Question about Frigidaire Affinity 5.8 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer stops running after 10 minutes no heat at all all light flashing and stops. repairman came out and put new part in, but said the reason was we had a problem was we had a telescopic vent that caused dryer to overheat. His fix was to put a reset switch. problem is it shut off after one week, and we don't know how to open the dryer up to hit the reset button. Also my husbnd doesn't beleve the theory about the telescopic vent being the problem. Has anybody had similar problems, or instructions on how to open the dryer up to get at the reset button?

Maytag dryer panel lights are flashing how do I reset


Unplug the machine for a couple of minutes. Let the onboard computer reset itself this way. Plug back in and see if it stops the flashing lights. If unplugging for a couple of minutes does not solve the problem, call a repairman or contact the seller where you bought the machine and ask them what you can do. Hopefully the flashing lights are not an indication of larger problem that only a repairman can fix. Worth a try.

Summit washer/dryer combo quit drying. Repairman came and replaced themafuse and thermastat kit. Shortly thereafter, the dryer cycle timer would indicate 10 minutes left and never clock down. The dryer...


summit washers are prone to board failures i would say that is where the fault lies . thermafuse fuse means it has been overheating. means it can damage other parts. thermostat would thing that has just worn out thermostat can go if the unit overheats. under line is an electrical fault. but like i've said it is a common fault with this make and others. the main boards can only handle around 50c in temp after that they start to over heat and cause problems. the faults started when they moved the main board from the bottom to the middle.

Stops and all the lights come on


Instructions
    • 1 Make sure the home's gas supply valve is turned on. Check your Maytag owner's manual to find the location of the dryer's gas shut-off valve. This is usually behind the dryer's front panel or in the back of the unit. Open the valve to allow gas to flow into the dryer.
    • 2 Open the lower front panel of the dryer to access the pilot light assembly. Press and hold the starter button as you light the pilot with a handheld lighter. If you have trouble getting it to light, release the starter button and wait a few minutes before trying it again. Once the pilot is lit, hold the starter button down for another minute to make sure it will stay burning.

    • 3 Close the dryer's front panel and run a test cycle to see if it is producing heat. Call a repairman to evaluate the problem if lighting the pilot did not restore the heat.

The dryer is new and its not drying at all. also ths cooling system light is on?


Usually the reason is the exhaust vent in the wall leading to the outside of the house is heavily restricted with lint or other debris. Pull the exhaust vent out of the wall and run the dryer to see if the load dries normally. If it does, you will need someone to clear out the exhaust vent to resolve the drying issue.
The cooling light is a display that tells you what will be happening during the cycle. When it flashes, the dryer is in the cooling mode and is continuing its operation but with no heat. That usually lasts about 10 to 15 minutes.
