FGR231ASY GAS DRYER BURNS FLEESE MATERIAL CLOTHING WHY


Hello my name is George,
I was wondering if the dryer was just burning fleece or all of your clothes. Fleece is a very delicate material, and should be dried on low temp or delicate depending on your drier. Driers are thermally protected inside with various parts. If the drier is getting to hot one of these would have caused the drier to stop heating. If the drier is burning all the clothes and not just the fleece I would recommend having a technician come out and check it as this could be a hazard for you and your family.

Kenmore dryer gets really hot on top of the dryer, not while clothes are drying but when finished, kinda scary?


Remember heat rises. However if it burns your hand or you can smell something you need to unplug the power to it asap. Most of them come with a one year in home service repair. It takes a while the heating elements to get hot in the dryer so that's probably why it seems its getting hot on top after the clothes have been in for a while.

My Maytag dryer does not get hot. It is about 4 years old and has been working great. Suddenly, it has stopped getting hot. The clothes tumble but there appears to be no heat. Air is blowing out the...


Sounds like heating coil is burned out which is not uncommon for four years. On Maytag it is usually a relatively simple fix because the front of the dryer is the access pannel for the repair. On mine there were two screws located down low and once removed the front popped off and coil was right there in front. the item can be picked up at an appliance repair supply center. Check the coil before you by because it could also be a defective themmostat but 99% of the time it is the coil.

My dryer gets hot but takes forever to dry clothes i changed the vent hose but it still takes a long time to dry


Hi, Welcome. Here is your problem.

Two heat temp sensors in dryer. One tells heating element to turn off & on Like your house thermostat but it is set & not adjustable. (More than likely the one going out.) The other is temp Overload to prevent dryer from catching fire. It is recommended that you replace these as pairs.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
