If you are comfortable with taking your dryer apart, do it and clean out all the lint. make sure it is unplugged before you do. also while you are in there examine the heating coils for any damage. if they are broken or damaged, get new ones. it's usually cheaper to check around locally before going to the manufacturer. turn the electric breaker all the way off and then on when you are ready to try it out. it is imperitive to NOT use it again untill it is checked out.

My frig. agq600fs gas dryer drum will not turn.


Good bet it's the motor!
Disconnect electric plug.
Have to get access to back of the dryer, remove a few screws.
Look at motor and belt, motors sometimes over heat - Burn Up.
Motor could be replaced, depending on the age and how long you have had it!

Possible lint blowing around on the heater coil. That burning smell is like paper burning. Get the dryer cleaned.
Make sure there is nothing sticking to the inside of the drum from previous drying.

There's a slight burning smell coming from the dryer drum.


Some item may have gotten between the drum that rotates and the housing and during the rolling of the drum this item may be heating up from the friction. Check closely to see if you can find anything rubbing on the drum.

Bosch Axxis WTL5410 condensation dryer does not heat up


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Dryer heating but not drying the clothes


be 100% sure there is a good air flow outside the house where the dryer vents out this is the most comon problem. Next check in side the dryer drum at the back give a slight tug on the drum toward the front of the dryer you are looking to mack sure there is not a gap between the bulkhead and drum felt. If there is a good seal there then I would repace the Theremostat on the blower housing this is the cycle theremostat

Gas dryer with gas smell and no heat


It sounds like your GLOW BAR gas igniter is bad. This is an electric powered heater coil that , when it glows red hot, ignites the gas burner. This part normally fails at least once during a dryers normal service life. If you are handy, you may be able to replace the part yourself. Otherwise, have a technician look at it. If you want to DIY, go to an appliance parts store . Remove and observe the GLOW BAR from your gas dryer. If one of the metal element appears to be burned open,replacement is necessary.. Show the part, along with your dryer maker, model, and serial number, to the store employee. This person can give you helpful info along with a new part. If the GLOW BAR is NOT burned out, seek out a technician.
