Question about Dryers

1 Answer

After 10 minutes of so the top, side and back become very hot to the touch. I have turned the knob down to the second hottest level. I have it vented out side and keep the screen clean. I just cleaned the venting tube. What else can I do? Is there a way to clean the inside (i.e. can I stick the vacuum hose in the vent opening?) Please reply and thanks

Yes you can, but first you would have to remove the front of the Dryer, then you can clean then the vent and the vent tube.

I went to take a shower this morning and the water was ice cold. For more than twenty minutes the water ran and never warmed up. Are there common things to check my hot water heater for in this situ


There is an adjustment knob to control how hot the water can become. There might be a problem at the tap (however, if this is the case, you would still get hot water everywhere in the house). If the entire house isn't getting hot water, and the knob is set at the hottest water, you probably need to get the hot water tank replaced.

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

When I turn my dryer on it only stays on for about 10 seconds. When I try and turn it back on it won't come on. If a wait about five minutes it will come on again for about 10 seconds.


You have a thermal overload problem, motor is probably going bad. Pulling high amps, it you can touch the motor touch WITH CARE, if its bad it will be hot.

My electric dryer is becoming extremely hot during the drying cycle. I replaced a blown thermal fuse several weeks ago and the dryer was extremely hot at that time. The dryer runs but becomes so hot you...


Clothes will get very hot in the dry cycle, especially when the dryer is set to the warmest or hottest setting.
There are controls built into the unit to prevent it from overheating to the point of causing a fire. The thermal fuse you replaced is one of them (and I assume you replaced a perfectly good fuse with a new one as you said it was very hot.).
You might want to check the following if you feel the unit is getting too hot -

1) Make sure the lint screen is clean.
2) Make sure the hose between the back of the dryer and the exhaust duct at the wall wall is not kinked or full of lint.
3) Make sure the exhaust duct leading to outside of the house is clear and not full of lint.

Let me know what you find.

How to set the clock on a 2001 Nissan Frontier


Clock set:

To adjust the clock, press the tune knob for longer than 1.5 seconds. A beep signals entry into the clock adjustment mode and
CL appears in the display. The hours will be blinking. Rotate the tune knob to adjust the hours to the desired level.

Press the tune knob a second time and the minutes will start to blink. Rotate the tune knob to adjust the minutes to the
desired level. After 10 seconds, the radio or CD display will reappear. Once the clock is set to the desired level, press the knob repeatedly until the radio or CD display reappears.

All done!
