should do this once a year,electric every two years

My fridgidaire dryer model FDR336RDS2 seems to run too hot

Over heating in a dryer is almost always due to an air flow problem. Typically it is in the venting.

- Check the vent from the dryer to the wall by removing it and cleaning out, make sure there are no kinks or tears in it.

- Run the dryer once it is connected and feel outside to see if you are getting the same airflow outside as you can at the outlet of the dryer, if the air flow feels weaker outside your vent is restricted and you need to have it cleaned.

- If these are ok check your lint filter, softener residue can plug up the screen so air has trouble flowing trough it, you can wash it out with a brush and hot water

- With the lint screen out take a flashlight and look down the chute, if you see lint in there take a brush and vacuum and clean good

Frigidaire washer won't spin, belt seems to be ok. What else can I look for ?, Thank you. e-mail , OSUOWNSFOOTBALL@YAHOO.COM

Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning.
