Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I was trying to remove the vent duct from the back of the dryer. I couldn't reach the screw to undo the c clamp. So I remove the screw above the duct to get more room. I pulled out the tube about 1inch and now I can't replace it.

    Could you be more specific? Where is this located? How large in the panel? Is it at the back of the dryer or front?

    Can you be more specific? Where are the screws located? Where is the top and front panels located?

  • teshagulati Oct 14, 2010

    I remove the front panel. The vent blower has a rubber tubing. Does that go on the inside or outside of the tubing?

    Yes, plus online searches once I knew the name of the parts. thanks

I have a W/pool awz135/3. The dryer runs etc, approx 15 mins of drying the lint filter light and buzzer comes on, and in turn shuts the heat off.No lint is in the unit.Any idea what is triggering this

It is possible there is an obstruction in the exhaust vent ducting or vent grill.first disconnect the power then carefully pull dryer away from the wall and look in the back of the dryer towards the bottom and you should see a ribbed 4" hose coming out of the dryer leading to a vent duct in the wall.make sure the hose is not pinched or collapsed if it is remove the pinch plug dryer in and try it and see if it still shuts down.if it does disconnecr the power again but this time get a 5/16 nut driver if the hose is connected with a metal hose clamp and remove both clamps on at the dryer and one at the vent.ic you have Plastic.clamps remove by pushing release tab on clamps and remove. Check inside hose for any obstructions and remove if any are present then. Check the vent duct and do the same. Reattach hose and clamps reconnect power and test and see if problem is solved if so push dryer back to original position taking care not to pinch
the hose.if the problem persist the dryer may have a faulty temperature high limit switch and gets quite a bit more involved.but try this first and see how it goes then if you want I can guide you on how to approach replacing the high limit switch if needed.

How do I clean the interior of a LG DLE3733W Dryer?

Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Both LG & Samsung appliances are a service technicians nightmare. They have the highest service call rate, the most expensive parts and take the most time to access and repair parts. I will give Samsung a thumbs up on televisions and stereo's.
It would be nice if consumer reports would survey field service technicians rather than owners and get the real story.

Believe me you do not want to disassemble. You are going to end up calling a service company to put it back together and get a $250.00-$300.00 bill.

Ok, what can you do? Air flow blows 95% of the lint out the connection to the outside air discharge behind your dryer.

1.) Pull your dryer out to the point that you can get behind it.
2.) Unplug your dryer.
3.) Hot air distribution manifold - There are several screws holding this on. There are no hot electrical components to be concerned with. Remove this.
In the bottom rounded part is where you get plugged up. Clean this out.

4.) Hot air discharge at the wall - Usually, the connector vent hose is held on with band clamps. In this case you need a flat heat screw driver to loosen and remove the vent hose.

5.) With a vacuum cleaner hose, vacuum out the hole in the wall as far as you can reach. Then, vacuum out the air discharge as far as you can reach. The hot air blower wheel in in the front of your dryer.

6.) Before reinstalling the hot air distribution manifold and connecting the out side air duct. Plug your unit in and turn your dryer on and run for 5 minutes to blow out excess lint. The hot air distribution manifold and the outside air duct create a back pressure. This way your blower wheel will run full open.

How do i pull th bottom off to clean vents?

i looked up your model dryer,your lint filter is on top so your duct or shute that the lint filter slides into is in the back.unplug the dryer,pull it a little way from the wall,look in the back to see how long the vent line is,then slide the dryer out enough so you can remove the vent line without ripping it off the dryer depending on how it's attached,some are clamped,some just slide out if connected to an elbow piece of vent tubing, taped on or some are screwed on.remove the vent line pull the dryer out and remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see the shute or metal duct, pull out the lint filter and remove the two phillips screws,remove the 4 screws that hold the duct on,remove the duct and clean it out,with a shop vac vac up any lint in the blower wheel and what's visible then set the vac to blow and blow out the blower wheel,the pipe where the vent line connects and the heater box on the right side,put the dryer back together except for the two phillips screws on if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,just stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint outside,first go outside and look at the hood where the air blows out,make sure nothing is blocking it,if there's a cage or like chicken wire remove it and keep it off so no lint can get trapped in it,you want the lint to blow outside freely,before you even start to clean out the dryer and vent you can start the dryer,go outside and check how strong the air is blowing out and then check it after you clean it out,it should be stronger,another sign that something is blocked is your clothes take longer to you should pull the front apart and clean the inside video,it will show you what to do.hope this helps and you should do this around every year to 18's easier than it sounds to do

Just purchased the above dryer. There is NO Power in the machine. Have checked the electrical cords and power right to the machine than nothing.

  • Measure the amount of distance between your dryer and your venting exit point. This is how many feet of duct to buy. Note how many turns the duct will need to make, and purchase that number of 90-degree fittings. Remember that your venting exit point must be at least 1 foot above ground level, and that your path shouldn't be longer than 25 feet, with 5 feet subtracted for every 90-degree turn.
  • Drill a hole through the wall in the area you'll install the vent. This step is to test for obstructions. Look for the hole outside, and check for obstructions there, too.
  • Bore a 4¼-inch diameter hole into your designated and tested venting exit point, using your bi-metal hole saw on your drill. Start the hole outside of the house. Brace the drill against your leg to help keep it steady, and pull it out frequently to avoid overheating the tool.
  • Install your vent's cap by screwing it over the hole you just drilled. Caulk around any gaps.
  • Cut away excess length from a straight section of duct using your tin snips. Construct the entire length of your duct by snapping the seams together. Start at the dryer. Attach one end of your duct work to your dryer's exhaust point, which is at the back of the dryer. The pieces should fit together snugly.
  • cover the seams between your 90-degree fittings and your straight lengths with metal foil tape. Connect the last piece of metal duct to the cap you installed earlier. Every 5 feet, attach the metal duct work to the wall using metal pipe straps and screws.
  • Plug in your dryer and turn it on to test your work.

    Hi...I have a Kenmore Gas Dryer (110.74642400)...I had a repair man come to fix and replaced the thermal fuse...however, it is not working again. It worked for about 3 weeks after he replaced that...

    if he changed the thermal fuse he should have cleaned out the dryer and vent line for you because it's just gonna pop again and again until the dryer gets cleaned need to unplug the dryer,pull it out and remove the vent line and the back panel,on the left side there's a duct that the lint filter slides into,pull out the filter and remove the two phillips screws in front of the filter on the top panel,go in the back and take out the four screws that hold the duct in place,remove it and clean it out,vac out any lint in the back of dryer,put the duct back the left of the duct and around four inches up you'll see a white thermal fuse part number 3392519,pull one of the wires off and check it with a meter,if it's bad change it,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you could have a birds nest in there or the lint just could have built up,make sure the outside vent is open with nothing blocking it,any screens or cages remove them all they do is catch lint.put the back panel on and the cleaned out vent line and put it back into place,don't put back the two phillips screws yet,next with a screw driver pop the top panel up,stick the screw driver in between the front and top panel around two inches in from the sides of dryer and pop up the top,next remove the two 5/16 inch screws one on each side of front panel and unplug the wiring harness in the top right side,you might have to stick a small screw driver in between the plastic to separate the plug,then pull up on both sides of front panel to remove it and vac out the inside of dryer.put it back together and you should have no more problems,let me know how you make out

    If still heating, clean out vent and check for kinks. Also, REMOVE PLUG FIRST!! Remove back and remove four screw holding filter duct assembly at bottom left. Pull duct toward rear and reach into bottom of duct and remove lint. Also, wash out filter screen.
