Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Can an electric Frigidaire dryer be changed to side venting by simply replacing the rear-venting pipe from the blower manifold with a 4 inch long piece and a 90 degree elbow? the kit they sell has just one straight piece with a bracket for $20....

Yes. Keep in mind though, the sharper the turn of the vent, the shorter the total vent length should be. If the turn is veri sharp, it can result in lint accumulation where it turns.

Good luck

Keeps blowing thermal fuse even after complete cleaning of dryer door and blower and housing. changed vent to bucket and water lint trap. still blew fuse during fourth load.


have you check the fan blades?, is the fan loose at the motor shaft?, check inside the pipe of the blower housing for blockage. did you replace the thermal fuse alone or as a kit?, are ALL the seals in place including the blower seal?. after checking all that try to run dryer without the vent pipe attached and see if it hold.

I have a Kenmore Series 600 electric dryer and it takes forever to dry clothes. Over an hour for a regular load. There is no way this can be right. Is this a common problem with this model.


This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working properly. Ensure you are not running the dryer in a closed room which would starve the dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.

If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)

Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

My dryer is getting hot and turning but is not drying my clothes. We've checked the vent and hose, there is nothing there. What else can we do?

Dryer is getting hot but clothes are not drying


You have a vent problem. Eliminate all (if possible) flex duct (replacing with ridged aluminum pipe and aluminum elbows). Clean lint out of remaining vent pipe. Make sure vent is not crushed or obstructed, especially behind the dryer. If possible, make sure outside vent termination is not a two inch opening. (you want a full 4 inches)

you would need to "punch out the metal" , youl also need to remove the fron tof the unit(2 screws approx 3-4 inches down form inner panel, holding front panel on, ( youll need to remove the top of the dryer( a few screws across the back of unit.) andthen disconnect the dryer belt(easiest acess through a small acess panel on lower rear of unit, pull the dryer drum out and youl see the existing ve, just a matter of attaching a 90degree elbow and running vent out the side instead of out the back. DISCONNECT POWER TO UNIT FIRST!!!!!!!!!!

You are always better off using steel on these kinds of conversions and do not worry about how hot it gets,..Aluminum will get hot too. Steel is more rigid and less likely to dimple in while installing or hooking up the external vent system... Hope this helps..
