All them blinky lights mean the control is either satisfied that the clothes are dry OR it has an air restriction in the vent. OR one of the thermistors is out of spec.

    Forgot this tidbit; Get some windex and clean the sensors. They may have something on them that repells moisture and the machine thinks them clothes is dry.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.


Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

New dryer looks like never been used (got in purchase of home), pulled lint trap to see for lint (clean) flashed light inside trap (clean), drum turns when on and clothes become warm/hot but not...


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

I have a Kenmore Elite digital dryer, manufactured in 2002, and it will run for awhile but then it stops and sets itself to a certain dry time/settings and wont do anything else. When I press stop, it just...


I have a newer model of what I believe is the same dryer. I'm not sure if the layout is the same on yours as it is on mine.

I had the same problem, first the problem stems from user error -- there's a reason they say to empty the lint trap after every use. I know I've been remiss in emptying it thus my beeping bonanza.

Second -- THE FIX -- in the lint trap area (this is described based on my 2007/08 model) there are screws that allow you to remove the lint trap censor cover, unscrew, you'll see it's connected to wiring, there are 2 electrical connections, these slide on and off, gently pull and each will slide off, clean the connectors. By disconnecting to clean, which is the basis of the problem, the electric function resets (as far as I know), the beeping stops and you're good to go! Good luck.

Lint filter light flashing...on off light flashing. Cleaned lint filter and checked vent. Vacumed and brushed out lint area. Will not turn on.


Had the same problem. I clean it the way you mention with the addtion of blowing compressed air through the vent pipe and it still failed to work. I unplugged the power for a couple of mintues, still did not work. I rotated the dial and pressed start at each position. In the "SHORT" position, it worked and subsequently worked in all positions there after.

Sock in lint collector slot


Take a hanger Metal one, stick it down there and twist tell you get a good grab on the sock and pull it out. The other way is to open the back up and get in there. The machine will not work at all cause it can not exhaust

Fisher and Paykel electric top load dryer


Dd you try to unscrew the larger lint trap underneath the lint cup collector. My serivce person showed me how to do this and after a year I cleaned it out and was surprised how much lint was caught in there. My dryer was not heating and drying quickly, this helped the problem.
