Dryer surface too hot to touch


this dryer is an electrical heated dryer i suppose, ask an electrician to check the heat sensor, for this should trigger the on and off switch of the heater according to the drying cycle you set your dryer.

Dryer timing button off


Hi - Are you referring to the dryer timer button (located on the far left side on most laundry centers) is broken? If so, you might need to replace the entire button. You can contact the manufacturer directly to get part or go through a part distributor but part numbers can be different.

I have a new 4 prong plug to replace a old 3 prong on dryer


On a three wire configuration, the ground and the negative are tied together at the center position, using the dryer ground strap. Following is a description of the difference between three and four wire. Hope it helps you.
These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top/left is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom/right.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.


Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

Frigidaire dryer overheating and shutting off mid cycle


Usually dryers have the exact opposite problem where the heat does not come on. Because most dryers have thermocouples (rated at 150 & 185 degrees) to prevent the dryer from getting too hot. You may have the blower fan come off of the motor. Check and see if you have air moving out of the vent. Also unplug the dryer and take the back off and inspect the area where it is getting hot. It may be some wires touching the case. Sometimes you can see the problem or smell something getting too hot. Either way be carefull. A dryer that overheats is a fire hazard!

Lp conversion for LG dryer


After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

Maytag Dryer


The secret to great dryer performance is air flow. Fresh air must enter from the rear of the dryer through the vents and exit through the exhaust. If this flow is compromised it will increase the dry times. The length and condition of your exhaust vent would be the first place to check. Some of the industry have said that if you use dryer sheets the lint filter could be plugged from the wax used in dryer sheets. This idea is not industry wide. If your lint filter apears to have a white color across the mesh, then it is plugged. Warm soapy water and a soft brush will clear your filter. Your dryer was designed to have a certain amount of cubic feet per minute of air flow. Anything that changes that will effect your drying cycle time. Lint build up inside the dryer can also restrict air flow. A back up of hot air will cause the thermostats to cycle off prematurely.It can also cause the the drive motor to over heat, the thermal overloads on the drive motor will kick out and keep the dryer from restarting again until the motor cools off. A loud buzzing noise or a lack to start or both can mean a bad motor.
